Spurs image perfectly epitomises Mourinho’s biggest flaw

Tottenham Hotspur were dumped out of the Champions League after they were resoundingly beaten on Tuesday evening.

It only compounds more woe on Jose Mourinho as his side have exited all cup competitions and now only have the Premier League to play for, where they currently sit seven points behind the top four.

But the Portuguese boss has done himself no favours, which has been encapsulated by the following image…

It depicts Spurs’ downfall perfectly – the back four are completely bunched up inside the penalty area and aren’t quick to close down the five Leipzig players that had surrounded the box.

There’s also no sign of the midfield or any support from further up the pitch.

Is Mourinho the right man for Spurs?

Yes, needs time!

No, get rid!

No, get rid!

Mourinho’s current system has allowed this to happen. His teams are left wide open with gaps for the opposition to exploit, and that’s exactly what the Bundesliga outfit did last night.

Such a big flaw is perhaps a shock to some, considering the 57-year-old is always been regarded as the ‘1-0’ manager who can grind out results through astute defensive-minded tactics.

There have been an array of comments in the past that suggest Mourinho ‘parks the bus’ whilst also being accused of being dull and negative.
