Former Crystal Palace forward Clinton Morrison has claimed that Jose Mourinho’s poor man-management skills are to blame for Tottenham’s recent struggles.
Morrison questioned how the Spurs players would have felt going into the RB Leipzig tie hearing Mourinho constantly complain about the injuries to the squad.
He also questioned the Portuguese’s decision to criticise Tanguy Ndombele to the media after the 1-1 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor last week.
Despite being critical of the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss, Morrison insisted that the club should back him in the summer and give him next season to turn the team’s fortunes around.
Watch what the former Republic of Ireland forward told talkSPORT:
"You don't publicly crucify any of your players." ❌
"Eventually, he will lose the dressing room." 👎
"When he says 'I don't think we'll get anything from this game,' how am I feeling as a player?" @MorrisonClinton questions Jose Mourinho's man management. ⚪️

Spurs Web Opinion
Many fans have already pointed out how Pochettino was always positive in his press conferences even when key players were injured while Mourinho never misses an opportunity to complain. I don’t think that comparison is particularly fair as Pochettino didn’t have to deal with anything close to the scale of injury problems that Mourinho has in his first few months at the club.
