Oliseh: Spurs’ job final straw for almost forgotten Mourinho
Oliseh on Mourinho: Failure at Tottenham could force him into early retirement.
Mourinho was appointed Tottenham Hotspurs manager on Wednesday following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.
The Portuguese has been out of Job since he’s sacked by Manchester United last December, as many top clubs in those space of a year with vacancies having to look elsewhere.
One of such is the Real Madrid job and according to a former President of the club Ramon Calderon, the Los Blancos players were against Mourinho’s return to the club.
Calderon told Skysports. “The dressing room leaders pushed to reject the possibility of Jose Mourinho.
“He left [Real Madrid] a lot of problems and I think he would have been another problem to the ones we already have if he had come. I think Jose Mourinho would have been a step backwards, there was a lot of problems and controversy when he was here.
“He is a good coach with a lot of trophies but many of the leaders in the dressing room didn’t like him and I think that was important in the decision-making.”

Oliseh, a former captain and coach of Nigeria believes Mourinho could be forced into early retirement should he fail in his new job.
“If Mourinho still wants to continue being relevant as a top coach and not become a top coach forced into early retirement, he has to succeed big time at Tottenham,” Oliseh wrote in SundayOlisehTV
“The Tottenham job has the strong potential to Remake, Relaunch Jose “the Special One” Mourinho, or be the final stone, that breaks this football personality’s back.
“I really wish the self-proclaimed special one all the best, but some things are worth considering though; Bayern Munich needed a top coach to replace Nico Kovac, they did not turn to Mourinho, Juventus needed a top coach, they rather signed Sarri, Real Madrid, inter Milan, just to mention a few all went for other coaches and not Mourinho.”
