Why And How Jose Mourinho Must Succeed At Spurs 5

Since making a name for himself as one of the most exciting coaches in world football at Porto, the Special One has stamped his legacy as one of the greatest managers in the modern era and in recent seasons, he has become a victim of his own success.

Jose Mourinho has been without a job since his sacking at Manchester United and although the Portuguese tactician has come under immense scrutiny in recent seasons for failing to adapt to the changes in modern football, the fact remains that he’s a proven winner.

However, it’s a must to consider some factors when analysing the career of the Special One that has now proclaimed to be the Humble One after his appointment as a Tottenham Hotspur manager.

In this write up, we take a critical look at how and why he needs to succeed as a manager of the North London club.

How will Jose be successful at spurs?

Jose needs reinvention.

The first and most important is not to do with Tottenham but to deal with himself. His reign came to a bitter end at Manchester United after he openly fell out with several players, something which he’s become quite famous about.

Despite winning two trophies with the Red Devils, their form during his latter part of his spell as the manager was atrocious. Jose who has not once spent more than three seasons at any club he has managed will look forward to breaking his jinx.

If we’re to be optimistic, we might hope that a period out of the dugout would’ve brought back a little of Jose’s playfulness, audacity and positivity.

The Kind Of Style He Adopts

Jose is a manager everyone knows to be a lover of 4-2-3-1 formation; which makes his midfield and defense solid in recent years. During Jose’s second season at United in the 2017/2018 season, his Manchester United side conceded lesser goals (28 goals) after Arch rivals and winner of the league in that period. (Manchester City) (27 goals).

With the quality of the players at his disposal at Spurs, implementing his favorite 4-2-3-1 formation shouldn’t be difficult albeit Jose’s side have conceded heavily since his appointment which is largely due to the fact that he’s prolly sorting his defense and midfield options.

One of the numerous issues facing Tottenham is the number of senior players in the team that needs to move on. Danny Rose has recently come out to say that he is happy to see out his last 18 months of his contract which whether playing or not is inconsequential to the English full back.

Meanwhile, Jan Verthogen, Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen will be able to leave on a free next summer.  Daniel Levy and Jose needs to synergize see to the movement of these players away from the club.

On the flipside, the players he needs to bring into the team to replace them seems like a daunting task for Jose who has been promised a substantial amount of money to spend.

Why Jose Must Succeed

1. Mourinho has the core group of players to work with.

In recent weeks, Spurs’ squad has been hampered by a combination of contract rebels and players who were deemed out of favour by Pochettino, but the fact remains that the North London club have the core group of players for Mourinho to work with, at least from now till the summer.

Tottenham who are well-represented upfront with Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane and with a midfield trio of Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko, Mourinho has all bases covered in the centre of the park and also has the luxury of Giovani Lo Celso or Christian Eriksen to add a creative spark, if necessary.

Over the years, Mourinho’s side have always had a solid core, to begin with, and although Spurs are in a state of turmoil, he’s got more than enough experience to steady the ship for the time being and compete for major honours next summer, with a handful of additions in the transfer market.

2. Jose Mourinho’s legacy at United needs to be rewritten.

Many are still not convinced that Jose was never the problem Old Trafford and as a result do not see the Portuguese become a success at White Hart Lane.

The Humble One needs to shut his critics at United especially some of the “Class of 92” players who ensured that Jose was sent parking as the united manager after heavy criticisms from each of them.

A success for Jose at Spurs will make some of the so called united legends have a rethink as to why they said what has led to the sack of the Ex Chelsea and Real Madrid boss. Hopeful, there will be regret on what veterans like Gary Neville and Paul Scholes have said.

3. Jose is a serial winner.

Recall that Jose has most of his honours in England as manager of Chelsea and Manchester United respectively; he’s gotten another opportunity to scoop another medal as spurs manager.

The last two jobs of the Portuguese has fetched him total of three trophies with the EPL, Uefa Eruopa League and the Carabao Cup in parade. The Humble One is a perfect fit as Spurs look forward to winning their first major trophy since 2008.

Super League: Respect & Dialogue Needed To Restore Normality

Super League: Respect & Dialogue Needed To Restore Normality

The FIFA President emphasized his full support to the European sports model, a successful model of openness and inclusivity, promotion and relegation, disapproving the concept of Super League

President Gianni Infantino has called for respect and dialogue as he expressed FIFA’s strong disapproval of the proposed European Superleague project, and has requested that the concerned parties consider their position in line with respecting the institutions that exist to protect the interest of national, European, and global football.

“FIFA is an organization which is built on values, the true values of sport,” said the FIFA President in his address to the 45th Ordinary UEFA Congress in Montreux, Switzerland.

“It is an organization that is built on our statutes, the statutes that define the institutional framework, with the pyramid, with FIFA, the confederations, the associations, the leagues, the clubs, the players. And at FIFA, we can only strongly disapprove of the creation of a super league which is a closed shop, which is a breakaway from the current institutions, from the leagues, from the associations, from UEFA, and from FIFA, which is outside of the system. There is no doubt whatsoever of FIFA’s disapproval for this.”

The FIFA President emphasized his full support to the European sports model, a successful model of openness and inclusivity, promotion and relegation, and a model that he promoted in his 16 years at UEFA:

“FIFA is here, and I am here today as FIFA President, to bring full support to European football, to UEFA, and the 55 member associations of UEFA and of FIFA, to the leagues, clubs, players, and to fans. To all the fans, all over Europe, and actually all over the world as well.”

“We can see that there is a lot to throw away for the short-term financial gain of some,” the FIFA President added. “People need to think very carefully, they need to reflect, and they need to assume responsibility. They need to think not only of their shareholders, but they need to think about all the people, of all the fans, of all those who have contributed to making European football what it is today. It goes back not only decades, it goes back more than one hundred years. People – with love, with passion, with commitment – have created all this. And we need to protect this. It is our task.”

“FIFA is a democratic organization, an organization that is open,” the FIFA President concluded. “Everyone can bring ideas and proposals, but always with respect for the institutions, leagues, associations, UEFA, and FIFA.

With respect for the history and with the respect for the passion of so many people around the world. I understand as well that on these particular days, emotions are very high, but we need to always keep the line. Football is hope, and it is our responsibility to make hope a reality. So we hope that everything will go back to normal and that everything will be settled, but always with acting responsibly, with respect, with solidarity, and always in the interest of national, European, and global football.”

3 Premier League Flops Who Made It Big Elsewhere

The English Premier League has welcomed some of the best players in the history of football. Players from different continents have made a huge impact on the league with impressive performances. There are others who failed to impress and can be termed as flops.

The League is quite unique from other European leagues. It is more competitive, fierce, physically challenging in nature. Needless to say, a player who isn’t mentally and physically geared up for this will stumble under the pressure.

Established stars can fall by the wayside with their former successes and triumphs becoming nothing more than a footnote in the EPL. Impressively, some of these players put in impressive performances when they moved to other leagues.

3 Premier League Flops Who Made It Big In Other Leagues

  • Paulinho

3 Premier League Flops Who Made It Big Elsewhere

Following the impending sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, Tottenham bought several players, one of the players they bought was Paulinho.

Paulinho was signed from Corinthians in Brazil where he helped them win the Copa Libertadores, Brasileirao, and the FIFA Club World Cup.

They defeated Chelsea in the latter to lift the trophy. Importantly, he had just won the FIFA Confederations Cup with Brazil and was voted as the third-best player at the tournament.

He joined Tottenham as the club’s record signing in 2013, so a lot was expected of him. However, his performance was not as impressive as the club had envisaged. He was later sold to Guangzhou Evergrande in China at a loss.

The Brazilian’s transfer to the Chinese league resulted in a change of fortunes, as helped the club claim the Chinese league and the AFC Champions League title in his first season.

In the second, he was voted into the Chinese League team of the year in recognition of his performance. Also, he won the league, FA Cup, and Super Cup.

Although critics downplayed his performance, citing the standard of the Chinese league compared to the English league, Paulinho impressed in Spain too following a €40 million move to Barcelona.

Paulinho helped the club claim the league and the Copa del Rey trophy. His performance in his only season with Barcelona impressed Ronaldinho who said: “He really stood out.”

  • Iago Aspas

Most Premier League fan remembers Aspas only as a Liverpool flop with the number 9 jersey. Aspas moved from boyhood club Celta Vigo to Liverpool for a deal estimated to be around £7.7 m, with Liverpool hoping to have unearthed a gem. However, that gem turns dregs, failing to score in any of his 14 league appearances.

After just one season, Liverpool decided that they have seen enough so they sent him on a season-long loan to Sevilla with an obligation to buy. In his season-long loan at the club, he was the joint top scorer in the Copa del Rey alongside Neymar with 7 goals and won the UEFA Europa League.

At the end of his season-long loan at Sevilla, the club signed him from Liverpool but sold him to Celta Vigo in the same transfer window. In every of his first 5 seasons at Celta Vigo, he scored in double digits.

In fact, in three of the 5 seasons, he won the Zarra Trophy awarded to the Spanish player with the most league goals in a season. As of December 2020, Aspas had won La Liga player of the month four times.

  • Diego Forlan

3 Premier League Flops Who Made It Big Elsewhere

Perhaps, the most notable and interesting English Premier League flop who became a star in another League. He was not just impressive in another league; he was extraordinary with his National team Uruguay.

Sir Alex Ferguson signed Forlan in 2001 following the attacker’s impressive form at Independiente in Argentina. In his first season in England, Forlan made 18 appearances but failed to score a single goal. The two seasons after were not impressive either, hence his transfer to Villarreal.

Impressively, Forlan scored 25 league goals in his first season with Villarreal and won the league’s top scorers award (2004/05). Also, he was awarded the European Golden Shoe award alongside Thierry Henry the same year. He left the club two seasons later for Atletico with 59 goals scored in 128 matches.

In his second season with Atletico Madrid (2008/09), Forlan beat Samuel Eto’o to the Spanish league’s top scorer’s award. He scored 32 league goals in 33 league appearances that season which earned him the Pichichi trophy. Again, he won the European Golden Shoe but this time it was not shared with anyone.

The next season (2009/10), Forlan played a key role as Atletico won the Europa League. He scored six times in the tournament, including two in the 2-1 win over Fulham in the final. He was voted as the man of the match in the final.

With his national team, he was just as impressive; he scored the most goals at the 2010 FIFA World Cup alongside Thomas Muller, Wesley Sneijder, and David Villa.

Furthermore, he was voted into the FIFA World Cup dream team and won the Golden Ball and goal of the tournament title. By the time he retired, he was Uruguay’s highest goal scorer in history, a record which has since been broken by Luis Suarez.

Forlan eventually became so good that some Football fans think he is the caliber of player that could have won the Ballon d’Or.

 

Conclusion

There are several reasons why players struggle when they change clubs, especially to other countries. Culture, language, teammates, family are some factors that can affect their performances.

These 3 cases show that a player may fail to perform in one league but go on to become a star in another league.
