According to a report from The Athletic, Daniel Levy is unlikely to sack Jose Mourinho in the middle of the season despite the club’s poor results of late.
Tottenham started the season extremely well and were sitting at the top of the table until the start of December.
Although the North Londoners’ style of play did not fit in with the club’s attacking ethos, fans were quite forgiving of the approach since it was delivering results on the pitch.
Jurgen Klopp even described Spurs as a ‘results machine’ ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Anfield in December.
However, things have gone downhill since then, with the Lilywhites dropping down to ninth place in the table.
Given the club’s poor run of form, fans and pundits seem less forgiving of Mourinho’s pragmatic approach.
However, The Athletic have claimed that Levy brought Mourinho to Spurs to win silverware and help the club to compete with the elite and the Spurs chairman is unlikely to turn his back on the project at the moment.
It is suggested that Levy will not take any disruptive action in the middle of the campaign, especially with Tottenham still alive in all three cup competitions.

The team looks devoid of ideas in attack at the moment and Mourinho certainly deserves to be criticised for that. However, it is still way too early for anyone to be calling for his head, especially given the crazy nature of the season.
If we finish in the top four and win a cup this season, it will be a successful campaign. However, the bigger the gap gets between us and the top four, the more the pressure will build on Mourinho.
I believe that Levy could make a drastic call if he feels that Champions League football is starting to slip out of Tottenham’s reach.
