Jose Mourinho’s coaching tactics are outdated in today’s football, Darren Bent has said. Bent recently revealed that if the Portuguese manager wins the Carabao Cup vs City, it’ll only end up papering over the cracks at the club.
According to him, he is not saying Jose is a bad manager in modern football, but his successful tactics that worked in years past just do not work anymore.
He added that Spurs signed the ex MUFC boss to win trophies, not to build the team for years like Pochettino did.
His words, “I wouldn’t say he’s a bad manager, but I just think for whatever reason his tactics might be a bit dated now,”
“He was brought in to win trophies. He was never going to be a manager that was brought in as a project – three or four years down the line he’s going to be building teams. That was [Mauricio] Pochettino.”
“When they got rid of Poch when they did, and we know they were on the decline then, they brought in Jose Mourinho to win a trophy.”
“It will paper over the cracks. A lot of people had put them and United as favourites. The fact they went out like they did against Zagreb – I don’t think winning the League Cup is enough.”
“At the end of the season if he was to go, [if] they sacked him or he walked, he’d go ‘I did my job, I won them a trophy’.”
On the UEL, “It was quite sad. They should not lose that tie, I could not see another winner. The fact they lost 3-2 could arguably be their biggest shock in history in terms of European football.”
