Clinton Morrison attacks Spurs manager for key decision

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has come under fire from former Premier League striker and Spurs fan Clinton Morrison on talkSPORT this week.

What’s he said?

The north London side crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening, meaning their sole now turns to the Premier League where they are some seven points off the top four.

Mourinho made a surprising remark post-game suggesting that RB Leipzig’s entire bench would get into his starting lineup, which is why Morrison slammed his man-management skills on the radiowaves.

He pondered how the likes of Lucas Moura and Dele Alli would feel knowing that and also referenced previous comments slamming club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele.

Morrison said:

“You don’t come out and publicly crucify any of your players, it’s not good enough. He did it at Chelsea, he did it at Man Utd and eventually, he will lose the dressing room [at Spurs] because players are bigger now. I believe players are bigger than football clubs, in that dressing room they are tight-knit together.”

Crisis point

Spurs’ season is surpassing boiling point now as any chance of silverware is dead in the dust following Tuesday night’s emphatic defeat.

In fact, the Bundesliga outfit were resounding winners across two legs, notching up a 4-0 victory on aggregate, which only goes to show the level of work Mourinho has to do at the club.

Money talks: How much did Levy pay for each of these Spurs stars?

How much did Spurs pay to sign Hugo Lloris?

There’s a strong possibility that the side will not be back in the Champions League for the foreseeable future, so the 57-year-old will need to build a squad in the summer – on an even more reduced budget – that can contend to achieve that accolade once again.

Daniel Levy is not one to splash the cash.

However, he may need to start by taking a look at himself just as Morrison suggests as his man-management skills are poor and ultimately, it led to his downfall at their top-flight rivals, Chelsea and Manchester United.

When a team is stuck in a rut, they need real inspiration, not snide digs like the Portuguese chief has opted for in recent weeks.
