Can Jose win the league?
Tottenham Hotspur faced a turbulent 2019-20 season. The club parted ways with Mauricio Pochettino who had been in charge of the club for six years. During his time as Spurs boss, Pochettino transformed Tottenham from a mid-table team to title contenders. The Argentinian also guided Spurs to their first-ever Champions League final in 2019.
However, in football, you are only as good as your last game. Despite all that Pochettino had done for Spurs, He got sacked following Tottenham’s poor start to the season. The Argentinian made way for Jose Mourinho as the boss of Tottenham.
Jose Mourinho is one of the most successful and controversial coaches in football. Chelsea and Manchester United sacked Mourinho before his move to North London. However, his pedigree and experience made him the ideal candidate to take over at Tottenham.
The First Season
Although Mourinho took over during the middle of the 2019-20 season, the Portuguese made his impact felt at Tottenham. Mourinho is known for being one of the most challenging managers in world football and has often made the headlines for being harsh to his players. His entry at Spurs meant the end of the road for some and a second chance for others.
Simply put Jose’s first season was a mixed bag of emotions and you could argue that he was getting to grips with the team.
However, from what we have seen so far this season we might have to take Jose and Spurs as serious title contenders.
Can they do it?
Let’s just say it wouldn’t be out-of-this-world to expect Spurs winning the league. However, the fact that they are in the conversation of potential winners is a big step for the club.
The win against City was a Mourinho masterclass. Two shots, two goals and a big win. It was the Son and Kane show again and if they continue to fire who would doubt Spurs?
