- Liverpool legend Jamie Redknapp has criticized Jose Mourinho's man-management style
- The former England international claims the Portuguese gaffer is fond of clashing with players
- Redknapp added that Mourinho is now banking on Gareth Bale and Dele Alli to save his face
Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Jose Mourinho has made it a habit of upsetting players at Tottenham including Gareth Bale and Dele Alli, Daily Mail.
Spurs were outclassed in their Premier League defeat to Man City at the Etihad as they are now 17 points adrift off the leaders.
Outcasts Bale and Alli were brought in the second half despite being previously criticized by their manager.
Alli who has been linked with a move to Paris Sanit-Germain made just his fifth appearance of the season as a substitute.
Mourinho once claimed that the England star was creating problems for his own team after Spurs' Carabao Cup win against Soke City.
On the other hand, the Portuguese gaffer recently criticized a social media post from Bale after leaving out the Welshman in most parts of the season.
And Redknapp believes the Special One is looking for a way out as he was quoted by Daily Mail:
"Spurs were passive throughout, Gundogan in such good form, numbers I did not think he would have, they are full of confidence. Lloris having a nightmare, the defence lacking confidence.
"Tottenham were outclassed, they are now 14 points behind City.
"When I see this Spurs, they are a shadow of that team earlier in the season, they are really struggling, he is trying to make others happy.
"Moussa Sissoko and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg were working for them, but now Mourinho is trying to please fans. He keeps making mistakes because he keeps changing back four. He has been treating Bale and Alli badly now wants them to bail him out. He is making a habit of upsetting people."
Tottenham have lost five of their last six games in all competitions, following FA Cup exit against Everton and the league loss to City.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has been left fuming by Gareth Bale's recent social media post following their 5th Round FA Cup defeat to Everton, Mirror.
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.
