Report: Tottenham identify two potential candidates to replace Jose Mourinho

Brendan Rodgers and Julian Nagelsmann identified as Jose Mourinho replacements

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham are lining up replacements for Jose Mourinho as end-of-season contingency plans. Recent performances have put the serial trophy winner under immense scrutiny. However, any talk of sacking the Portuguese has been pushed back due to the cost of removing him from the job before 2023, when his contract ends.

The club have endured a huge drop in form which has pushed them all the way down to 9th place in the league table. Losses against Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Brighton have not helped the issue while Everton also managed to knock them out of the FA Cup.

While there is no talk of an immediate sacking, the higher-ups at the club are genuinely concerned with the side’s performances and would likely take a call on Mourinho’s future at the end of the season.

A crucial period starts for the side now with the Europa League knockouts and if Spurs cannot get through, it would only raise more concerns about Mourinho’s future at the club. Chairman Daniel Levy would want his appointment to work out but an underlying concern is the cost to sack him.

A £15million wage packet means that Mourinho is entitled to a significant payout if sacked. The club wants to avoid that having just finished paying off Pochettino and then taking on the added cost of a new manager.

Two managers that have caught the attention of the club are Julian Nagelsmann of RB Leipzig and Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City. However, any plans to get them would have to be next summer and also very costly. Both managers have done well at their current clubs and unsurprisingly have admirers at Spurs.

Another factor keeping Mourinho at the job is the non-availability of temporary solutions. Still, with what is going on currently, missing out on European football, treatment of certain players and Mourinho’s approach to games raises questions about his job security.
