Jamie Redknapp on the scrutiny which Mourinho could face at the end of the season


Tottenham Hotspur face a crucial few weeks in what will decide on whether the season has been a success or a failure.

Daniel Levy decided to part company with Mauricio Pochettino after guiding the club to four successive appearances in the Champions League, along with a place in the final in 2019 and replaced him with Jose Mourinho.

Spurs currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League table, three points behind rivals Chelsea who occupy fourth spot.

Mourinho also has the chance to end the thirteen year wait for a competitive trophy when they face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on April 25th.

Former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Mourinho could be the subject of scrutiny if the North Londoners fail to qualify for the Champions League or win the final.

Redknapp has previously admitted that he has not been a fan of the style of play that the Portuguese has implemented at Spurs (Sky Sports).

“I think if they don’t get top four and don’t win the Carabao Cup there will be a lot of scrutiny on what he has done this season,” he told Football365.

“It is a good squad but an underachieving squad and I think you have to be very careful when you start questioning players’ attitudes and then say ‘We’re all in it together’.

“If you are questioning the players’ attitude we have to question your attitude as well.

“A couple of years ago they were in the Champions League final, in the top four every season with Mauricio Pochettino and playing good football, whereas I don’t think it has been an easy watch for Tottenham fans this season.

“Jose will hope they can win something and get top four and will look at it as a really successful season.”
