The recent sacking of the iconic Jose Mourinho at Tottenham, despite lasting just a mere 2 years at the hot seat sums up his dwindling fortunes in the last decade if statistics were anything to go by. His second return to the Premier League first with Chelsea has proved to be disastrous and even more disappointing is a pattern of repeated mistakes that who knows why he did not sort himself out before it was too late. His second spell at Chelsea started to fall apart after the hugely publicized fallout with team doctor Eva Carneiro that eventually led to a lawsuit and since then his club career has disintegrated brick by brick and one wonders whether there is any big club left for him to try and redeem his reputation. Not even the Europa League and League cup trophies that he won at Manchester United did anything to convince fans that the Mourinho of the old was back. He ended up falling out with the likes of Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw among other players and to be fair to him, all this trouble was of his own making. They say success is more dangerous than failure and the case of Mourinho is the classic example of why it is so. His past successes seemed to go to his head further inflating his ego and coupled with his unequivocally huge personality, that was a recipe for disaster. More so, when sometimes rightfully criticized by the media, he chose the combative approach to answering questions and this fuelled the toxicity that alienated him from the dressing rooms and the fans alike. Many would say he never really suited the Man United culture and even if that was the case, he surely would have done better with Tottenham. Tottenham's fans were also suspicious of his appointment following his tragic ending at Old Trafford, and it was a matter of time before the skeletons in the closet came out in almost similar fashion. He fell out with talented fan favorite Dele Alli and it was surely bound to have a ripple effect across the entire squad never mind his questionable handling of Gareth Bale. It's only Son and Harry Kane who cared to fight for him till the end and maybe Daniel Levy was right to pull the trigger before the situation escalated out of control. The negative tactics that he used at Man United were the same ones he tried to replicate at Spurs and given the history of the two clubs being used to entertaining attacking football and Mourinho adamantly refusing to adapt his tactics and most importantly man management style, one wonders what next for him as far as club football is concerned. Maybe the Portuguese National team job could be his safe landing place but in all due honesty, his club career at the very top is all but done and dusted to say the least. Tottenham was undoubtedly his last chance to redeem himself both on and off the pitch at a major club. It's surely a learning lesson not just for managers but any other ambitious person alike that no matter the success, influence and power one can achieve in the world, do not believe your own hype completely as an inflated ego is a recipe for self-destruction!
