Roy Keane believes Tottenham Hotspur should keep Jose Mourinho at the club despite their disappointing position in the Premier League table. Spurs are seventh in the league.

Mourinho was appointed at the north London club to try and win major honours. But he is now the bookies’ favourite to become the next Premier League manager to lose his job.

“I certainly wouldn’t, no, because I think his CV warrants him to stay longer in the job,” the ex-United captain replied when asked if he would look to replace Mourinho at Spurs. “I said that at Manchester United. We don’t know what’s going on in the background, sometimes his relationship with board members or players, he can fall out with people

“But from a footballing point of view, I would of course stick with him because his CV warrants certainly another year or two at the club. I’d say that anyway about giving managers a chance because I’ve been a manager and sometimes it does take a bit longer, even for the great managers.”

Spurs now have five days to recover as they take on Everton next Friday night as they look to return to winning ways in the top flight.
