Glenn Hoddle says it will be ridiculous for Tottenham to sack Jose Mourinho even though the Portuguese manager is enduring the worst spell of a Spurs’ manager since Juande Ramos.
The club made him the replacement for Mauricio Pochettino at the end of 2019 because they wanted to start winning trophies.
After leading them to a European place finish last season, they expected him to bring a trophy home in this campaign and top four football.
But their current form isn’t that of a team that can even secure a top-six position and there have been calls for Spurs to sack him.
They have lost five of their last six league games, a run of form that has seen them move further away from the top four.
Despite their poor run of form, they are in the Carabao Cup final and they also look to have secured a round-of-16 spot in the Europa League.
Hoddle says it makes no sense to sack someone that has a cup final to play, especially because that is the reason they made him the club’s manager in the first place.
‘No I don’t, not at the moment,’ Hoddle responded when asked whether the Spurs boss should be sacked on his podcast for the Evening Standard.
‘He has been brought in to bring silverware, he is in a cup final. How can you sack somebody who has got a cup final in April? It is ridiculous. That is the reason why he has been brought in.’
