Some Tottenham Hotspur players believe that the team has regressed under the management of Jose Mourinho, per The Sun.
The report states that the former Chelsea boss is facing growing unrest in north London as players rebel against his training sessions and methods.
There is a claim that sessions focus on direct football and there is said to be a belief that the club are going backwards after the reign of Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked in November.
Prior to their clash with Norwich City on Wednesday, Spurs had not won since Boxing Day in the league.
A true test for any Spurs fan: Can you match these iconic images with the right results?
As a casual observer, one has to believe that the players deserve this.
They essentially downed tools while Pochettino was manager, allowing standards to slip and results to go against them. Their 1-1 draw with Sheffield United that saw the Argentine axed left Spurs 12th.
The sacking of the so-called “popular” manager directly led to the installation of a coach who has left scorched earth behind at every club he has been at.
Had the players enjoyed the sessions put on by Pochettino so much and felt that they were moving forward under his management, they should have fought to ensure he was not axed from his role.
Instead, they are now reaping what they have sowed; if this is true, then the playing staff only have themselves to blame.
Meanwhile, a key Spurs ace is closing in on a return from injury!
