Reports: Mourinho Causing Unrest In Spurs Camp

Amid rumours that Jose Mourinho has already had a bust-up with a Tottenham Hotspur player, the Portuguese tactician is believed to be causing further unease at the club.

Reports: Mourinho In First Bust-Up With Spurs Player

The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager was reportedly involved in a heated argument a few days ago with left-back Danny Rose, who was said to have been annoyed at being excluded from Spurs' most recent matchday squad.

Mourinho is believed to have told the England fullback he felt that he was not physically ready for the match after just having come back from injury, comments the defender took issue with.

With the manager and his player then reportedly raising their voices at one another, it has now been claimed that Rose is not the only unhappy player at the Lilywhites at the moment.

According to The Sun, several players are feeling "dismayed by (Mourinho's) old-school tactics and uninspiring training sessions", despite the majority of his squad initially being optimistic about his appointment as the club's head coach in November, while it has also been suggested that there is an over-emphasis on basic training drills, such as long balls, flick-ons and throw-ins.

Mourinho is also believed to have upset a number of players in his squad over his treatment of French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, who joined the club from Olympique Lyon at the beginning of the season.

The 56-year-old recently went public with his criticism of the 23-year-old, suggesting that he was not pleased with the France international's fitness levels.

10 More January Transfers Confirmed

Spurs are currently eighth in the Premier League table, having won just eight of their 23 EPL matches in this campaign.
