In my last post I wrote how I expected Jose Mourinho to get sacked in May. It looks like the Board decided enough was enough and they pulled the trigger an entire month early. I don’t think this is much of a surprise at all. The results were terrible. The squad was clearly not enjoying themselves and Spurs made a huge mistake by employing Mourinho in the first place. It’s a good call to make this sacking happen now as it will give various coaches around the planet the chance to consider taking the job and if their current place of employment is where they want to be. I am sure there are some there that think that the squad isn’t as bad as the numbers reflect and it should be easy to juice the players and get them working again and enjoying the football. Nagelsmann is a name we keep hearing in the Rumour-,mill, but I think it unlikely Spurs can pull that one off. I think it’s more likely its Brendan Rogers. Ideally you want your new coach in on the 1st June to begin preparations for the season so I expect an announcement for the new manager somewhere around end of May.
