Jermaine Jenas has claimed that there appears to be no way back for Jose Mourinho as Tottenham Hotspur manager.

Tottenham’s hopes of success in the Europa League were brought abruptly ended by Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday evening, despite the North Londoners having taken a two-goal advantage into the second leg, only for a Mislav Orsic to cause one of the upsets of the season.

Spurs now have 10 Premier League games left to get into the top four, while they currently sit eighth, six points off Chelsea in fourth.

The Portuguese is said not to have a break clause included in the contract he signed in November 2019 which could see Spurs having to pay him £30million to part company at the end of the season (Football.London).

Jenas believes the way in which Spurs lost the match to the Croatian outfit was most concerning, suggesting that the players did not appear to be playing for their manager.

The former midfielder told the BBC’s Friday Football Social: “You could tell by the body language of the players that they were not engaged in this game at all, they didn’t seem to be responding to what Jose probably asked of them.

“I don’t feel like the players were playing for him at all and that’s that’s my biggest concern.

“I think the minute that happens, only one thing happens after that and that’s a manager losing his job.”
