On an individual level I have appreciated working with him and lament that things have not worked out as we both had visualized. He will consistently be wanted here and we should jump at the chance to say thanks to him and his instructing staff for their commitment."

Mourinho had been in control at Spurs since November 2019, supplanting Mauricio Pochettino, marking an arrangement until the finish of the 2023 season.

In his first mission, Mourinho took Tottenham from fourteenth in the Premier League to complete 6th - getting Europa League capability - yet were taken out of the Champions League at the last-16 phase by RB Leipzig.

Spurs play Southampton on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports Premier League, before Sunday's excursion to Wembley for the Carabao Cup last against Manchester City. 

Mourinho has additionally been denied the opportunity of conveying a first piece of flatware to the club in 13 years.

'Same mentor, various players' 

Mourinho had scrutinized his major parts lately, strikingly blaming stars for "stowing away" in the loss to Arsenal. 

He said: "No force, no squeezing. As far as making assaulting football, some significant players were covering up. In the second half we just needed to improve which we did."

Asked after a draw against Newcastle about Tottenham's propensity to neglect focuses from winning positions, he gave the spiked answer: "Same mentor, various players". 

He disclosed to Sky Sports after the Newcastle game: "It was anything but an issue of battle, it was anything but an issue of mentality, the players needed to win yet I must be straightforward and say I saw things on the pitch, not as far as disposition but rather regarding profile, vision, balance, which has a place with the top players, I didn't find in each position." 

Mourinho had seemed to attempt to take an alternate tack before the takeoff was affirmed, closing down inquiries from the media about his side's frailties. 

Gotten some information about their proceeding with inclination to drop focuses, Mourinho said: "That is the thing that I'm not prepared to examine with you. I think it has to do with a portion of our characteristics collectively, however I'm not prepared to examine with you." 

At the point when gone ahead when he would talk about this matter, Mourinho said "perhaps never".

Jamie Redknapp had demanded Mourinho needed to assume liability for a Tottenham side neither getting results nor, as he proclaimed, great to watch. 

Talking after the new 3-1 home loss to Manchester United, Redknapp said: "What Jose has done in this period is make them a truly intense watch. You can say what you like about Spurs throughout the most recent 40 years however they've generally been a decent football crew; they've generally had a style of play. 

"On the off chance that Spurs fans were in here, I don't think they'd appreciate that the slightest bit. Again and again I watch this Spurs side and there's no genuine style, there's no energy. 

"I don't think this is an awful crew of players; I've said it previously and I'll remain by it. 

"This chief has cleaved and changed at the back. To play football, you must have a science, a relationship with whoever you're playing close by. 

"Prior in the season, he played with (Pierre-Emile) Hojbjerg and (Moussa) Sissoko in midfield; now and then they'd go into a back six. It was certifiably not an incredible watch yet in any event you understood what they were attempting to do. They were being protective and getting results. At the present time, they're attempting to be guarded, they're not getting results and they're an inconceivably extreme watch. 

"The chief needs to assume liability. We talked in the past about a Jose masterclass; he adored it and commended it. In the event that he doesn't think this is a decent crew… indeed, an incredible supervisor would figure out how to get his players coordinated. 

"They're not playing extraordinary football and they're losing matches. It's not just about the capability of Harry Kane leaving, it's the monetary ramifications with the arena, the resources, different players like Dele Alli, Harry Winks. Daniel Levy won't care for the way that his players are degrading resources. He'll detest it."

Keane's backing for Mourinho

It followed analysis from Paul Pogba, who dropped out with Mourinho during the pair's time at United. 

"He has an incredible record, he's come into this side to contend; completing 6th or seventh isn't what they've utilized him for," said Keane. 

"Jose has consistently has splendid protectors, legitimate midfielders regarding mentality. In any case, Spurs aren't sufficient. They're not sufficient to keep it tight behind Kane and Son.

"In the event that he actually has this mentality of getting our noses in front, pause for a moment and clutch drives, this group protectively - and I'm including the goalkeeper - aren't sufficient. 

"These fellows here are not even close as adequate protectively as what he's had at his past clubs. Absence of pioneers, absence of characters, not adequate protectively. 

"It's a great deal of things going in with the general mish-mash and it is anything but a simple fix. In any case, I think his CV warrants remaining longer in the work." 

'Preferable crews over Spurs in top-four race' 

Jamie Carragher talking after Everton draw: "I referenced about these groups maybe not being Champions League level and l think we saw that around evening time. Individuals may say that it's not sufficient for Spurs, but rather l don't accept that with the crew Tottenham have they ought to be in the main four. There are better crews in this association. I felt if Tottenham got into the best four this season it would be a slight over-accomplishment."
