‘Head is hurting’ – Some Spurs fans react to Mourinho sacking

Some Tottenham fans on social media were pleased to hear that Jose Mourinho had been sacked but were left surprised at the timing of the announcement.

Multiple reports over the past few weeks had indicated that the writing was on the wall for Mourinho as the club’s chances of a top-four finish appeared to be diminishing.

Tottenham today confirmed that the 58-year-old and his coaching staff, Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra, were relieved off their duties, with Ryan Mason set to temporarily take over first-team duties.

Some Spurs fans believed that Mourinho’s sacking was inevitable but others were surprised at Daniel Levy decision to pull the plug less than a week before the Carabao Cup Final.

Meanwhile, a few suggested that perhaps Tottenham’s inclusion in the European Super League on Sunday might have had something to do with Levy’s decision on Mourinho since the North Londoners were in line for a potential financial boost from the newly announced competition.


Spurs Web Opinion

I do not believe the extra fund Spurs are potentially set to receive as a result of the European Super League had anything to do with this decision. The competition is still unlikely to go ahead as there will be legal challenges.

I believe Levy probably made up his mind a while ago but it was possible that the Spurs chairman was preoccupied with the details regarding the ESL announcement until yesterday and decided to make the move once the details of the ESL were made public.

  1. The main problem with Mourinho is that his conncentration was always on defence rather than attack, while his treatment of Gareth Bale was atrrocious. Kane, Son and Bale should have been the first three names on the teamsheet every week, but having a player of Bale’s quality languishing on the subs’ bench every week was outrageous. Spurs’ strengths are in attack, not defence, and why is the goalkeeper the captain? He is certainly s dubious goalkeeoer anyway, but the main man should always be an outfield player who can can easily make contact with the other players. Recently Spurs had an away game where a goai could count double, but Jose’s strategy was to protect the two-goal lead instead of going for the jugular. Good riddance to him.
