Jose Mourinho’s post-match comments following Tottenham’s 2-1 loss to West Ham on Sunday has received a mixed reaction from various Spurs fans on social media.

The loss against the Hammers was Tottenham’s fifth defeat in their last six Premier League matches and leaves the North Londoners with a mountain to climb to get into the top four.

Mourinho himself admitted in his post-match press conference that a top-four finish now appears difficult but it was another one of his comments that has incited a visceral reaction on social media.

When asked if he was starting to question his own methods in light of recent results, the Spurs boss insisted that his methods are second to no one in the world and stated that there are some problems in the side that he cannot fix with coaching.

While some fans took his statement to be rather obvious and suggested that the poor results are down to the lack of quality in the squad, others insisted that Mourinho should resign if the Portuguese coach does not feel he can turn results around.


Spurs Web Opinion

The fact of the matter is that Mourinho and his coaching staff simply cannot account for the number of unforced errors our players have made at the back over recent weeks. Both the goals we conceded against Hammers came about as a result of poor defending.

However, that is not to absolve Mourinho of responsibility for our poor run of form as the buck stops with him. He needs to find a way of turning around our form quickly or he would be at very real risk of losing his job before the end of the season.
