The Sun’s David Kidd has suggested that Daniel Levy may be tempted to sack Jose Mourinho before the start of next season if Tottenham’s results do not improve.
Kidd claims that there were a lot of dissenting voices at Tottenham when the club’s chairman decided that Mourinho would be the right man to replace Mauricio Pochettino at the helm back in November.
It is said that Levy’s first-choice was Brendan Rogers but he was ‘seduced’ by Mourinho’s high profile.
The article goes on to explain how the Spurs chairman is currently facing a nightmare scenario with the club’s revenue streams having stopped and the team showing no signs of improving on the pitch under Mourinho.
The Portuguese coach reportedly has three years left to run on his £15million-a-year contract with the North Londoners.
Kidd claims that while Mourinho would have been guaranteed at least one summer to rebuild the squad under normal circumstances, the unique challenges that Spurs are facing at the moment may force Levy’s hand.
It is asserted that the Spurs boss has to ensure that the team manages to at least qualify for the Europa League in the six remaining games or he risks losing his job before completing a full season with the club.

There is little chance that Levy will sack Mourinho and pay off his contract just months after appointing him. Besides, I believe Jose’s contacts could come in quite handy for the club when the transfer market opens this summer given the lack of funds at their disposal. It is clear that we will have to be creative in the market, and going by what Jose has been saying, it looks as if he has bought into the club’s transfer policy.
