So the way to Tottenham is clear. In the empty, 62,000-meter stadium, opened in 2019, which is the most expensive in Europe at over 1 billion euros, the WAC must hope for a miracle. Ferdinand Feldhofer’s team will also not help the Spurs’ shape in the Premier League. On Sunday they suffered a 2-1 defeat at West Ham, making them the fifth loser in their six most recent league games. Star coach Jose Mourinho’s squad is already nine points behind a Champions League place.
Mourinho, whose club is rumored to also show great interest in Leipzig’s ÖFB team player Marcel Sabitzer, exercised optimism after the somewhat unfortunate defeat. Reaching fourth place is “very difficult, but if it is mathematically possible, realistic”. The Portuguese said no to all questions about a possible crisis in his troops. “When a team struggles like that to get a different result, it’s never a group crisis,” Mourinho said.
“It’s a series of bad results,” said the 58-year-old, who is coming under increasing pressure. In any case, he has nothing to reproach himself for and has no doubts about his work. “Not a bit. The re are no better methods than mine and my coaching staff,” he clarified.
