Why Mourinho May Never Be ‘The Special One’ Again

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore says for Jose Mourinho to be regarded as the ‘Special One’, again he has to adopt a different approach in terms of man-management. It has been a tough season for Mourinho and his Spurs players as they are in danger of missing out of top-four as they are currently seventh. They’ve since been eliminated in the Europa League but will feature in the League Cup final. Poor results have seen the former Chelsea manager criticize his players in public. And Collymore believes Mourinho needs to take a different view to get back to his best. “If Jose Mourinho is ever going to be the ‘Special One’ again, and he’s still young enough to do it, then he has to realise his old-school approach to man-management is a problem,” he wrote on The Mirror....

I Fear For Mourinho – Rio Ferdinand

  Manchester United and England legend, Rio Ferdinand has accused Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho of ‘creating a rift’ within his own team after the Portuguese took another swipe at his Spurs squad following their 2-2 draw with Newcastle at the weekend. Spurs were unable to beat Newcastle on Sunday, a result that would have seen them climb to fourth place after Chelsea were thrashed by West Brom earlier on Saturday. After the game against Newcastle, reporters reminded the Portuguese gaffer that his teams are usually good at defending leads and he responded: “Same coach, different players.” Ferdinand said that the former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United manager may have done more harm than good with his usual attacks on his players, adding that he ‘fears’ for...

Why Tottenham May Avoid £30m Mourinho Pay-off if he is Sacked

Tottenham Hotspur may have to pay less than the reported £30million in pay-off, if they decide to sack Jose Mourinho as manager this summer, Daily Mail reports. Rumours had claimed Mourinho would be due a huge compensation if the club decided to sack him ahead of his contract expiring in 2023. The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss is said to be earning around £15million a year with Spurs and with no break clause, chairman Daniel Levy would have to stump up the remainder of his expected salary should he choose to let the manager go. However, Mourinho’s payout is dependent on Tottenham’s league position and if the club qualifies for Europe. Failure to reach the Champions League or Europa league would see his entitlement reduced in the event he was to lose his job....

Mourinho Blames Individual Mistakes for Tottenham’s 2-2 Draw with Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has blamed individual mistakes for his side’s 2-2 draw with Newcastle United on Sunday. Joelinton gave Newcastle the lead in 28 minutes before Harry Kane’s brace put Spurs in front after the first 45 minutes. However, Arsenal loanee Joe Willock scored a late equalizer for the Magpies as both teams shared a point each. “It’s not a good point. We came here with the objective to win it, so (I am) not happy with a point,” Mourinho said at a post-match press conference. “I don’t want to go very deep on my analysis because what I feel, what I think, what I want to say, cannot be with you. It can only be in the dressing room.” He added, “I would say that (there were) too many individual mistakes and then mistakes give instability and ma...

I Won’t Play that Game – Mourinho Reacts to Transfer Talk about Harry Kane

  Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he will not “play that game” of speculating on Harry Kane’s future. According to him, Kane should “be happy with the moment he is living” for England and Spurs. The 27-year-old striker stoked rumours he may consider leaving Tottenham after Euro 2020 when asked about reports linking him with a move to Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid. “I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there,” Kane said in response. However, Mourinho, speaking at a press conference on Friday, said: “I cannot play that game. I have to focus on what is for us. “Of course I am always pleased when my players go to national teams and do well. “...

What Mourinho Did to me at Chelsea – Obi Mikel

  Former Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel, has disclosed that Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, helped him to become the player he is today during their time together at Chelsea. The 33-year-old said Mourinho didn’t just help him football-wise, but the former Manchester United manager was one of the people who helped him grow up at Stamford Bridge.

:Mourinho set to expose Tottenham players who criticized his methods

Those results have seen Mourinho’s future at the club called into question, while stories also emerged of discontent within the squad. After the defeat to West Ham, a report in The Athletic claimed players were questioning his overly reactive and defensive approach in games. They also felt training ...

Mourinho Speaks on ‘next challenge’ after Tottenham Beat Aston Villa

  Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has said the next challenge is to maintain the high standards in terms of effort, commitment and sacrifice in his team. Mourinho, speaking after their 2-0 win at Aston Villa, wondered why it took two dreadful performances to galvanise them into action. Spurs lost 2-1 to Arsenal last Sunday, before crashing out of the Europa League after a 3-0 defeat at Dinamo Zagreb. But goals by Carlos Vinicius and Harry Kane earned three points at Villa, taking Tottenham up into sixth place in the Premier League, just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. “Okay I am really happy with [the response], but it is sad we need such a bad defeat to have this kind of reaction. “This should not be a reaction, this should be a permanent st...

Tottenham Hotspur View Julian Nagelsmann As Ideal Jose Mourinho Replacement

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly already begun the process of identifying potential replacements for Jose Mourinho, with the club's current manager coming under increasing pressure. Spurs suffered a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the North London derby last weekend before losing 3-0 at Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League on Thursday night to exit the competition 3-2 on aggregate.

According to the Daily Mail, senior figures behind the scenes are of the opinion that RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann would be the ideal replacement for the Portuguese. Nagelsmann managed Hoffenheim between 2016 and 2019 before joining Leipzig, a...
