Souness backs Jose to succeed at Spurs

Graeme Souness has labeled Jose as the perfect fit for the Tottenham Hotspur job!

“I think it was common sense [for Levy to sack Pochettino] and it was common sense again to go for the guy they have gone for,” Souness told Sky Sports News.

“Mauricio Pochettino had appeared to be a man who didn’t want to be at Spurs, which I find very strange.

“Jose Mourinho is a perfect fit for them.

“Spurs are genuinely a big football club and they need someone who can turn what is perceived to be attacking attractive football into a slightly more pragmatic approach that will put some silverware in the boardroom.

“He has won trophies wherever he’s been and I would expect him to do the same at Spurs.

“Deep inside, he is an angry and frustrated man with the way it turned out for him at United, so I think Spurs will reap the benefit of that.

“Will they win the league this year? No. But they will be far more difficult to play against.

“He is walking into a job in our league with no surprises, he knows what’s ahead of him, he knows the players he is playing against and will have a real grasp of the players he is working with.”

“The poor form goes back to last year and what completely camouflaged that was getting to the final of the Champions League,” added Souness.

“Last year, it was 20 games in total they lost. If a team can lose that many games and get to the final of the Champions League, you’d have to say it was a fluke and it camouflaged what was really going on at Spurs.”
