Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Moussa Sissoko, has claimed that the club’s former manager, Jose Mourinho, is not the only one at fault after Spurs ended the 2020/21 campaign in the seventh position.
Sissoko explained that Mourinho was not able to achieve his goals to qualify Tottenham for European football next season.
Mourinho, who will officially take charge of AS Roma ahead of the start of next season, was sacked by Tottenham almost three months ago following an indifferent run of results.
Despite leading Tottenham to the Carabao Cup final, the Portuguese was axed just six days before the clash with Manchester City at Wembley, following a 2-2 draw with Everton at Goodison Park less than 72 hours prior to his dismissal.

“For me, it was a real pleasure to be able to work with him [Mourinho],” Sissoko told Foot Mercato.
“We all know his experience and his career. He’s an immense coach, but with us, he was not able to achieve his goals, but he was not the only one at fault.
“He left and I wish him the best. I would have liked to be able to do better like the whole team. For various reasons, it didn’t work out like that.
“We cannot go back in time and we need to move forward into the present.”
