Tottenham News: Jose Mourinho replacements identified as pressure ramps up

According to the latest news from the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho will lose his job if he fails to secure Champions League football for next season, with replacements already being lined up.

Tottenham were sent packing from the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night as a Mislav Orsic hat-trick condemned Mourinho’s side to a 3-2 aggregate defeat in the Round of 16.

The Europa League had been viewed as Tottenham’s best chance of securing Champions League football for next term given that the club hasn’t been doing all too well in the Premier League.

Spurs are currently eighth in the league table, six points off of Chelsea in fourth place who are 13 games unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel. So, the Europa League was viewed as the best avenue to win a trophy as well as secure Champions League football.

But, following Thursday’s events, that prospect has also disappeared. Mourinho, as per the report, needs to meet the minimum requirement of ensuring Tottenham qualify for Europe’s premier club competition if he is to have a chance of saving his job.

The Portuguese is already under internal scrutiny following the defeat to Dinamo Zagreb. Add to it, there has been some measure of unrest within the squad, something which captain Hugo Lloris also seemed to hint at, ramping up the pressure on the manager.

As a result, the club has already started the process of identifying replacements for Jose. Firstly, Brendan Rodgers, who has done some exemplary work since taking over at Leicester, is being considered. Along with him, RB Leipzig’s young tactician Julian Nagelsmann is also said to be a strong contender.
