According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham Hotspur are considering former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho as a replacement for Mauricio Pochettino.

REPORT: Tottenham Considering Jose Mourinho As Mauricio Pochettino Replacement

Quest For A New Manager Begins

The quest for a new manager at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has begun. They are now looking for a new manager after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino, who has left after more than five-and-a-half-years at the club.

The Argentinian has departed Tottenham after a string of poor results. They currently lie in 14th place in the Premier League, with just three wins from 12 games. His final game with the club was a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.

Jose Mourinho The Most Likely To Replace Mauricio Pochettino At Tottenham

Jose Mourinho is one of the most prestigious names now circulating the rumour mill for the Spurs job. According to Fabrizio Romano, the former Chelsea manager would be open to discussions.

The Portuguese manager has had a successful career so far as a manager. As a result, he would certainly improve Tottenham’s current form.

The 56-year-old has been without a job since leaving Manchester United in December 2018. However, he was successful with the club, winning three trophies at Old Trafford. It continued his record of winning a trophy with every club that he has managed.

However, a sticking point for Mourinho could be that he used to manage Tottenham’s rivals Chelsea. It is arguably his most famous – and successful – stint as a manager. He won eight trophies across two spells at Stamford Bridge, including back-to-back Premier League titles during his first stint.

Another issue that may hamper Mourinho’s chance at Tottenham is that he is not a long-term option. The 56-year-old has never lasted more than three seasons at any club he has been at. As a result, Tottenham may not view that as a positive choice.

  1. DO NOT bring in this man Mourinho to my club you are insulting the fans if you do.
    I have stood by Mr Levy until now but this is the last straw, and talk of this man managing the club is a bad joke. Poch will end up managing one of the bigest clubs in the world and we will think what might have been.
