Players disagree with Mourinho's tactics

Just two months after Jose Mourinho was bought on board to replace Mauricio Pochettino, his players seem to disagree with his match tactics and style of training. According to reports, players are not liking his 'old-school' tactics and are of the opinion that his training methods are mundane and lack any imagination.

According to reports, players are of the opinion that their training sessions focus a lot on long balls and throw-ins in what is called a lower-league training session. Another problem that the players are facing is the way Mourinho is treating midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

The 23-year-old French midfielder signed for Tottenham Hotspur F.C. in the year 2019 for a fee of £53.8million from Lyon but injuries have resulted in his game time being restricted to a couple of games. He has only played 20 games for the club in the 2019-20 season bagging 2 goals and providing three assists.

Tottenham next plays against Manchester City in a Premier League match on February 2. The match will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham is currently placed 6th with 9 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses in 24 matches they have played so far.
