Spurs fans have been reacting to some quotes from TalkSPORT’s Tony Cascarino regarding Jose Mourinho’s tactics in the 1-0 defeat to RB Leipzig in the Champions League. 

The North London club will travel to the Red Bull Arena with a first-leg deficit after Timo Werner’s penalty proved the difference on Wednesday night, and Mourinho’s tactics have since come under some serious criticism. The latest pundit to discuss the Portuguese manager’s tactics is TalkSPORT’s Tony Cascarino, who suggested that Julian Nagelsmann’s Leipzig side showed that Mourinho is being left behind.

He said (via The Spurs Web): “Jose offered very little in tactics yesterday. He’s been left behind.”

Mourinho has won trophies wherever he has gone in his career, but after being sacked by Manchester United in 2018, the world-renowned manager seems to have come under a lot of stick, and after Spurs’ latest defeat in the Champions League, it seems as if a lot of people, such as Cascarino, feel as if the 57-year-old is past his best.

Is Mourinho past his best?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Reaction from Spurs fans to Cascarino’s quotes on Mourinho can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans clearly don’t agree with Cascarino’s quotes on Mourinho and feel that the Portuguese manager would be doing a lot better if it wasn’t for the injuries to Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Moussa Sissoko.

What do we think?

Considering the problems (such as injuries) that Mourinho has had to deal with since taking charge at Spurs, it is difficult to criticise his achievements at this point. The North London club are still in the Champions League, FA Cup and are in the running for a top-four finish.
