How missing out on Europe could save Spurs big money in Mourinho sacking/Spurs stars ‘fed up’ with manager’s blame game

How missing out on Europe could save Spurs big money in Mourinho sacking/Spurs stars ‘fed up’ with manager’s blame game

 

A pair of interesting updates surrounding Jose Mourinho’s future at Tottenham have come to the fore online on Monday.

Kane’s brace not enough

The topic of Mourinho’s future has of course come back to the fore in a major way over the last 24 hours.

This comes on the back of the fallout stemming from yet another concerning Spurs result.

The north Londoners made the trip to St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon, desperate for all 3 points, in the knowledge that a positive result would have guided them above Chelsea and into the Premier League’s top-4.

When all was said and done on Tyneside, however, the visitors fell short, in another blow to their chances of clinching Champions League football for next season.

After Harry Kane cancelled out Joelinton’s early opener with a quickfire brace, Tottenham appeared to have regathered control of the clash:

As has proven the case on so many occasions to this point in the season, though, the Lilywhites eventually failed to hold onto their advantage when it mattered most.

Five minutes from time, Newcastle were rewarded for a concerted spell of pressure, when Arsenal loanee Joe Willock lashed home off the underside of the crossbar, to secure a share of the spoils:

Mou latest

The concerning developments from a Spurs perspective, however, did not end with Sunday’s result.

In the aftermath of the clash, Jose Mourinho was first heavily criticised for essentially throwing his players under the bus:

This, in turn, was swiftly followed by further controversy, when it was reported that the Portuguese had caused ‘confusion’ amongst the Tottenham hierarchy, after falsely claiming that Toby Alderweireld was omitted from his matchday squad to face Newcastle having returned late from international duty.

And, as outlined above, if the latest word stemming from the media on Monday is to be believed, then the fallout from yesterday’s chain of events has since only continued.

As per the reliable Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph, Spurs’ stars are becoming increasingly ‘fed up’ with their boss’ insistence on targeting them on the back of disappointing results.

This comes with many said to have been angered by the aforementioned ‘same coach, different players’ comment.

In turn, suggestions have quickly begun to mount once more that Mourinho could be headed towards the exit door in north London.

The major issue when it comes to such an avenue, however, comes in the form of the hefty payout which would be required on the part of Daniel Levy and co.

It was suggested earlier this year that Mourinho would be owed over £30 million, if relieved of his duties by the Lilywhites.

But, as per yet another report to have come to the fore online on Monday, such a significant sum may in fact not be required, if Tottenham’s woes continue over the course of the season’s run-in.

As per Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail, if the Portuguese fails to guide his side to European qualification via Premier League position, Mourinho will not be entitled to anywhere close to £30 million.

This comes due to performance-related clauses in the former Chelsea boss’ contract, based around guaranteeing Tottenham European football.
