Jose Mourinho wants Wolves’ Matt Doherty at Spurs

Not much has been heard about Jose Mourinho's plans at Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League season. However, a report by Sky Sports has claimed that the Portuguese manager is interested in signing Wolves right-back Matt Doherty this summer. Spurs have needed a replacement for Kieran Trippier after he left to join La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid more than a year ago. It can also be recalled that Kyle Walker-Peters was sold to Southampton while the club are presently in talks with AC Milan over a potential move to the San Siro for Serge Aurier. Therefore, wisdom demands that they get a decent right-back to fill the void that has been left in the team.  Doherty, 28, has established himself as one of the key men at Wolves since their return to the Premier League two ye...

Mourinho – Finishing above Arsenal should not be enough for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has stated that the club has to aim higher than finishing above Arsenal, although the feat is always a thing of pride amongst supporters. Well, if you ask for an opinion, I would say this is Mourinho just trying to divert attention from the fact that he hasn't really hit the ground running as Spurs boss and has been average at best. That's my opinion. The North London derby on Sunday saw Spurs come from behind to beat Arsenal 2:1 with the winner coming through a Toby Alderweireld header in the 81st minute. The result pushed Spurs to 8th on the log and two points above Arsenal with three games to go. The opener came through Alexandre Lacazette early in the first half although it didn't last long as Sead Kolasinac assumed the role of a villain...

Mourinho fumes at FA after Dier is handed four-match ban

Jose Mourinho has lashed out at those in power for being out of touch with the game after Spurs defender Eric Dier was hit with a four-match ban by the Football Association. The Three Lions star was also fined £40,000 for climbing into the stands to confront an abusive fan after an FA Cup defeat to Norwich in March, in an altercation that involved Dier's brother. Dier's behavior was subsequently ruled as 'objectively threatening' without any intention of protecting his brother. Spurs boss Jose Mourinho said: “My feeling is that in the majority of the cases, football is not protected by the people that are powerful and doesn’t belong to this world. “That’s simply my feeling. Powerful people – that doesn’t belong to the tribe. And they don’t have the feelings. READ: Real Madri...
