Jose Mourinho will be fighting for a new job at a top Premier League club because of his tendency to alienate players.
This is according to former English defender Wayne Bridge, who played under the Portuguese boss during his first spell in English football Chelsea.
Mourinho was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur on Monday a poor set of results that left a wide sense of negativity around the club.
The 58-year-old took over as Maurizio Pochettino in November 2019, but was fired by chairman Daniel Levy after just 17 months, with Spurs seventh in the Premier League, five points ahead of the top four.

Mourinho he has now worked for Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester United, however Bridge he believes his latest experience in north London will delay all potential suitors in the first place.
“It’s going to be a little difficult because of the clubs he’s been to, top Premier League clubs might not want to touch him,” he told bettingexpert.com.
“If it was me, I would take a little time, he had so many jobs and he won so many trophies, but he loves the game.
“Maybe he is the next national team because he was in all the big clubs. He could continue to rule Portugal at some stage or a Portuguese-speaking country like Brazil, I would love to see him. “
Mourinho had a lot of fickle connections at Tottenham, while Danny Rose was frozen, Dele Alli and Harry Winks pushed to the edges of the team, and Gareth Bale marginalized.
His spell at Manchester United was noticed by similar incidents, and left-back Luke Shaw was treated in particular.
“When you look at Chelsea and some of the players he brought in, they knew him very well, which went well for him,” Bridge added.
“I could imagine at Manchester United and Tottenham that the players did not warm up to him and that it could affect them if he thinks they are not good enough.
“The individual player-manager relationships probably let the team down.”
Bridge spent six years at Chelsea after moving from Southampton in 2003 and has personal experience with Mourinho’s methods.

“When things go wrong, maybe he didn’t do well. It can be quite difficult for me personally with him, “he said.
“I felt sometimes that I didn’t get much from him and I didn’t know what I had to do, and there was one game in particular when I was dragged at half time against Charlton. Not a word was said to me, and I thought it was rude.
“I don’t think the team played great in that half and to single me out was rude. He dragged me away and I saw him do it with other players and before, he did it after 20 minutes.
“When it gets week by week and you don’t get anything out of it, it gets hard.”
