Tottenham fan tells radio show that Jose Mourinho should be sacked after Man Utd loss

Tottenham Hotspur v Olympiacos FC: Group B - UEFA Champions League

Jose Mourinho has suffered his first defeat as Tottenham Hotspur manager.

Despite opening with wins over West Ham United, Olympiacos and Bournemouth, there had been signs of defensive frailties - they conceded twice in each game - to cause concerns.

However, few people expected Spurs to lose to a Manchester United side that had limped to a 2-2 draw with newly-promoted Aston Villa and had only won four leagues game all season.

But this is football we're talking about and there was a surprise in store as Marcus Rashford scored either side of Dele Alli's equaliser to claim all three points for the Red Devils.

After so few games, though, you can understand why most Spurs fans weren't particularly angry with the result and especially when you consider it in the wider context of the season.

Spurs fan wants Mourinho sacked

However, we used the word 'most' for a reason, because it seems there was a small minority of supporters who were absolutely seething about the performance at Old Trafford.

Enter Spurs fan 'Jack'. In a remarkable live call to talkSPORT radio, he informed presenter Andy Goldstein that he wanted Mourinho - who he branded 'useless' - to be sacked. Yes, seriously.

"I want Jose Mourinho out of my club," Jack proclaimed down the phone. "It's not about whether he does a good job or not, he's not the right manager for Tottenham. It's a marriage of convenience.

'I'd take Eddie Howe in a heartbeat'

"He doesn't buy into what Tottenham is and we aren't about what Jose Mourinho is. He never should have been appointed in the first place. I think he'll be gone within 12 months.

"I guarantee you this will be the one job he takes where he doesn't win a trophy. I guarantee you. Mourinho's track record is superb, but he's not the right manager for Tottenham."

"I would've taken the young lad at RB Leipzig [Julian Nagelsmann] or Eddie Howe in a heartbeat."


GIVEMESPORT's Kobe Tong says

Sigh. Look, like it or not, Mourinho is the Tottenham manager. I know, shock horror.

There are plenty of Spurs fans who were sceptical when the Portuguese arrived, but calling into radio stations with a series of complaints after four games certainly won't help the situation.

Every fan is entitled to their opinion, but there must be an acceptance that Mourinho will at least be manager until the end of the season even in a worst-case scenario.


We're talking about one of the best managers in history here and there's enough reason to suggest he's learnt from his United spell to believe that he'll bring success to north London.

At the end of the day, Tottenham fans were crying out for trophies and Mourinho wins them in his sleep. One defeat in four games is absolutely nothing to suggest otherwise.
