You are only as good as your players and they need to pick up their form.“It would not even come into the equation for me to get rid of him.”Spurs are without a Premier League win since September and defeat at the Hammers will ramp up the pressure on Poch, just 5½ months after he led the club to the Champions League final.And SunSport revealed Jose Mourinho is keeping a close eye on the Spurs situation — despite believing the Real Madrid job will be his if he wants it.Mourinho has been linked with a Bernabeu return for several months because of Zinedine Zidane’s struggles in his own second spell at the club.The former Chelsea boss, 56, told friends he is confident of being offered the post if and when Zidane goes.But the TV pundit also confided he would not necessarily accept, partly because of the possibility of taking over at Spurs.3Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himlast_img
