Premier League: Harsh criticism from Darren Bent to Mourinho: His tactics are dated now

With Tottenham Hotspur having been knocked out the Europa League and slipping further down the Premier League table, Darren Bent has criticised Jose Mourinho‘s tactics.

The former Spurs striker suggested that the Portuguese coach’s ideas need to modernise.

“I wouldn’t say he’s a bad manager, but I just think for whatever reason his tactics might be a bit dated now,” Bent said on TalkSPORT.

“He was brought in to win trophies, he was never going to be a manager that was brought in as a project – three or four years down the line he’s going to be building teams. That was [Mauricio] Pochettino.”

For Bent, the Europa League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb is hard to look past.

Spurs have qualified for the Carabao Cup final but Bent feels that even if they beat Manchester City to lift that trophy, it won’t be enough to justify Mourinho‘s season.

“When they got rid of Poch when they did, and we know they were on the decline then, they brought in Jose Mourinho to win a trophy,” said Bent.

“The fact they went out like they did against Zagreb… I don’t think winning the League Cup is enough.

“At the end of the season if he was to go, [if] they sacked him or he walked, he’d go, ‘I did my job, I won them a trophy.’”

Mourinho still has over two years to run on his Tottenham contract and it could cost the north London club in the region of 40 million pounds if they want to get rid of him early.
