Jamie Carragher: "I Don't See Mourinho Back in the Premier League"

Thomas Tuchel has admitted that he was surprised to see Tottenham Hotspur sack Jose Mourinho, insisting that he didn’t see the move coming.

Mourinho was given his marching orders on Monday in the wake of Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Everton in the Premier League on Friday night. The Portuguese coach leaves Tottenham in seventh place in the Premier League table and five points adrift of the top four with six games left to play this season.

Spurs have struggled to find consistent form in the top flight in recent weeks and they have lost 10 of their 32 games in the Premier League this season. The north London side are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Southampton in the top flight on Wednesday night.

Speaking at a news conference on Monday afternoon, Tuchel said: “More or less I’m always a bit surprised when it happens [a managerial sacking]. “We’re all competitors and we all try to beat each other but in the end we wish every manager has a good atmosphere and is in a good state and place to work.

“It never feels good as another manager when someone is sacked but it’s not my job to comment on that. It is what it is. Everybody fights hard for results and when a big decision comes like this, it was a surprise. I honestly didn’t see it coming.”
Jose Mourinho 
The decision to sack Mourinho came just days before Tottenham’s EFL Cup final clash against Manchester City on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Jamie Carragher said Jose Mourinho's "ship has sailed" on his Premier League management career after the three-time league winner was sacked by Tottenham.

"I don't see Mourinho back in the Premier League, I think that ship's sailed now," he said. "I struggle to think of any club - he's been at Spurs, so he's not going to Arsenal, he's been at United so he's not going to City, Liverpool wouldn't have him.

"Would he go to a middle of the table club? I just don't see him there, I really don't. It's either international football or maybe Italy. The Italian champions this year will be Inter Milan, with Antonio Conte, who plays his type of football - so maybe you can get away with it a little bit more in Italy, because it was certainly a turn-off for Spurs supporters."

No Premier League side has dropped more points from winning positions this season than Spurs and while Mourinho did guide them to Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Man City, they also suffered an embarrassing Europa League exit to Dinamo Zagreb in March, as well as defeat by Everton in the FA Cup fifth round.

"I couldn't see light at the end of the tunnel for Spurs," continued Carragher. "My argument was, was winning the Carabao Cup for Spurs supporters enough to keep Jose in a job, looking to the future?

"I always thought, keep him until the cup final, he's great in one-off games, maybe not as much now, but I think Spurs have got less chance of winning now, and Pep Guardiola will be pleased when he sees that.

"Unless the players have gone to Daniel Levy and the feeling inside the club is that bad that they actually feel they do have more chance of winning at the weekend. Or Daniel Levy felt that if he won that cup it would make it more difficult to move him on." - Online Sources
