Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has claimed he and chairman Daniel Levy remain determined to end the club’s recent drop of form. Spurs are currently on a run of six defeats from their last seven Premier League games. They are ninth in the table and seven points adrift of the division’s top five.
RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann having been tipped as a potential replacement for the decorated Portuguese manager. Tottenham’s players are reported to be growing tired of Mourinho’s negative style of play.
However, the 58-year-old remains fully dedicated to the task at hand. He revealed ahead of his side’s Europa League clash against RZ Pellets WAC on Wednesday that his relationship with the chairman has not changed.
“My relationship is the same since day one, which is a relationship of respect and open communication,” Mourinho told reporters. “Nothing changed in relation to that.
“We communicate every day and we respect each other, and I believe that we share the feeling we aren’t happy with the results, but that doesn’t create any contradiction with us because we feel both exactly the same.
“My work is directly with the players, with the staff, the first team, the medical team, the kitman, analysts. I believe that we share the same feelings which is nobody is happy, nobody is depressed but everybody believes that we will do better and everybody believes that better things are waiting for us.”
Mourinho was also asked whether or not he feels in debt to Levy. In response, he claimed that his willingness to succeed under Levy is the same as at every other side he has managed.
“I don’t know if debt is the right word,” he continued. “What I feel to Mr Levy is what I feel in every club I’ve worked in. I want to give happiness to everyone, the chairman, the players, the fans, everybody connected to the club. I feel one of them and I want to give happiness to them, I don’t change.”
