Jose Mourinho MUST take responsibility for Tottenham’s struggles with his side a ‘tough watch’, insists Jamie RedknappApril 12, 2021
JOSE MOURINHO needs to 'take responsibility' for Tottenham's troubles, according to Sky Sports pundit and former Spurs star Jamie Redknapp.
The Londoners surrendered a 1-0 lead on Sunday to meekly lose 3-1 at home to Manchester United.
The defeat leaves Mourinho's side in seventh spot in the Premier League, six points off West Ham in fourth position.
And Redknapp was not impressed with what he saw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – and believes the buck stops with one man.
Speaking after the game, the 47-year-old said: "What Jose has also done in this period is he's made them a really tough watch.
"You can say what you like about Spurs but they always been a good football team, they've always had a style. If Spurs fans were here right now watching that, they wouldn't enjoy it one bit.
"Too often I watch this side and there's no flair or excitement. I don't think this is a bad squad of players, I've said it before and I stand by it.
"Jose is looking at it and trying to blame everybody else, he has to take responsibility.
"When you're a good manager, you organise your team to get that result whatever it takes. A great manager would find a way to get them organised."
Star man Harry Kane's future at the North London club has been thrown into doubt with Spurs looking likely to miss out on Champions League football once again.
Multiple news outlets have claimed Kane will ask to leave his boyhood club if they miss out on Europe's most prestigious competition.
Although SunSport understands the 27-year-old will stay in North London unless a European club stump up £175million.
And the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Winks have been shunted on to the fringes and could be moving on this summer.
Redknapp added: "For them to be in a position they are right now, it's not just the financial implications for the club with the stadium, and the assets like Dele Alli and Harry Winks.
"Having spent a bit of time at Spurs I know Daniel Levy will not like the fact that a lot of the players he's got are devaluing assets, he hates that.
"He wants to keep players' assets so when it comes to selling they're worth more than what you bought them for. When you just cast them aside like he does I don't think it helps one bit."
After the game Mourinho lashed out at VAR for apparently missing out on 'an elbow' from Paul Pogba on Serge Aurier.
He also hit out at rival boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Tottenham chief was furious after Solskjaer accused Son Heung-min of conning officials to get Edinson Cavani’s strike chalked off by going down too easily under a flailing arm from Scott McTominay.
