Graeme Souness has reacted to Jose Mourinho’s sacking at Tottenham (Pictures: Sky Sports)Graeme Souness insists he expects Jose Mourinho to be snapped up by a ‘big club’ after his ‘surprising’ sacking at Tottenham.
Asked where he sees Mourinho going following his departure from Spurs, Souness told Sky Sports: ‘He’s a big name, a big manager. He will be welcomed by other big clubs.
‘He’s got a track record that is right up there with the very best, he’s got a way of working which isn’t so attractive to a lot of people, but he gets the job done.
‘Things haven’t worked as Spurs this time around, he’s left in the week of a cup final, but he did fulfil that ambition by getting them there.
‘I think he will still be attractive to clubs, as long as he still has the appetite.’
Souness added: ‘I’m surprised, the timing is most unusual with a cup final on the horizon.
‘Something has gone on to bring this all to a head, I don’t think Jose would have been terribly happy with the way league form was going.
‘To second guess what’s happened, Jose is an experienced manager and he has become so frustrated with the players.
‘When you’ve tried everything, you end up having harsh words with them and falling out with them.
‘News of unrest in the dressing room then gets back to the decision makers at the club and then there is only one outcome, and that is form the manager to go.’
