Tottenham Hotspur reporter Alasdair Gold has shed some light on Spurs manager Jose Mourinho’s private view on 16-year-old forward Dane Scarlett in an article that he recently wrote for Football.London.

This comes after the Portuguese manager handed the Lilywhites academy product his Premier League debut on Sunday in Spurs’ 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

What has Mourinho publicly said about Scarlett?

As explained in a tweet that Gold posted sharing this article, Mourinho publicly made a ‘big claim’ about the teenager after handing him his league debut versus the Baggies, declaring in a post-match interview with the BBC: (3:00) “I wanted to be the one to put him on in a Premier League match because I know that he will be somebody in a few years.”

In his report for Football.London, Gold shared this quote and explained that ‘Mourinho is excited’ about the young attacker.

Mourinho’s ‘problem’

However, despite that excitement, Gold has shared that behind the scenes, Mourinho has a ‘problem’ regarding the teenager, as he supposedly knows that he probably won’t be the manager who gets the best out of Scarlett when he fully develops. That indicates the manager thinks it’s unlikely that he will still be at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at that point.

Transfer Tavern take

The longest period of time that Mourinho has spent at any club for a single stint during his managerial career is his spell of just over three years at Chelsea. That lasted from July 2004 until September 2007.

  Levy could find Spurs’ next Poch in “creative” 48 y/o mooted as a Mourinho successor - opinion As pressure is mounting on Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, some are talking of a successorAccording to the Daily Mail, ‘pressure is starting to mount’ on the 58-year-old following the 1-0 defeat to Brighton on Sunday night.

Per Statsbomb, a forward is expected to peak at age of 27 or 28, so with that in mind, it’s understandable for Mourinho to think it’s unlikely he’ll be at Spurs to get the best out of Scarlett. He may rate the teenager highly but the chances of Mourinho staying in north London for the best part of ten years is far-fetched.

That being said, it’ll be exciting to see what the Portuguese can extract from Scarlett over the course of the current campaign.
