Steven Gerrard has been appointed as Jose Mourinho’s replacement at Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham Hotspur have named Liverpool legend and Rangers boss Steven Gerrard as a candidate to succeed Jose Mourinho, according to 90min.com (h/t Express).
The Portuguese tactician has been at the club since November 2019, when he was brought in to replace Mauricio Pochettino, who was fired. However, given the current situation, Mourinho may be facing a similar situation as a result of recent results.
Tottenham has had a dreadful last seven days, including a Premier League defeat to arch-rivals Arsenal. The team was then relegated from the UEFA Europa League after a pathetic surrender against Dinamo Zagreb.
The threat of no silverware, despite the fact that the Carabao Cup is still up for grabs, as well as the possibility of losing out on Champions League football for another season has placed Mourinho under a lot of pressure.
During this time, reports have circulated that Tottenham has given Mourinho until the end of the season to save his job. Should he fail to achieve the club’s goals, the Portuguese will be fired, with Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City and Julian Nagelsmann of RB Leipzig already being lined up as replacements.

Steven Gerrard’s name has now been added to the list of possible replacements for Jose Mourinho at Tottenham. The former Liverpool captain is now the manager of Rangers in Scotland, where he has done an outstanding job.
This season, Gerrard led the Gers to their first Scottish Premiership title in over ten years, as well as putting an end to Celtic’s dominance in style. This has drawn the attention of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, despite some reservations about his lack of experience.
