Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has admitted that he has had a change of heart on Jose Mourinho’s appointment after watching the unexciting displays the side have put in recently.
Spurs results initially picked up after the Portuguese coach arrived in North London but performances and results went downhill since the turn of the year, partly due to injuries to key players. The results and the displays have been pretty mixed since the restart and O’Hara has admitted that he is not excited by watching his beloved Spurs play anymore. Speaking to talkSPORT Breakfast, he said:
“The fact of the matter is that there is no excitement in the games anymore. Spurs are so boring to watch. I was a big fan when Mourinho came in and it was like ‘right, we’re going to win a trophy and I’m all for let’s just win a trophy, it doesn’t matter how we do it’.
“But actually, I’m now sat there thinking ‘I have lost all excitement of watching Spurs’. I loved it with Poch. Even though we had a bit of a poor start to the season and there was a bit of unrest in the dressing room, I still loved watching them. I loved seeing how they played.
“Now I’m watching them thinking ‘I’d rather put Come Dine With Me on’.”
O’Hara also added:
“Give him (Mourinho) a transfer window, see what he does next season. If he can bring a trophy to the club, then it’s been worthwhile. If it doesn’t look like we are going to win a trophy… the thing is with Spurs fans is the expectation.
“Poch did turn us into a consistently top four football team. If we’re not going to be that all of a sudden, with that stadium and where the club are trying to go, then we have to get rid.”
