At the start of the season, Tottenham looked like a clear contender for the Premier League title.
Moreover, the 1-6 against the Red Devils seemed to mark what would be an extraordinary campaign for the Spurs.
But the club has failed to live up to expectations, and the only thing left for them this season is to fight to secure a spot for European competition.
After the 2-2 draw against Newcastle last Sunday, Spurs boss Mourinho was asked why this club had so much trouble securing the table’s top spots. Something that their former clubs did not suffer from. The Portuguese coach’s response was: “Same coach, different players.”
This answer shows that Mou is not happy with his players and plans a big reform for the next season.
The first candidate to leave the club is Serge Aurier. Mourinho himself publicly stated that he was afraid of the French player’s defensive abilities.
The relationship between the two is not good, and there have been several confrontations and not very pleasant discussions.
The player was about to leave the club last summer, but negotiations with AC Milan and PSG did not continue as both clubs moved for other players.
Another of the players who will surely leave North London is Dele Alli. The player has fallen from grace and even lost his place in the England squad.
Like Aurier, Dele Alli does not have a good relationship with Mou, which has caused the player to lose confidence and form.
Other players who appear to be on the departing list are Harry Winks, Erik Lamela, and Davinson Sanchez.
