Former English international Darren Bent, a Tottenham striker between 2007 and 2009, pointed out several criticisms of the work developed by José Mourinho in the spurs at a time when the Portuguese coach’s team is going through an acute crisis of results.
«Right now, Mourinho is under enormous pressure and Tottenham fans are clearly not enjoying what they are seeing. In the first phase, this was already happening because of the football that the team plays but, as Tottenham was up there in the classification… Now, suddenly, things have turned and if Mourinho ends the season without winning any title I think there is no chance to continue. If Tottenham finish in 10th place in the Premier League, what is the use of bringing in this coach? I know you are in the League Cup final against Manchester City but nobody expects to win it, ”he said on the radio Talksport, also recalling the work of Mauricio Pochettino in Londoners.
«Pochettino always finished in the top four, took Tottenham to a Champions League final and was fired because they considered he was not the man to take them to the titles. But if you bring a born winner and he doesn’t even qualify for the Champions League or Europa League, there is no way to hold him back ”, concluded the former player, also pointing out the name of Julian Nagelsmann, from RB Leipzig, as the favorite to succeed to the Portuguese.
