Tottenham president Daniel Levy will keep manager Jose Mourinho in his post regardless of the outcome of this season, according to a report.
Mourinho had Spurs in a strong position in the first half of the season. The club were top of the Premier League before Christmas, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min crucial. But as the pair continued to score goals, Tottenham’s form slipped. As such, they now have to fight for the top four.
Moreover, their hopes for glory in the Europa League are over after a shock exit at Dinamo Zagreb.
So, SpursHopes of ending a 13-year drought for trophies rest on them as they beat Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final in April, although their opponents are the favorites.
As a result, the pressure mounted on Mourinho, who had to face appeals to get sacked.
Previous reports have described how Levy will assess the Portuguese tenure at the end of the season.
According to Football insider, however, Levy will give Mourinho another season regardless of how this campaign unfolds.
The president is worried about the manager’s dismissal, given that he still works largely with the team of his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino.
Mourinho has carved his own style into the team, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg proving a key signature.
However, Levy is concerned that the manager may not have had too many transfer windows to work in.
Therefore, he will support Mourinho with a “ major summer reconstruction ”, Football insider adds.
In fact, only a “ catastrophic ” end to the season would make Levy think twice, the report adds.
Mourinho’s transfer request rejected
According to a Spanish source Defensa Central, Mourinho has already started his preparation for the next transfer window.
Spurs have investigated youngster Miguel Gutierrez with Real Madrid, but Los Blancos have turned them down.
In fact, several other clubs have also been turned down for a player believed to have the ability to join Zinedine Zidane’s side.
