Tottenham Hotspur are underperforming so far this season, with just three wins from eleven games and the pressure is mounting on Pochettino and his squad.

With many players having been in the regular starting XI for a number of years now and the likes of Eriksen, Alderweireld, and Vertonghen seeing their contracts run out in the summer, the squad is starting to seem stale.

However, Etienne Fermie from The Sun has now claimed that Spurs could build a formidable team under Jose Mourinho if they choose to change manager and bring in some new signings.

This comes after SoccerLink reported this week that Tottenham have already made contact with Jose in case they do need a new gaffer in the near future.

The Sun article names Bruno Fernandes, Paulo Dybala, and Youcef Atal as players Mourinho could look to bring in if he was given the job.

The posed starting XI also includes new signings Ryan Sessegnon, Tanguy Ndombele, and Giovani Lo Celso in a new-look Tottenham team.

The starting XI named by the Sun is as follows:

Hugo Lloris;

Ryan Sessegnon, Juan Foyth, Davinson Sanchez, Youcef Atal;

Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso;

Heung Min Son, Bruno Fernandes, Paulo Dybala;

Harry Kane

Spurs Web Opinion:

While I cannot argue with this team (apart from the absence of Harry Winks), I don’t see why Spurs can’t achieve the same or a similar XI with Pochettino still at the helm. I do not believe that the manager is the problem, he simply needs funding and support to rejuvenate the squad.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Amazing that these 3 are the very same 3 Pochettino has been linked, with and indeed Spurs negotiated on during the last window. We do not want Mourinho, he is divisive and yesterdays man.
