The club’s players are said to be growing increasingly bereaved with their manager
On his longest winless run since joining Tottenham, Jose Mourinho is well and truly under fire at the moment. Bereft of a win in seven successive matches, a run which includes three defeats on the spin, Mourinho is said to be clutching at straws to save his job at the club.
Mourinho’s Methods Being Rejected By Players
Its not only the supremos of the club who are said to be growing dismayed with the side’s faltering form but the players themselves as well. As per a report in The Athletic, a set of players at Tottenham have gone onto express their discontent at the methods being deployed by Mourinho.
The report in the outlet claims that there are three main concerns with Mourinho, his training sessions; that they are too defensive, too focused on the opposition and not as intense as they were under his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino.
The players are also said to be “bored and frustrated” with manager’s approach to pre-match preparations.
One situation in particular has been talked about to outline why the players are so beleaguered. It came during the side’s defeat to Liverpool when Mourinho focused on how to defend throw-ins, a decision which left the club’s players flummoxed.
Mourinho meanwhile was defiant and at his petulant best ensuing Tottenham’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham at the weekend. The club’s manager refused to pin the blame on himself for the defeat as he claimed he had the best coaching methods in the world.
“Because sometimes the results are the consequence of multiple situations in football and mine and my coaching staff’s methods are second to nobody in the world,” Mourinho said following the match.
Levy Growing Discontent With Mourinho
The club’s head honcho, Daniel Levy is also said to be running out of patience with Mourinho. Although the manager could end up being offered till the end of the season to rekindle the club’s form, a string of reports have suggested that Levy is ready to wield the axe if things don’t sway in the club’s favour at the earliest plausible.
