“Of course”: Rival legend delivers surprise verdict on Jose Mourinho’s situation at Tottenham

Roy Keane tells Daniel Levy to stick with Jose Mourinho as Tottenham manager

Speaking on Sky Sports (h/t Football.london), former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has told Tottenham chairman to persist with Jose Mourinho as the manager amid growing pressure.

Mourinho has been at the club since November 2019, taking over from Mauricio Pochettino. However, the Portuguese hasn’t had it easy at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and has come under increasing pressure in recent weeks.

The elimination from the UEFA Europa League and the slim chances of making it into the top four has meant that there have been speculations that the club could consider getting rid of him. In fact, he is the bookies’ favourite to be the next Premier League manager to get sacked after Sunday’s loss to Manchester United. (h/t Football.london)

Keane, however, has claimed that Levy and Tottenham should give Mourinho more time to turn things around at the club. The Irishman is of the opinion that even the best of managers have difficult periods and Mourinho’s past accomplishments should be enough for Spurs to stick with him.

“I think his CV warrants him to stay longer in the job. We don’t know what’s going on in the background, sometimes his relationship with board members or players, he can fall out with people.

“But from a footballing point of view, I would of course stick with him because his CV warrants certainly another year or two at the club. I’d say that anyway about giving managers a chance because I’ve been a manager and sometimes it does take a bit longer, even for the great managers.”

As things stand, Tottenham are six points behind Chelsea in fourth place with seven games left to be played. Mourinho does have a great opportunity to end the club’s trophy drought when we face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final later this month.

A cup win, coupled with a top-four finish could be enough for Mourinho to save his job.
