Daniel Levy will give Jose Mourinho time to turn things around at Tottenham but has been surprised by the team’s recent performances, according to the Independent.
Spurs fell to a third successive Premier League defeat on Thursday night, losing 1-0 at home to Chelsea after falling to Brighton and Liverpool – scoring just one goal across those three games.
The results have been poor but the performances have been worse, and most of the criticism has been aimed at Mourinho’s style of play. Tottenham have looked uninterested and have completely lacked a goal threat without the injured Harry Kane.
But the Independent claims Mourinho will be given time to get back on track, though pressure is said to be growing on the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss.
Levy has apparently been ‘struck by the utter poverty of the football’ in recent matches, something that will become more difficult to be patient with if results don’t improve fast.
It’s a big week for Mourinho. West Brom on Sunday, Everton in the FA Cup next week, then a trip to Manchester City – if Spurs don’t pick up a single victory, all eyes will be on Levy.
