According to a report by The Daily Express, Daniel Levy has sympathy for Jose Mourinho as Tottenham continue to struggle to get results.
Spurs have been on a downward spiral for the last two months, with the defeat away at West Ham making it just 12 points from their last 12 Premier League games.
Pressure has continued to mount on Mourinho, with names including RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann and Southampton’s Ralph Hasenhuttl being linked with the Spurs job over the last week (Ask Ornstein Podcast).
However, it has been suggested that Mourinho is not under any immediate danger of being sacked as the Spurs boss still retains Levy’s support.
ESPN have claimed that the Portuguese coach has the sympathy of Spurs officials who believe that the injury to Harry Kane came at a bad time for the club.
It is said that Levy is not likely to look to replace Mourinho, partly also because it would cost the club around £30m to part ways with the 58-year-old, who does not have a break clause in his contract which runs until the summer of 2023.
Spurs Web Opinion
There is no doubt that we need to stop our downward slide immediately as things are continuing to get from bad to worse on the pitch. However, I still believe that Mourinho can turn things around and we can end up having a strong finish to the season. A couple of results can make a major difference in a topsy-turvy campaign like this one and the sooner we get back to winning ways the better.
