Report explains why Mourinho’s relationship with Levy has become strained


According to a report in The Times, Jose Mourinho’s relationship with Daniel Levy has become strained over recent months.

Mourinho has come under a lot of pressure after Tottenham crashed out of the Europa League with an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday.

The Daily Mail report that the Tottenham boss is now likely to lose his job at the end of the season unless the North Londoners finish in the top four.

The Times claim that while Mourinho’s relationship with Levy was previously strong, there have been some issues between the pair over recent months.

It is said that Mourinho wanted to offload Dele Alli and some other fringe players in January and was displeased that it did not happen.

The report claims that the failed exit of the England international has “added to the strain on the relationship” between Mourinho and the Spurs chairman.

It is also suggested that winning the Carabao Cup would not be enough to keep Mourinho at Spurs next season and it will be Tottenham’s league position that will determine the 58-year-old’s future.

Levy has shown over the past two decades that he can be pretty ruthless in his decision to sack managers. Missing out on Champions League football for the second year in a row would be disastrous for the club financially and I cannot see Jose being at the club next season if that comes to pass.
