Mourinho took over from Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager in November 2019 and led the club to sixth in the English Premier League (EPL) during his first season in charge.
The outspoken coach has been under pressure at the club in the past few weeks after a disappointing series of results that culminated with the 2-2 draw against Everton at the weekend.
Spurs are currently seventh in the table and at the risk of missing out on a place in the top four (Champions League spots).
