Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been sharing some insight into Jose Mourinho’s current situation at the north London club amidst rumours of his job being in doubt. 

This comes after Gold recently uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel where he spoke about a number of topics concerning the Lilywhites.

A nice easy one to start off with, who is Tottenham's record signing?

On the subject of Mourinho and his current situation at the club, Gold had this to say on the matter. (36.11) (36.57)

He said: “[Daniel] Levy will give Mourinho time to try and turn things around. People saying he’s lost the dressing room is rubbish. He hasn’t, you can see that the players are playing to try and win matches for him. They are.

“You saw that [against West Ham]. [In the] second half, Spurs, they were throwing everything. There’s no indication that players aren’t playing for Mourinho.

“On the whole, I do think the players are playing for him. I don’t think you can look at it and feel that he’s lost the dressing room or anything like that. I don’t think that’s the case and I think when that happens, or you see that players are starting to be really disgruntled I think that’s when management and chairman and they go to the chairman, I’ve said this before, Harry Kane is all-powerful at Tottenham Hotspur. He really is such a dominant figure.

“I feel that if Kane was making noises about Mourinho not being the man for the job, I think you’d soon see things spiralling and I don’t think that’s the case.”

Spurs hired Mourinho as their manager back in November 2019 after getting rid of previous head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Since then, Mourinho has taken charge of 75 games for the club in which they have won 39, drawn 15 and lost 21 along the way (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments on Mourinho…

Given how Mourinho has guided his side to ninth place in the Premier League table at this moment in time, winning 10 out of a possible 24 games, it’s easy to see why his job has been called into question recently.

Do you think Mourinho will lose the dressing room at Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, it’s reassuring to hear, in our view, that the 58-year-old has not lost the dressing room at Spurs.

Moving forward, Mourinho will need to keep his squad focused and together to try and pick up some positive results from now until the end of the season.
