Tottenham sacked Jose Mourinho amid concerns of a player revolt

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur sacked Jose Mourinho from the managerial position due to concerns of a player revolt and unhappiness among senior players including Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane.

Mourinho had been in charge of Tottenham since November 2019 having taken over from Mauricio Pochettino who had been axed. The Portuguese managed to take us to a sixth-place finish last season and things started on a positive note this term as well. In fact, towards the end of the last year, Spurs were at the top of the league table at a point.

However, it is from that point that things went downhill, with the team being unable to string together a winning run. Throw in the exits from the FA Cup and the Europa League, the noose was tightening around Mourinho with every passing game.

And, the 2-2 draw against Everton this past Friday proved to be the last straw. The club announced on Monday, amid the storm kicked up by the European Super League, that Mourinho and his coaching staff were relieved of their duties with immediate effect.

And, now, it has emerged that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy decided to act amidst a player revolt, with the report claiming that several first-team players complained to the chairman about the tactics and training methods that were used by the manager.

Amid growing concerns, the report states that, Levy had to act after senior figures in the team, Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, who has been behind Mourinho all the way, also started showing signs of unpleasantness.
