Two Tottenham fans have already made petitions for Jose Mourinho to be sacked


Some football fans, hey?

It's been less than two days since Jose Mourinho took charge as Tottenham Hotspur manager and it seems you can't keep everybody happy.

Although Mauricio Pochettino's job appeared to be hanging in the balance before the international break, it still came as a surprise that the boss of five years was sacked on Tuesday night.

The tweets of '#PochOut' might have been growing with each game, but there was still thousands of supporters who thought the former Southampton coach needed more time.

Like it or not, though, Pochettino was sent packing and the arrival of Mourinho was bound to be controversial.

Controversy over Mourinho

Whereas the vision under Pochettino was very much with the future in mind, choosing Mourinho seems to be a more short-term approach at ending their 11-year trophy drought.

As optimistic as Daniel Levy might be, the evidence suggests that everything will come crumbling down for the 'Special One' during his third season at the very latest.

Consequently, many Spurs fans are debating whether taking on Mourinho is worth the FA Cup or League Cup it might bring, but also the player arguments and transfer disagreements.


Embarrassing petitions

But when the poor man has only spent two days in the job, you can only judge so much. That's what you'd think, anyway.

That's because two Tottenham fans have somewhat jumped the gun and feel so impassioned that Levy has made the wrong decision that they've taken the time to create petitions.

Since Mourinho's appointment, two petitions have emerged on titled: 'Bring back Pochettino' and 'Get rid of Jose' courtesy of Eva Barr and Holly Griib. 

The first one explains: "It is disgraceful that Pochettino has been sacked as a result of a poor season. Pochettino holds the club together. The players and fans love him. He is the heart of THFC."

'Bring back Pochettino'


'Get rid of Jose Mourinho'

Whereas the second simply put: "He shouldn't be here." Fair enough.


Jury out on Mourinho

However, the petitions haven't been very popular and any hopes of reaching Parliament with the necessary 100,000 backers look completely doomed with only 16 signatories.

But don't think that these petitions are complete nonsense, though, because '#MourinhoOut' was amusingly trending on Twiter before the Portuguese had even managed a game at Spurs.

It goes to show that Mourinho might actually be less popular than the man he's replacing for the first time in his career. Only time will tell how that works out for him.


Similarly, it will be interesting to see if these hitherto embarrassing petitions gather new levels of relevancy in the future and who knows, they might experience a spike in support.
