Tottenham Hotspur parted company with head coach Jose Mourinho last month after the club found themselves in seventh place in the Premier League table and having ended any hope of qualification back into the Champions League by winning the Europa League.
Unlike when Levy dispensed of the services of Mauricio Pochettino seventeen months ago, having appointed Mourinho a mere matter of twelve hours later, this time around there hasn’t been such a swift change of guard.
Having arrived in North London with a record of boasting a silverware at every club he has managed, the Portuguese departed N17 empty-handed, having not had the chance to lead his side out at the Carabao Cup final last weekend with Levy instead entrusting 29-year-old Ryan Mason until the end of the campaign.
Mourinho has been speaking about his next steps in the footballing world and insists that he is in no rush to return to the game, admitting he will spend the time working on his craft and next season could be too soon for his next gig.
He told Times Magazine: “I have no plans,”
“I am going on with my normal life. I feel fresh. I feel calm. I am on holiday.
“I have more time to be doing my homework and analysis. I’ll wait to be back in football.
“Not just for the right club, but for the right culture. Maybe next season is premature, we will see.”
