Tottenham board divided regarding Jose Mourinho

According to The Independent (h/t Express), the Tottenham Hotspur board is divided regarding the decision to continue with current boss Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician has guided the club to the Carabao Cup final and also to the last 16 of the Europa League. Tottenham looked set to challenge for the Premier League but a run of poor results has now seen them drop to ninth place.

While there is a belief among some that Mourinho is yesteryear’s manager and needs to be sacked, the thought is far from unanimous. There are people who believe the 58-year-old is the right man to lead the club.

The uncertainty surrounding Mourinho’s future has seen the club get linked with a slew of candidates to replace the Portuguese. Both Brendan Rodgers and Julian Nagelsmann have been touted as potential replacements. (h/t The Express)

Breathing space!

Spurs brought cheer to the fans and a semblance of calmness with the 4-0 win over Wolfsberger in the Europa League on Wednesday. Hopefully, we can carry forward this momentum into this weekend’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace. It should at the very least give Mourinho some breathing space for the time being.

Spurs star Harry Kane is a member of the Mourinho-in camp and believes the club should stick by their man.

Harry Kane has backed Mourinho

It was reported earlier this week that a number of  Spurs stars have been left unimpressed by Mourinho’s training techniques. The 58-year-now now faces a real challenge on his hands and must ensure he can pull through and prove his supporters right.

Patience is a wafer-thin commodity in today’s world and more so in football. How much of it will be afforded to Mourinho remains to be seen.

Mourinho is a manager who thrives on antagonism. He does tend to rub off people the wrong way and often makes use of the carrot and stick approach. Given his struggles in recent years, he has the opportunity at Tottenham to rekindle his reputation.

There is a lot to lose for both sides and sticking with Mourinho, for now, appears to be the safer option. After all, the last thing we need at the moment is another rebuild. Mourinho appears to have allies withing the Spurs board. The sooner he turns things around, the easier it will be for him to draw more support.
