Jose Mourinho has had a hard time in his managerial career since his second stint at Chelsea.

Since being sacked at Chelsea, Mourinho has also been sacked at Manchester United and now Tottenham. The Portuguese won his last Premier League title with Chelsea back in 2015, and has never won the league again since leaving Chelsea.

Former Kenyan star Ronald Okoth, believes that Mourinho is missing efficient players like Chelsea legends Didier Drogba and Michael Essien who understood his philosophy.

“For Mourinho, I think he is missing the right players that would understand his philosophy and implement them with absolute efficiency,” Okoth told Goal.

“Talk of players like Salomon Kalou, Didier Drogba and Michael Essien, men who achieved big under the Mourinho philosophy.

“It is time that he goes back to the drawing board and comes up with something that can work well for him in the current environment.

“Results take time and he was well on the right course [at Spurs] and it was a matter of time before he could have achieved. But again, this is football sometimes our tactics work and sometimes they do not.

“Mourinho has been having these kinds of bad seasons.”

He also added that Mourinho is still a good manager and shouldn’t be judged based on his recent struggles.

“Look at Liverpool currently and where they were last season,” concluded Okoth. “One cannot say they are poor but they are under a cycle common in football when things do not work for you absolutely.

“So, one should not judge Mourinho based on his recent performances. That does not take away the fact that he is a good manager.”
