'Mou has taken Spurs backwards'

English Premier League

Jose Mourinho has been accused of taking Tottenham Hotspur 'backwards' as the two-time UEFA Champions League winner endures his longest winless run.

Tottenham were dumped out of the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League this week by RB Leipzig which coincides with Mourinho's worst run of results over his glittering career.

Without a win in six matches, the three-time Premier League-winning coach has been accused of worsening the club since his arrival in November 2019.

"It is worrying, worrying times for Spurs – now eighth in the Premier League," former Chelsea striker, Chris Sutton, said as per the Express.

"They’ve gone backwards under Mourinho, he’s getting his excuses out now."

Sutton is of the belief that if his predecessor, Mauricio Pochettino, had still been in charge, the club would be in better shape.

"Would they have performed like this under Pochettino? I’m not sure they would have."

"Dele Alli’s comments about the mentality were extraordinary and it speaks volumes. He will want Levy to spend a fortune in the summer. He’s a misery." 

The 2019/20 Champions League finalists currently languish in eighth place in the English top-flight, seven points off fourth-place Chelsea.
