Jose Mourinho is going through trials and tribulations at Tottenham Hotspur.

The fifty-eight-year-old strategist has spent nine years in the Premier League and has managed three clubs. He served his longest time at Chelsea, though it was not over a continuous period. Regrettably, he was sacked by the Blues, on December 15th, 2015, and was promptly hired by Manchester United. The Red Devils grew tired of his antics quickly and sacked him on December 18th, 2018. Notwithstanding the Europa League title, he had won in his first season.

However, despite his behavioral issues, the giants across the pound in North London took an interest in him. They signed him on November 20th, 2019. Subsequently, he repaid the loyal supporters by catapulting them to a sixth on the table, jumping up by fourteen spots.

Nonetheless, Jose Mourinho has left Tottenham in a disastrous situation this Premier League season. According to recent rumors, Jose Mourinho will be dismissed if Tottenham loses against West Ham on February 21st, 2021.

Mourinho says a coach is only as bad as his players

Mou responded to the rumors in an interview with the Express on February 21st, 2021; he said, “A coach’s weakness depends on his players’ performances.” Jose Mourinho has never admitted when he makes a mistake, and in past times he has pushed the blame onto others.

Jose Mourinho will never change.

Moreover, Mourinho would have to update his resume soon if he keeps up with his recent antics.

Tottenham lacks killer quality says, Jose Mourinho

In an interview with the Guardian on February 19th, 2021, Jose Mourinho said that “You can teach players how to transition themselves on the field, but scoring goals cannot be taught. All players in Tottenham lack the killer instinct.”

Consequently, Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been in great form for the Lilywhites. He has scored thirteen goals in eighteen appearances, so the point discussed by Mourinho stands moot.

The Portuguese manager has always shown disregard towards anyone who asks him questions that would create doubt in his ability to lead a football club. On February 5th, 2021, he was asked why he did not include Gareth Bale in his side’s loss against Chelsea, and he responded by saying,it’s a good question that does not deserve an answer.”

The designation of the ‘special one’, no longer applies to Mourinho. His inability in making decisions at crucial junctures is the main reason for it.
