Jose Mourinho’s position at Tottenham remains ‘safe’ despite a ‘growing discontent’ from supporters over the club’s performances and style of play.
Spurs began the season brightly and were top of the Premier League in December before a stuttering run of form, their concerning recent results including three consecutive league defeats before a win over West Brom last weekend.
Mourinho’s side are currently eighth in the division and four points adrift of the Champions League places ahead of tomorrow evening’s trip to Manchester City, whilst the north London side crashed out of the FA Cup in midweek following a thrilling 5-4 defeat at Everton.
According to the Mirror, there is a ‘growing discontent’ from the club’s supporters who are dissatisfied with both results and performances but Mourinho’s position remains safe with Spurs still in contention for silverware this season.
Spurs are through to the Carabao Cup final and will face Manchester City at Wembley in April, whilst the north Londoner’s Europa League campaign will resume this month with a double-header against Austrian side Wolfsberg.
Mourinho’s appointment was designed to end Spurs’ 13-year wait for a major trophy and he will be given time to win silverware, though there remains unrest regarding his pragmatic style and treatment of several leading players.
Gareth Bale’s return on loan from Real Madrid has failed to work out as hoped and Dele Alli remains a peripheral figure under the Portuguese, whilst the likes of Harry Winks and Matt Doherty have struggled under Mourinho’s regime.
Spurs will hope for signs of clear improvement ahead of a crucial stage of the campaign and a run of strong results could help lift the negative atmosphere currently surrounding the north London side.
