Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy has feelings of sympathy towards Jose Mourinho, according to reports. The 58-year-old saw his side return to winning ways with a 4-1 victory over Wolfsberger in the Europa League on Thursday night. That result was certainly needed after recent losses to Everton and Manchester City had piled the pressure on.

Tottenham took control of their Europa League tie against Wolfsberger on Thursday night.

Son Heung-Min, Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura all struck before half time with Carlos Vinicius then getting in on the act after the interval.

It was a key win for Tottenham, one that has bought Mourinho some time as he looks to keep talk of the sack at bay.

The 58-year-old has overseen a tricky spell in north London after an initially blistering start to the season, with defeats to Everton and City particularly disappointing.

And ESPN claim Mourinho won’t be sacked before the end of the season.

It’s claimed Levy has feelings of sympathy towards the Portuguese, with recent defeats coming at a time where Harry Kane has been out injured.

And Tottenham also don’t want to sack Mourinho because of the price. It would take a fee of around £30million to part ways with the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss, who only took over from Mauricio Pochettino in October 2019.

Furthermore, they remain in contention to win a trophy.

Tottenham are through to the final of the Carabao Cup, where they’ll face off against Pep Guardiola’s City at Wembley in April.

And their victory over Wolfsberger also means they’re in pole position to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

While Mourinho is safe for now, however, former Leeds star John Giles thinks he’s still in danger of losing his job.

“They are certainly in trouble, Mourinho is in trouble,” he said.

He is getting to a similar position as Manchester United in that he’s upsetting a lot of people – Gareth Bale and Dele Alli.

“A lot of it goes back to that documentary in the summer? I watched that documentary and things happened in that documentary that should never happen in a football club.

“First of all, whatever happens in the dressing room stays in the dressing room.

“There has to be a sense of trust between the manager and the players. I was very lucky that I played in a Leeds United team for 12 years with a very good manager and a good set of lads.

“There were big rows. Especially with big Jack. Jack would be involved in nearly all of them! Don would have a go at me, he’d have a go at Norman Hunter – it never became public. That is the way that it is supposed to be.

“Next thing, you have a documentary with Daniel Levy getting involved in it; you have Mourinho getting on to Dele Alli at that particular time.

“At the moment, looking at it last week when the match with Manchester City was finished – when they had a right hiding.

“I don’t know if you noticed, but he started putting his arms around the players – they didn’t want to know.

“Then after the match, he’s saying ‘I can’t say anything about the players, they did this, that and the other..’ – in other words, ‘I’m trying to get back with the players.’

“They weren’t good. They weren’t having a go for him.”

Tottenham are next in action against West Ham on Sunday.

The two teams played out a thrilling 3-3 draw when they met earlier in the campaign, with Manuel Lanzini scoring late to earn the Hammers a point.
