Tottenham Hotspur noticed a significant uptick in results and performances when Jose Mourinho first took over from the sacked Mauricio Pochettino last year.

Between November and December, Spurs were in free-flowing form with plenty of goals and resurgences from players such as Dele Alli.

However, as injuries piled up and the time ticked on, Spurs began to find it tricky to keep up their momentum into the new decade.

Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, and Moussa Sissoko were big losses for Mourinho and the club have been back in freefall ever since.

They have now been knocked out of the FA Cup and Champions League in the space of a couple of weeks, leaving only the faint hopes of a top-four finish to play for.

The Express have now drafted a three-man shortlist of managers who could theoretically take over if Mourinho was sacked in the near future.

They name RB Leipzig manager, Julian Nagelsmann, Wolves boss, Nunon Espirito Santo, and Getafe manager, Pepe Bordalas.

Spurs Web Opinion:

We would like to throw a certain Mr Mauricio Pochettino into the mix too!

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Could you ever imagine Poch’ being welcomed back with pen arms and in practically no time all? That would involve Dan Levy reeling back his I’m the big boss ego, admitting he was wrong in the first place or simply being removed as chairman (due to his own multitude of errors and shortcomings). All of this is hypothetical of course as it looks lke Levy has a choke hold on the running of THFC, and sadly I don’t see Mauricio returning either in the short or long term given the way he was dismissed against all he had achieved! I also think Jose will be given a full season or so place his mark on the club, and the reality is it wouldn’t really be fair to him not too! Whether Mourinho can truly change things around therefore remains a relative question, but if the chairman continues to operate in full ‘Ebeneezer’ mode, then all parties concerned – including the fans – may well continue to suffer as a result!

    • I agree with you, although I think Poch should have gone in the Summer following his comments about leaving if we won the Champions League final. All his talk was about staying at Spurs his entire career and building an unbeatable team yet in the next breath he’s on about leaving and coming out with all sorts of weird comments, showing his distinct lack of loyalty to the club.
      It’s sad he has gone yet I think he lost the team moral by what he was saying and it showed long before José turned up.

      José is the anti Poch and was the last option Spurs should have brought in ?
