Mourinho's team has upset fans in recent weeks with poor results

Glenn Hoddle believes it is ridiculous to question Jose Mourinho's future at


, and the Spurs legend believes that there is no reason for Tottenham to sack their manager while there is a chance of winning titles.

Mourinho's team has performed poorly in recent games and has recorded 5 defeats in 6 games, which has upset the fans. However, Mourinho led his team to the Carabao Cup final and reached the last 32 teams in the Europa League and winning the cup is not out of reach for them. Hoddle now defended the Portuguese coach.

He told

Evening Standard


“No I don’t, not at the moment.

“He has been brought in to bring silverware, he is in a cup final. How can you sack somebody who has got a cup final in April? It is ridiculous. That is the reason why he has been brought in.

“Consistency and maybe other things have got to change over time, but I think he has earned the right with what he has done in his career to be given more time.

“As much as I look at Tottenham at times and think we do look an average team. But that is other clubs as well and that can change very quickly. A couple of wins and the confidence can come back.

“There is a lot of calls from fans [for Mourinho to be sacked] but second half against West Ham, who are flying at the moment and are a great side, every attacking option he had was on the pitch. They hit the bar, hit the post and it could have gone a different way.”
