Mauricio Pochettino is arguably under more pressure currently than any moment in his managerial career so far.
This is certainly the most difficult spell the 47-year-old has experienced during his five and a half years at Tottenham.
Spurs have looked all over the place defensively in recent matches and there are reports of a lack of trust between the Argentine and some members of the squad, with some players feeling overworked (the Athletic).
Reports over recent days have suggested that former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is keen on taking over at Tottenham should Pochettino be sacked (Daily Mail).
The Portuguese recently turned down an offer to take over the managerial reigns at Lyon and the club’s president, Jean-Michel Aulas has insisted that it was because Mourinho had already decided on his next destination (Get French Football News).
This has led to much speculation on social media over Mourinho’s next club will be, with Spurs and Everton seemingly the most likely destinations.
While Some Spurs fans welcomed the link with the former Man Utd and Chelsea boss, others insisted that it would be a terrible move and that Pochettino deserved to be given more time.

Spurs have been all but unwatchable the past few weeks. Bring in Mourinho and I literally may have stop watching. The only thing I like about Mourinho is beating him or seeing him go off in press conferences. His style of football is crap and he poisoned United and Chelsea.

Spurs Web Opinion
I don’t believe Tottenham is the club that Aulas is referring to as I simply don’t see Levy sacking Pochettino just yet. However, if the Argentine fails to turn things around in the next few games, then perhaps Levy will be tempted to make a change. I believe even if Spurs were considering alternatives, Mourinho would not be the right way to go.
