Mourinho believes Lo Celso is back to his best

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho says Lo Celso has proven that he's back to his best after his impressive performance in the Londoners' Europa League home 2 nil win against Royal Antwerp ion Thursday night. The Argentina international was on the scoresheet, increasing his tally to four goals in the competition. His goal in the 70th minute ensured that Spurs finished first in Group J and head into the knockout stages with their eyes on silverware this term. The Argentine didn't just score on the night but provided more key passes (4), completed more passes in the opposition half (34), had more touches (72), and tackles (3) than any of his teammates. He also helped out in winning possession on several occasions. The performance against Royal Antwerp can easily pass for the 24...

Mourinho urges Lo Celso to improve physically

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has called on Giovani Lo Celso to improve his match fitness so that he can showcase his amazing talent. The Argentine was impressive for Spurs in Thursday night's 3:1 Europa League win away to Bulgarian outfit Ludogorets. The Argentine was on hand to score a tap in to seal the victory although Claudiu Keseru's goal seemed to be the beginning of a comeback. The goal on the night was Lo Celso's third goal this season after a brace in the 7:2 thrashing of Maccabi Haifa in the play-off round. It was his fifth start this season and his performance is a pointer that he's gradually getting back to his best. However, Lo Celso has started just 1 game in the Premier League after struggling with a hamstring injury and Mourinho was honest in his assessment of the ...

Mourinho curious to see reactions at Madrid after Bale’s winner for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has expressed curiosity over the reactions at Real Madrid after Gareth Bale scored the winner for the North Londoners in the 2:1 defeat of Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League on Sunday. The Welshman came off the bench to score his first goal on his return to the Premier League for a second spell with Spurs which ensured that they amassed maximum points from the game and currently sit second on the log. Bale returned to Spurs in the summer on a season-long loan from Real Madrid after some torrid years where he fell out of favor at Santiago Bernabeu and was subjected to heavy criticisms from fans. Although he has had a slow start to life on his return to England and to the club where he attained world-class status, the Portuguese boss ...

Villa and Spurs on the beat with biggest PL Matchday 4 shockers

No one saw Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur putting six past Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's Manchester United or Dean Smith's Aston Villa putting seven past defending champions Liverpool. However, this was the case in the last two games on Matchday 4 of the 2020/21 Premier League season. This season hasn't been short of goals with lots of goals being scored thus far and shocking upsets being mounted too. Who would have thought that Everton and Aston Villa would be the only two teams with a 100% record at this point in the season? It's still early days but Carlo Ancelotti and Dean Smith deserve some credit for the performance of their teams thus far.

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...
