Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur will make a decision on Jose Mourinho’s future in the summer depending on the team’s performances for the remainder of the season.

Speculation over Mourinho’s future has gone into overdrive over the past few weeks following Tottenham’s elimination from the Europa League.

Reports indicate that the Tottenham boss runs the risk of being sacked if the North Londoners do not finish in the top four this season.

Several names have been mooted as potential replacements for the Portuguese coach including the likes of Julien Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers, Massimiliano Allegri and Diego Simeone.

Gold has now revealed that Mourinho still has Daniel Levy’s support, as well as the support of the majority of the dressing room.

The journalist revealed that the 58-year-old is almost certain to stay until the end of the season but admitted that the club could have a decision to make in the summer.

When asked about the speculation surrounding Mourinho’s future during a Q & A with Spurs fans, Gold responded: “Clearly some of the players aren’t happy with their lack of game time but he’s got enough support behind him for now.

“Most importantly for him, Daniel Levy put so much into bringing him to the club, making a huge decision in relieving Mauricio Pochettino of his duties to do so, that he simply has to give him a chance.

“My personal feeling is that unless there is an utter collapse in team morale and togetherness that destroys the season, Mourinho will get the rest of the season – Spurs are only three points off the top four and have a cup final to look forward to next month – and then a decision on what happens next will take place at the end of the campaign.”

Spurs Web Opinion

As much as Levy will be keen for Mourinho to succeed, the Spurs chairman has shown in the past that he can be a ruthless operator who does not hesitate in making a tough decision if he feels it is in the best interest of the club. So, I believe Mourinho could be sacked in the summer if we do not get into the top four this season.
