Tottenham discuss replacing Jose Mourinho with Roberto Martinez

According to The Athletic (Subscription Required), Tottenham Hotspur are considering the possibility of replacing Jose Mourinho with Belgium manager Roberto Martinez.

Mourinho took over the reins at Tottenham in November 2019 following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino. However, things haven’t always gone according to plans for the Portuguese, who has come under intense pressure of late.

The disastrous exit from the UEFA Europa League at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb coupled with the possibility of Tottenham missing out on qualification for the Champions League once again next term has made Mourinho’s position somewhat untenable.’

So much so that, Tottenham are already looking at potential replacements for the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager. The likes of Brendan Rodgers (Leicester City) and Julian Nagelsmann (RB Leipzig) are names that have been doing the rounds for a while now.

Of late, even former Juventus and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had been touted as a target. And the latest name that has reportedly come up in conversations regarding a replacement for Jose Mourinho at Tottenham is that of Belgium manager Roberto Martinez.

The Spaniard has done a sterling job with the Belgian national team, taking them all the way to the semi-finals in the 2018 FIFA World Cup as well as the summit of the FIFA Rankings. Prior to that, he has had experience in the Premier League with Wigan Athletic and Everton.

Mourinho will be given time to turn things around. A trophy in the form of the Carabao Cup and a top-four finish in the league could be enough for a stay of execution. If those objectives are not achieved, he could find himself in a sticky situation.
