Spurs legend Micky Hazard backs Jose Mourinho to rebuild Tottenham

According to the Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur legend Micky Hazard has backed Jose Mourinho to rebuild the club once the coronavirus pandemic blows over.

It has been a season of challenges for Tottenham. The club was not able to build upon last season’s success and have struggled for consistency. With the performances on the pitch not picking up, Daniel Levy made the decision to replace Mauricio Pochettino with Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese breathed new life into a flagging season and initially started off with six victories in his first ten games. That promise has since petered off and the club is currently struggling to earn a top-four finish.

A victim of the circumstances

Injuries have not helped matters as the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Moussa Sissoko among a slew of first-team stars all sidelined for considerable periods.

These difficulties are recognized by Hazard, who is sympathetic towards the restrictions placed upon Mourinho. A former UEFA and an FA Cup winner, he is aware of what the club needs to do to succeed.

“Sometimes things are out of your control as a manager”

He claimed that Mourinho was hard done by losing his best players and such a situation is likely to affect any other team just as direly. Hazard brought up the example of Liverpool and stated that the Reds would struggle in the absence of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

The ex-player also goes on to back Mourinho by claiming that the busy schedule gave the manager no time to work on aspects of the team such as the structure or shape.

He has fully backed the Portuguese to deliver once he has had enough time. Labelling Mourinho a born winner, Hazard believes he will win trophies at the club before he eventually leaves.

“I expect to see a lot more of his ideas and he’ll have instilled the attributes he’s renowned for.”

Hazard also touched upon Tottenham’s defensive woes and claimed it to be the club’s Achilles heel this season.

Not the biggest concern today!

Hazard believes that the current break will do his team good but conceded that dealing with the ensuing pandemic takes precedence over football.

“Lives are being lost and people are dying – football is secondary”
