Tottenham Hotspur have endured a difficult start to the new season, putting boss Mauricio Pochetitno under some pressure.

The 3-0 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion was just the latest in a growing line of disappointments, especially as it came just days after a 7-0 hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich.

A home defeat to Newcastle United and Carabao Cup exit to Colchester United were other shock results for Spurs, who haven't found any fluency or consistency this term.

 

Pochettino doesn't appear to be under any immediate risk of being sacked, but some are starting to wonder whether he could leave the club in the summer of 2020.

Managers are already being linked with the post, from Jurgen Klinsmann and Gareth Southgate to Eddie Howe, but the biggest name yet has now been touted for the role in Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has been out of football since departing Manchester United in December 2018, and he will no doubt be hoping for a return to the Premier League.

The Daily Mail claim that Mourinho has his eyes on the Tottenham job, seemingly feeling they're the right project for him to return to management to, most likely at the end of the season if it was ever going to happen.

That rumour has unsurprisingly sparked a reaction on Twitter, with some Spurs fans feeling that he's the kind of winner that Tottenham need if Pochettino ends up moving on.

Others think Mourinho and Daniel Levy together would be a complete nightmare, and vowed that the day Mourinho arrives at Tottenham is the day they stop supporting the club, with some strong reactions to what appears an unlikely rumour.
