Jose Mourinho should take duty for Tottenham’s struggles this season, contemplating Leicester are third within the Premier League with a weaker squad than Spurs.
That’s the view of former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy, who dismissed any suggestion that Mourinho’s squad isn’t adequate.
Tottenham are languishing in ninth place following 4 defeats of their final 5 league video games, the most recent of which got here at West Ham on Sunday.
Former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara defended Mourinho this morning and slammed the latest performances from his gamers – however Murphy disagrees.
He factors on the job Brendan Rodgers is doing at Leicester to focus on how Tottenham may very well be higher off with out Mourinho in cost.
“If you take a look at Leicester’s squad and Tottenham’s squad, there’s not an excessive amount of distinction,” Murphy mentioned.
“If something, you’ll argue that Tottenham have higher gamers, particularly in attacking areas.
“Would Son get in Leicester’s workforce? I feel so. We’re two groups who’re fairly degree when it comes to squads.
“I feel one other coach may get extra out of Tottenham and get them in an identical place to Leicester.”
In the meantime, Murphy was eager to emphasis that many Tottenham gamers have gone backwards beneath Mourinho.
The likes of Harry Winks, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko all began the 2019 Champions League closing beneath Mauricio Pochettino, now they will’t get within the beginning XI.
“Most soccer followers are real looking, there was a little bit of speak earlier within the season about Tottenham successful the title, however that was by no means going to occur,” Murphy added.
“If you take a look at the squad, Christian Eriksen left and perhaps they might’ve accomplished extra to maintain him.
“He’s one they’ve missed. Rose has hardly obtained a sport, he’s a high-quality worldwide left-back. Alderweireld is the perfect centre-back they’ve obtained and he doesn’t play.
“Winks, Sissoko and Alli all performed within the Champions League closing, none of them are getting any sport time.
“That’s the place the questions rise: is he getting sufficient out of his gamers? The reply isn’t any.”
