Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is the favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave their club.
Spurs form has been faltering since early December, as following their 2-0 victory over Arsenal on 2nd December which left them at the top of the table, they have since gone on a run that has seen them win just three times in their last 11 league matches. As a result of this poor form, they currently sit in ninth place in the table, six points off the top four with a whole host of clubs in front of them in the standings.
The minimum expectations from Tottenham fans after last season’s poor showing which saw Mourinho replace fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino following the Argentinian’s poor start to the season would’ve been to see their side qualify for the Champions League, preferably via the league as their squad is of good quality and contains world-class players such as Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.
At present, it looks as though Mourinho may end up targeting the same objectives as he did when he was in charge of Manchester United in 2016/17, which was the League Cup and Europa League, having guided Spurs to the Carabao Cup final at Wembley this April where they face Manchester City. The latter of the two competitions initially mentioned would be a high-risk strategy, as he is essentially relying on a team that hasn’t got any serial winners in it to bring back a major European trophy.
