Jose Mourinho regrets taking the Tottenham Hotspur job according to ex-Gunner Paul Merson, when speaking to the Daily Star

The talismanic football manager, joined Spurs following Mauricio Pochettino, in a move that shocked the majority of the football world.

At the time, Spurs were enduring a torrid time in the Premier League, but despite some below-average performances, Tottenham have climbed the Premier League table under Mourinho.

However, ex-Arsenal man, Paul Merson thinks differently and had some very harsh words to say about the new Spurs manager.

He said: “I said when he went there it would give them a lift and there would be a charm offensive – and he was all smiles for a while.

“But everyone knew it wouldn’t last, didn’t they? He’s gone back to being Grumpy Mourinho again. And I don’t see how he’s improved them at all. Not one bit.

“He looks like he’s thinking: ‘What have I done coming here?’ You don’t see him high-fiving ball boys now do you?”

Merson added: “Mourinho is only there to get them into the top four. I can’t see Daniel Levy wanting to win the FA Cup but not get back into the Champions League.

“But it’s not really working, is it? Chelsea are in the driving seat to finish fourth and I can’t see Spurs catching them right now.

“They are a very lucky football team at the moment because they’ve been ripped to shreds in their last two matches but still managed to win.”
