Mauricio Pochettino’s time at Tottenham Hotspur has been nothing but positive. He has rejuvenated a Europa League side into Champions League regulars who are fighting for the Premier League title. However, the Argentine has failed to win a trophy which Jose Mourinho has slammed.
Pochettino joined Spurs in 2014 where he has increased the win ratio and made the north London side a force in Europe and domestically with his own philosophy.
Despite managing to get a to a League Cup final in 2014 against Chelsea and back to back FA Cup semi-finals in 2016 and 2017, they have never had the cutting edge to win a trophy.
Jose Mourinho, who was sacked as Manchester United boss in December claims that footballing philosophies are pointless if no trophies are won.
“I won titles everywhere I have been and I cannot run away from my mentality,” Mourinho told beIN SPORTS.
“Some coaches like to sell the idea of a philosophy, but you have to sell the philosophy after you win. If you win nothing what is the point?
“If your team plays very well, your team wins, so I don’t like these contradictions we have in football nowadays.”
Jose Mourinho also announced that he has had offers from a number of teams but has decided to wait until the summer to return to managerial life.
