Mourinho On Longest Winless Run Of His Career by obembet(f): 2:30pm On Mar 10
Tottenham's 3-0 defeat to RB Leipzig in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday night has seen Jose Mourinho fail to win his past six matches in all competitions - his longest ever run without victory.

Across Spurs' last six games, Mourinho has seen his side beaten four times and held to two draws as they struggle in the wake of injuries to key attackers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

That poor form has ended the club's hopes of any silverware this seaso, with Tottenham knocked out of the FA Cup and Champions League in the space of a week.

Spurs also now face a real fight to qualify for the Champions League next season with the club currently eighth in the Premier League - seven points shy of fourth-place Chelsea.

Mourinho has struggled since he replaced Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, with the club's 3-0 loss on Tuesday condemning him to his joint-heaviest Champions League defeat and three consecutive losses in the competition for the first time in his career.

While Spurs have failed to fire freely without Kane and Son up front in recent weeks, the side's biggest issue since Mourinho's arrival has been in defence, with the club conceding the second most goals of any Premier League side behind Aston Villa in all competitions since 'The Special One' took charge.

Tottenham have in fact failed to keep a clean sheet in their past eight games in all competitions with Leipzig highlighting their defensive struggles in Germany.

Marcel Sabitzer opened the scoring after just 10 minutes on Tuesday before adding a second in the 21st minute as Spurs dug themselves a deeper hole after losing the first leg at home 1-0.

Leipzig substitute Emil Forsberg would then wrap up the contest in the 87th minute as he found the back of the net just seconds after being brought on.

Mourinho must now try to end his longest winless run on Sunday when Spurs host Manchester United in the Premier League.

While Tottenham have hit a rough patch over the past few months, the Red Devils have started to hit their stride and have avoided defeat in their last 10 matches.

smiley Soothes him right!!!

No single pity for Mourinho.

He is simply trying to reap where he did not sow.

Pochettino did virtually everything for Tottenham,
He (Pochettino) made Tottenham a top-four contender, petty title contenders, Europe Champions league team, took them to the champions league final and for no fncking reason, they fired him to bring in the so called special one that is not special after all undecided undecided

That serves you right Mourinho

Mourinho is a typical example of "Nothing lasts forever"

I remember when he was Chelsea coach. He was like the "god of football", talks to people anyhow, holds media briefing, etc.

Now, look at him, struggling to win a match.

Lesson: Life humbles everyone.

I think Mourinho's biggest concern now is how to make sure he has 11 players to select for a game.

Even a magician will struggle with Tottenham's current condition

I admire Mourinho a lot, but what I do not like about him, is the part where he never blames himself, but others for his failures.
A man has to own up to his failures, so as to know how to avoid them later in the future.
