The Tottenham coach was uninterested in responding to questions
Dealing with Jose Mourinho is an excruciating affair. It’s a throbbing headache, one which increases more so when fixtures stop swinging in his favour with his recent outlandish comments being a testament to that.
Lashing out at his players after his side’s 1-1 draw against Newcastle United, Jose Mourinho was at his petulant best once again, Quizzed about how his players had reacted to his comments, Mourinho decided to evade the question at hand by blaming journalists of their coverage of the situation.
Mourinho Snaps Back At Journalists
“I’m not going to answer your question because for the whole week, everybody spoke about it, everybody took for granted what they were writing, what they were saying, so I don’t feel comfortable to come five or six days later to make comments about something people write and speak like if they know everything,” Mourinho said.
“I don’t think I want to go in that direction. I prefer to play or to let you play your game, I mean the media in general, I let you play the game we’ve had during the week and I just want to play our game at 1pm. I don’t want to play that game.”
Mourinho Refuses To Take Question On Toby
Mourinho was least interested in taking questions about Toby Alderweireld as well. The Tottenham coach was quizzed about why he had lied about the CB missing his COVID test when reports suggested otherwise.
“I can’t clarify and I can’t clarify because you spoke about it for the whole week,” he said. “You play the game, enjoy the game during the whole week and now I want to enjoy my game at 1pm and now I’m here to answer to the question that you already answered for the whole week,” the Tottenham supremo replied.
“There is nothing for me to clarify. If I have to clarify, I clarify with my people and not with the people who knows everything and wrote and spoke and sold papers and with audiences on radios and TVs.
