O'Hara reckons Spurs’ poor form was a sign that change was needed at the north London club.
Jose Mourinho has replaced Maurico Pochettino as Tottenham head-coach at the 'perfect time', according to former midfield star Jamie O'Hara.
Mourinho was appointed as Pochettino’s successor on Wednesday, less than 12 hours after the Argentine’s reign came to an end.
However, O'Hara reckons Spurs’ poor form was a sign that change was needed at the north London club.
"I think it was the right time to go," he told Omnisport. "We've been struggling, the form hasn't been great. I think we've got 24 points from 25 games. We've not been good in the league.
"The form hasn't been good. The Champions League final overshadowed a lot last season in terms of the way we were playing. I think they just looked at it and thought it's time to move on.
"The squad wasn't getting the reaction you'd normally get and it was one of those moments where you thought, you've taken us as far as you can and now let's move on."
