Journalist reveals the conditions under which Mourinho may be sacked this summer

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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Take the loss, and get him out of our club.
    His style of football is mind numbing. Not only for us as supporters but judging by their body language for the players too.
    We may not have won much of anything under Ossie, Ghod, Gerry Francis, TV , Harry or Poch but we were always an entertaining watch. If all I cared about was the result, I wouldn’t bother to watch the game. The game is about passion, sharing hopes and dreams, highs and lows, expectations and frustrations. We need that from our football, especially in the world as we currently find it. I don’t hate Mourhino, it is far worst than that, he makes me feel indifferent. We lose to Sheffield Utd, and I should be furious, instead I find myself resigned and unsurprised.
    So please, pat Jose on the head and send him on his way, then hire someone who will make us Tottenham again. Someone who understand who we are, why signing Giroud & Willian from Chelsea is unacceptable, why a deal for Aaron Ramsey should never happen, why winning 4-3 is better than 1-0.
    Perhaps if we ask nicely Poch will come back!

  2. What a surprise!!!

    Levi should have consulted me before appointing Mourinho, how many times does a man need to tell you that his bank account is hungry?

    José lost the desire to coach and to manage when he left Inter Milan. It is a no brainer that he has become a liability and you can see that. Mourinho can only win things if you give him £500m, otherwise forget it. His tactics have become ancient even amateurs can work him out.. I think he should go back to TV, just…
