Tottenham fans want Jose Mourinho to be sacked.
Many of them were unhappy about the style of football played under the Portuguese this season, although a recent sequence of seven wins in all competitions papered over the cracks for a while.
However, things have since nosedived.
They lost the North London, with the team’s negativity a major factor in their defeat, only really attacking Arsenal in the last 15 minutes, by which time they were a goal and a man down.
And then came the humiliation of their exit to Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League in Croatia on Thursday night, despite holding a two goal advantage from the first leg.
After the match, Mourinho was not slow to blame his players, accusing them of lacking application and heart.
That was the last straw for many Spurs fans, but the problem that the club faces are that it would cost £25 million to pay up his remaining two years of his contract. And the club’s finances are already strained because of the cost of their new stadium, with the Covid pandemic adding to the problem.
Spurs win at Villa Park on Sunday evening means the decision can be delayed fora while yet.
