Ex-Spurs midfielder Redknapp: Mourinho must take responsibility

Tottenham Hotspur legend Jamie Redknapp insists manager Jose Mourinho must 'take responsibility' for the club's problems.

Spurs fell 3-1 to Manchester United on Sunday, leaving them six points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.

And Redknapp pointed out Mourinho's mistakes when speaking after the game.

"What Jose has also done in this period is he's made them a really tough watch,' the former midfielder said on Sky Sports punditry duty.

"You can say what you like about Spurs but they always been a good football team, they've always had a style. If Spurs fans were here right now watching that, they wouldn't enjoy it one bit.

"Too often I watch this side and there's no flair or excitement. I don't think this is a bad squad of players, I've said it before and I stand by it.

"Jose is looking at it and trying to blame everybody else, he has to take responsibility.

"When you're a good manager, you organise your team to get that result whatever it takes. A great manager would find a way to get them organised."
