Jose Mourinho is under the immense pressure of getting desirable results for Spurs since the club management is looking for potential replacements for him.
Spurs began the season well but later lost focus. They have lost four of their last five matches, picking only 16 points in 14 games.
Mourinho was lauded for his side’s performances back in December when Tottenham topped the English Premier League table. His tactics now seem not to work since they have continued to record poor performances.
The Tottenham board is considering to replace Mourinho since he has failed to get the desired results. According to The Daily Mail, the club chiefs have identified two potential replacements.
Their continued poor form has seen them drop to the ninth position in the Premier League table, after losing 3-0 to Pep Guardiola’s side Manchester City.
Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers are two potential replacements for Mourinho as reported by the Daily Mail.
Leicester under Brendan Rodgers
Since Leicester won the Premier League under Ranieri, they have become a top Premier League club on and off the field. Leicester are currently third in the Premier League table just seven points behind leaders, Man City.
Nagelsmann, on the other hand, was recently branded the best upcoming coach worldwide after taking Leipzig to the Champions League semi-finals last season.
Tottenham to pay a price if they sack Mourinho
Mourinho is one of the highest-paid coaches in the world, pocketing £15m per year. Sacking him will cause a setback for Tottenham’s finances.
Daniel Levy, Spurs Chairman, hoping the former Chelsea and Man Utd manager’s performance will improve to avoid losses.
According to Jamie Carragher, Tottenham will not finish in the top four under Jose Mourinho, and they would have done far much better under Mauricio Pochetino.
“Now, it’s not about proving me right or wrong, I do worry for Tottenham as I don’t think they are good enough for top four, I don’t think they will get top four because of that reason,” he told Sky Sports.
“I think what Pochettino did, Pochettino was criticised for not getting a trophy and I can get that.
“But when we think of Tottenham and trophies, let’s be honest about it, we never think of Tottenham for the league or the Champions League.
“We think in every 10 years they might win an FA Cup or a Carabao Cup.”
