Daniel Levy suggests that Jose Mourinho’s stay at Tottenham could be a short one. The North London side have been in good form since the Portuguese’s appointment.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham established themselves as a top side in England. Unfortunately, their poor form this season put an end to his five and a half year stay at the club. More shockingly, he was replaced with Jose Mourinho.
Despite the improved performances under the Premier League winning manager, a section of the fans is worried that he may affect the stability of the club that Pochettino helped achieve. However, Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has a different opinion. He believes that the era of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger is long gone and bringing in managers for the short term was not a problem at all.

“It is hard managing a club,” Daniel Levy told the Evening Standard.
“The pressure these managers are under is immense. There aren’t many managers that manage a club for five years. [The longevity of Sir] Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger is very, very, very unusual.
“When they first started, the League wasn’t where it is today. It is so competitive and intense. I think it is very unlikely you are going to see a repeat of that. The Ferguson and Wenger eras are in the past.
“We are obsessed in this country with the longevity of the so-called ‘manager’, in Europe it is normal every two years to get someone else. It isn’t personal. They don’t even sign five-year contracts. They sign for two years and then another coach comes in.
“Mauricio and Jose are great coaches. They are different, they have different styles and Mauricio took us a long way.
“He did an amazing job and I’m sure that Jose will do equally an amazing job in a different way.”
It is hard to say which of the approach is better. However, if Mourinho can bring silverware at the Club during his stint, he will endear himself to Tottenham fans, many of whom have already had a change of heart after initially opposing his appointment.
