The possibility of the club sacking the Italian has sparked widespread speculation. Nonetheless, Doherty, who departed the club in January for Atletico Madrid on a free transfer, defended the Italian.
“I hope he stays for a long time at Tottenham,” he told reporters.
“He’s an unbelievable coach, an unbelievable manager. He won’t say anything in the press that he won’t say to his players, he’s completely honest with his players, has the passion for the whole club.
“I hope Tottenham stick by him and hold onto him for as long as possible, he’s one of the best managers of all time.”
