Tottenham Hotspur will make RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann their main target should they decide to part ways with manager José Mourinho.
Mourinho, whose return of 81 points from his first 50 games with Spurs is the lowest of all his clubs, is under increasing pressure at the club after overseeing a six-game losing streak in his last eight games in all. competitions.
The Spurs are believed to be prepared to give Mourinho until the end of the season to try and turn things around, and a large part of their logic behind that could stem from the fact that Nagelsmann isn’t ready to move mid-season.
The Telegraph They claim Spurs have their sights fixed on the RB Leipzig manager, who is believed to be open to a move to the Premier League at the end of the current campaign.
Spurs are hesitant to pull the trigger on Mourinho for now, but could end up making their final decision in the next 12 days, during which club officials expect positive results against Wolfsberger, Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace.
The club’s president, Daniel Levy, continues to support Mourinho, but according to Athletic, that feeling is not shared by many in the dressing room.
Various sources in the locker room are said to have confirmed that players are increasingly unhappy with Mourinho’s methods, the same methods he recently described as “the best in the world,” with several attacking players concerned about the overwhelming focus on defense.
Mourinho has done so little in attacking that players are still said to be appealing to the plays taught them by former boss Mauricio Pochettino, whose type of training several players now regret to complain about.
The sessions largely revolve around how to knock out their next opponent and not how to get past him, and it has left some players nervous about making mistakes. It is described as a ‘tactical overload’, and some on the team are bored by Mourinho’s focus on the minor details.
The mood in the locker room seems to be sour with each passing week, and now that results are also on a miserable decline, Mourinho has a lot of work to do if he wants to remain the Spurs head coach beyond this season. .
