Former Tottenham player suggests Mourinho sign another Southampton midfielder.

Jose Mourinho

has got mixed results with

Tottenham Hotspur

so far this season. If they have space and time to operate their deadly counter-attacks, they would look like a title contender but otherwise, they are less than impressive.

Glenn Hoddle believes that Spurs needs another player like


to provide passes although it’s not the way Jose Mourinho plays. Hoddle suggests

James Ward-Prowse


Quizzed by the Evening Standard on what Spurs need, club legend Hoddle said:

“I would probably look at a player who can pick passes. Someone like Bruno Fernandes.

“When Christian Eriksen was on song for two-and-a-bit seasons, he could hit those passes to Dele Alli or Harry Kane or whoever made those runs.

“I am not sure if it Jose Mourinho’s style of player. They have some decent players there, but Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele are different, they run with the ball, they are holders of the ball. But someone who can hurt you with a pass, a real creative player.

“I have said it before, I do not think Jose would like him but the lad at Southampton, James Ward-Prowse, would be a major asset. Him and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg would be a nice balance.”
