Jose Mourinho’s stance on Bale signing revealed and other reasons why he had to leave

Jose Mourinho-Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties at the London club yesterday.

The Portuguese manager has failed to live up to the expectations since joining the club and Spurs are currently struggling to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League.

The Londoners were quite disappointing in the European competitions as well this season and it is understandable why they have decided to part ways with their manager.

Apart from the results, there are quite a few other reasons why Tottenham have been forced to get rid of the Portuguese manager this week.

Boring style of football

Jose Mourinho has been heavily criticized for his style of play.

Having watched Tottenham play free-flowing attacking football under Mauricio Pochettino the fans have not been able to adapt to Mourinho’s negative approach.

Treatment of certain players

Jose Mourinho’s treatment of certain players like Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Danny Rose has attracted a lot of criticism throughout the season.

All three players have been frozen out of the first team and they have been criticized publicly by the manager. It is believed that his treatment of these players baffled their teammates and added to the tension behind the scenes.

Gareth Bale transfer

Jose Mourinho was against signing the Real Madrid winger on loan in the summer but Daniel Levy pushed for Gareth Bale’s return and eventually agreed on a deal with Real Madrid to loan the Welshman.

The Tottenham manager was keen on signing other attackers who are able to make an immediate impact but Levy’s decision to sign Bale left the side with the shortage of options in attack.

The Welshman needed a long time to recover his fitness and he has not been able to replicate his speak form since his return to the London club.

Jose Mourinho’s decision not to sign the player has been proven right as the player has been a major flop so far. But it seems that the difference in opinion regarding the Welshman’s signing has contributed to Mourinho’s departure.

Levy clearly expected Mourinho to get the best out of Bale but the Portuguese manager left the Welshman on the bench more often than not as a squad player. 

Even when Spurs were drawing with Everton in their last game, Bale was left on the bench.
