Jose Mourinho only convinced by Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham’s defenders

Jose Mourinho suffered his first defeat as Tottenham manager at the hands of Manchester United.

Losing any game is tough for the boss to take, but getting beat by a former club is even tougher to take.

Our defence was at fault again as we conceded two poor goals, one being a penalty, and there have been some questions on our back four.

We have conceded a couple of goals in every game under Mourinho, and the Independent claims that he is only keen on Toby Alderweireld remaining at the club from the defence (h/t Sun).

The Belgian is a free agent in the summer and he hasn’t agreed on a new deal yet. Jan Vertonghen is another who is a free agent in the summer.

The report goes on to say that Mourinho isn’t convinced with Davinson Sanchez too.

The former Manchester United boss even targeted the ex-Ajax centre-back in the Europa League final in 2017 (h/t Sun).

Big decisions coming up from Mourinho

Mourinho has some big decisions to make in the summer window with several players out of contracts.

Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen are free agents, and it will be interesting to see what his plans are for the defence.

Serge Aurier, Danny Rose and Sanchez have all struggled this season. However, making wholesale changes to the back four won’t be cheap.
