Speaking on a recent video posted on his YouTube channel, Alasdair Gold discussed Jose Mourinho’s future as Tottenham Hotspur manager.

Following a magnificent start to the Premier League season, in which Spurs lost just one of their opening 12 league fixtures, Mourinho’s side have now picked up just two wins over their last nine top-flight matches.

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

Their latest defeat, a 1-0 loss to 17th-placed Brighton & Hove Albion, saw Tottenham lack any real attacking momentum in the match, mustering just four shots on target and creating no big chances.

This has led to criticism of Mourinho’s ‘lifeless‘ style of play, as well as throwing various spats the 58-year-old has had with a number of Tottenham players into the spotlight.

However, speaking on a recent video on his YouTube channel, Gold stated that it is his understanding that Mourinho still has the full backing of Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy.

He said: “As I understand it, Daniel Levy still retains full faith in Mourinho. What we’ve got to understand is, Daniel Levy has wanted Mourinho for years. I think he first tried to get him at Porto when he was there [before] he ended up going to Chelsea. Daniel Levy has not put his neck on the line, that’s too much to say, but he’s certainly invested a lot into getting Mourinho to the club. So he’s not likely to just ditch him after just over a year or so.”

TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments regarding Jose Mourinho’s future…

It would appear that, despite Tottenham’s poor run of late, Mourinho retains the full backing of Levy, as the chairman has wanted to appoint the Portuguese manager at Spurs for a number of years.

In addition to this, sacking Mourinho two and a half years prior to the end of his £15 million-per-year contract would be an extremely expensive decision for Tottenham to make, as well as the fact that at present, Mourinho’s side are still fighting for silverware in the Carabao Cup, FA Cup, Europa League and, technically, the Premier League.

So, all things considered, it is not difficult to imagine – bar a monumental bust-up or a catastrophic run of form – Mourinho remaining Tottenham boss for a little while longer yet.
