- Jose Mourinho saw his Tottenham team lose three straight games in the Premier League
- Spurs bounced back with the return of Harry Kane as they defeated West Brom
- Reports from the club claims there are growing concerns over the future of the manager
Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho is definitely having a tough time at Tottenham following their three straight defeats which oversaw a nine-year low, Mirror reports.
The former Manchester United was employed by the Spurs management to help them win trophies and ensure they qualify for the Champions League.
Mourinho failed on both tasks in his first season and his second seems to be going the same way as they are four points below the top four.
Tottenham have also crashed out of this season's FA Cup which means they can only rely on their Carabao Cup final as well as Europa League as their chances to win silverware.
It was gathered that a handful of club supporters are already fed up with the tactician’s style of football and Jose is lucky they are not in the stands otherwise it might have turned toxic by now.
Top chiefs at the White Hart Lane are also said to be worried about the manager after they lost three straight games, and it would have been worse had they not beaten West Brom.
But defeat at Everton in the FA Cup has put the spotlight back on a manager going through a turbulent season of highs and lows - but the lows are definitely outweighing the highs right now.
He was left fuming with Gareth Bale's recent social media post following their 5th Round FA Cup defeat to Everton.
Spurs were knocked out of the competition in a thrilling 5-4 scoreline at Goodison Park in midweek.
And Bale was not listed in the squad for the encounter likewise their previous clash with West Brom in the past weekend.
With Mourinho, there is so often a trade-off. He has delivered trophies at every club he has managed but his pragmatic, safety-first football is hardly in the best traditions of Tottenham whose proud motto is “to dare is to do.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea have qualified into the FA Cup quarter-finals following a 1-0 win over Championship club Barnsley at the Oakwell Stadium.
Tammy Abraham got the only goal of the match as the Blues sailed into the last eight of the oldest cup competition.
