There is no doubt that Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur are experiencing tough times at the moment, having lost six of their last eight games.
Currently sitting ninth in the Premier League, nine points off a Champions League spot, the Portuguese coach is feeling the pressure.
According to the Daily Mail, it seems that Mourinho has just four games to turn things around if he wants to keep his job as Tottenham manager.
The four matches in which Mourinho has to turn things around are the second leg of the Europa League last-32 tie with Wolfsberger AC, a match that should be fairly straightforward given Tottenham’s first-leg lead of 4-1, and matches against Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Despite the recent poor results, Mourinho was a little prickly when questioned about the current state of the team.
“I don’t know what you mean by crisis. If the crisis is frustration and sadness in the dressing room, nobody is happy.”
“When a team fights like we did until the last second to try and get a different result, it is never a group in crisis.” Nagelsmann favourite to take over.
The Telegraph, on the other hand, have already pointed out potential replacements for Mourinho.
The sought-after RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann is said to be in pole position to take over from Mourinho should the Portuguese coach fail to turn things around at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
