UEFA admits the Champions League and the Europa League cancellation06 April 2020 / Rui Sousa
UEFA admits to cancel both tournaments if it is not possible to finish until August 3.
José Mourinho's arrival at Tottenham has generated great interest in the football fans. The Portuguese coach has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with Londoners, but the club supporters and the Premier League followers appear to be impatient to see the changes that the “happy one” will make in the Spurs. New Signs, changes in the team, wins, and titles… These are just some of the “demands” that have been made on the second-highest-paid coach in the world. Here are our five favorites.
Finish the Premier League in the Top 4
Tottenham's bad campaign in the Premier League was the key factor for Mauricio Pochettino's departure. Spurs are currently in 14th place, but only three points separate them from fifth place, which is worth a spot in next year's Europa League Group Stage. A more ambitious goal will be to reach the top 4. Eleven points separate the Londoners from the 25 points of Manchester City (4th), with Chelsea (3rd) and Leicester (2nd) with one more. Too far from everyone is Liverpool. Reds lead with 34 points. Can Mourinho open this fight?
Win a title this season
The Premier League is an almost impossible target for Tottenham, but “Spurs” are still alive in two competitions. The most ambitious goal is the Champions League. The current runners-up are comfortables in Group B are near the round of 16. A motivational boost with the arrival of Mourinho and his experience in the competition (two-time winner) may give Tottenham fans good reasons to smile. Less demanding, but not easy, is the English Cup. The Londoners won it 8 times, but the last was in 1991. Returning to Wembley and winning a trophy would be the right motivation to attack next season with more certainties than doubts.
Meet Ibra again
They worked together at Inter and Manchester United, and their admiration for each other is a public fact. Mourinho's arrival at Tottenham may have spoiled the plans of some European giants. The Swede left the LA Galaxy last month and a return to England to meet one of his favorites coaches is a real scenario.
Gareth Bale's chance to return to White Hart Lane would surely be one of the deals that would mark Jose Mourinho's times at Tottenham. The Welsh is far from the best form in Madrid. The bad relationship with Zidane is public and the recent controversy after Wales European qualification celebrations may precipitate the return.
Win against the ex clubs
Chelsea and Manchester United have in common that they had already been coached by José Mourinho and the Portuguese coach will face the two clubs again soon. At the beginning of December Tottenham will travel to Old Trafford on Matchday 15 of the Premier League and will host Chelsea on their new stadium on the 22nd. It will be curious how Mourinho's team behaves against both. Can the Portuguese give an early Christmas gift to his new fans?
