Jose Mourinho’s managerial CV speaks for him and that is why it represented a major coup when Tottenham convinced him to become their latest manager.
The Lilywhites wanted to build on reaching the final of the Champions League in 2019 and only a few managers can go that extra step up to win the competition.
He got himself some credit after leading Spurs from closer to the bottom half of the league table into the Europa League places in the 2019/2020 season.
They also started this campaign well and were even top of the table at some point, but things have changed now.
Spurs are struggling to put results together and this has affected their league standings.
Naturally, the manager pays the price for a team’s poor form and there have been calls from some fans for Mourinho to be sacked.
The Portuguese boss’ job is safe for now ESPN reveals and this is because he has some sympathy among the club’s decision-makers.
The report says Daniel Levy isn’t looking to sack him until the end of the season at least.
The club has some sympathy towards him because his team’s form began to dip when they were without Harry Kane for a period.
If he can beat Manchester City to win the Carabao Cup, that should keep the board and fans onside, for now.
