Jose Mourinho’s future at Spurs has been called into question following a run of poor results and a series of outbursts against his own players.
The Portuguese saw his side lose yet more ground on the top four this weekend after throwing away a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at home to his former club Manchester United.
Tottenham could appoint Maurizio Sarri should they part with Jose Mourinho this summer
And now, according to Rai Sports, the powers that be are already looking to possible replacements, with Sarri high on that list.
The Italian television channel, as per Sport Witness, reports that the north London club are looking at the former Chelsea boss and would ‘like him to replace Jose Mourinho’.
Sarri is without a club having parted company with Juventus last summer, despite leading the Turin side to the Scudetto – their ninth title in succession.
It is similar to the way he left Chelsea the previous season, parting company despite lifting the Europa League trophy and delivering a Champions League finish.
The Portuguese has appeared exasperated with recent outbursts against his own players
Mourinho is currently under heavy scrutiny following a tenth defeat of the season in the Premier League.
The 58-year-old hit out at his own players after they failed to hold on to their 2-1 advantage against Newcastle on April 4, claiming it was a case of ‘same coach, different players’ when asked why his side were failing to see out games – something that was recognised as a specialty of Mourinho’s during his time at Chelsea.
Spurs are currently sat seventh in the table, six points behind West Ham in fourth – the final Champions League spot.
