Mourinho’s Tottenham slumped to another listless performance on Sunday
For way too long now, Jose Mourinho has cut a foregone and despondent figure on the football pitch. And its been down to his own making with the Tottenham manager way too eager to engage in unceremonious comments.
It’s not only Mourinho’s decadent nature which has not gone down well with the ardent viewers of the Premier League. The Tottenham coach has made for an extremely tough personality to defend given his mundane and sorry brand of football.
It cost Tottenham once again with the side slipping to a sordid 3-1 defeat with Manchester United. Despite going 1-0 up through a Son strike, Tottenham failed to control the match and close out the affair as they were torn apart in the second half.
Redknapp Miffed With Mourinho
Jamie Redknapp who was previously associated with Tottenham was in particular irked with Mourinho’s brand of football. Redknapp hit out at Mourinho and was quick to hammer home the point that the club was going nowhere under him.
“Jose is looking at it and trying to blame everybody else, he has to take responsibility. When you’re a good manager, you organise your team to get that result whatever it takes. A great manager would find a way to get them organised,” Redknapp said.
“What Jose has also done in this period is he’s made them a really tough watch. Too often I watch this side and there’s no flair or excitement. I don’t think this is a bad squad of players, I’ve said it before and I stand by it.”
Mourinho Hits Out At Ole
Mourinho meanwhile expressed his dismay at Ole’s comments ensuing the defeat. Ole had said he was disgusted with Son’s dive on the night and would not feed his son had he indulged in the same antics.
Mourinho in reply had gone onto say he would never let his son go hungry.
“First of all, let me tell you something. I’m very, very surprised that after the comments that Ole made on Sonny, you don’t ask me about it. Because – and I told Ole already this because I met him just a few minutes ago – if it’s me, telling that player A B or C from another club, if it was my son I wouldn’t give him dinner tonight, what would be the reaction of that? It’s very very sad,” Mourinho said.
“I think it’s really sad that you don’t ask me about that. It’s sad you don’t have the moral honestly to treat me the same way as you treat others. In relation to that, I just want to say that Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole. I am a father. I think as a father you have always to feed your kids.”
Doesn’t matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal. I’m very very disappointed. As we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese and is cheese. I told Ole already what I think about his comments and I’m very disappointed that in five, six seven questions you ignore the dimensions of that comment.
