Tottenham News: Steven Gerrard lined up as Jose Mourinho replacement

According to news from 90min.com (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur have identified Liverpool legend and Rangers manager Steven Gerrard as a candidate to replace Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician has been at the club since November 2019, having come in as a replacement for the sacked Mauricio Pochettino. However, given the current scenario, Mourinho, too, could also be facing a similar prospect after recent results.

Tottenham endured a torrid last seven days that saw them lose to arch-rivals Arsenal in the Premier League. This was followed by a meek surrender against Dinamo Zagreb which led to the team’s elimination from the UEFA Europa League.

The prospect of no silverware, although the Carabao Cup is still up for grabs, and the danger of missing out on Champions League football for another season has brought Mourinho under intense pressure.

Amidst this, news of Tottenham giving Mourinho time till the end of the season to save his job has been doing the rounds. And should he fail to meet the club’s objectives, the Portuguese will be given the sack with replacements already being identified in the form of Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers and Julian Nagelsmann of RB Leipzig.

Now, the name of Steven Gerrard has also been added to the list of potential candidates who could replace Mourinho at Tottenham. The former Liverpool captain is currently the manager of Scottish giants Rangers, where he has done an incredible job.

Gerrard led the Gers to their first-ever Scottish Premiership title in over ten years this term, while also bringing an end to Celtic’s dominance and doing so in some style. This has brought him to the attention of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, although there are slight concerns over his lack of experience.

Mourinho’s fate at Tottenham will be decided based on how the team fares between now and the end of the season. A top-four finish along with the Carabao Cup triumph could just about save his job. If not, Gerrard could be in line to replace the Portuguese.
