Mourinho: “We have problems that I can’t solve”

The fact that Tottenham still somehow reaches fourth place becomes difficult, says José Mourinho. And shuffles the blame for the Spurs crisis.

Right there, on the lawn of London Stadium, it had started in November 2019. José Mourinho’s tenure as manager of Tottenham Hotspur. And that’s exactly where the “Special One” stood on Sunday afternoon after 1-2 at West Ham United and tried to circumvent the fact that nothing has actually happened to the Spurs in the past 15 months. So little good.

This young and hungry team, which she had been under Mauricio Pochettino for a long time, now seems mostly unplanned and sluggish. Mourinho’s destructive approach had meanwhile led to number one and a 6-1 position at Manchester United. The Spurs are even in the league cup finals, but will have to deal with Manchester City.In the league, things are only going as they were in November 2019. Slightly bad. After four defeats from the last five games, nine points are missing in Champions League place four. “I wouldn’t speak of a crisis,” Mourinho said on Sunday, shrugging as usual. “I would call it a very, very bad run. That’s obvious. We lose too many games.”
