Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent says Jose Mourinho is not a bad manager but feels his tactics are outdated.

Spurs crashed out of the UEFA Europa League this week after throwing away a 2-0 first-leg lead to Dinamo Zagreb with a 3-0 loss on Thursday night.

Mourinho has come in for some criticism for his tactics in recent years, a sentiment which Bent agrees with.

“I wouldn’t say he’s a bad manager, but I just think for whatever reason his tactics might be a bit dated now,” Bent told talkSPORT.

“He was brought in to win trophies. He was never going to be a manager that was brought in as a project – three or four years down the line he’s going to be building teams. That was [Mauricio] Pochettino.

“When they got rid of Poch when they did, and we know they were on the decline then, they brought in Jose Mourinho to win a trophy.

“It will paper over the cracks. A lot of people had put them and United as favourites. The fact they went out like they did against Zagreb – I don’t think winning the League Cup is enough.

“At the end of the season if he was to go, [if] they sacked him or he walked, he’d go ‘I did my job, I won them a trophy’.”
