Mourinho uses Portuguese media to fire cheeky dig at Bruno Fernandes | teamtalk.com

Date published: Wednesday 29th July 2020 3:49 Jose Mourinho has blasted former club Manchester United and aimed a jibe at Bruno Fernandes over the amount of penalties they have been awarded. The Red Devils found a rich vein of form over the latter and punctuated 2019/20 season. Solskjaer’s side remained unbeaten in the Premier League since a 2-0 home defeat to Burnley on January 22 – form which secured a third-placed finish.That will bring with it a return to the Champions League next season – and a guaranteed £120m windfall. A big part of their revival has been the astonishing form shown by Fernandes. Since arriving in an initial £46.6m deal, Fernandes has netted eight goals and added a further seven assists.

Jose Mourinho predicts ‘small changes’ as he digs out transfer rivals

Date published: Saturday 25th July 2020 10:03 Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says his club will not react to rival clubs’ spending sprees in the transfer market this summer and will remain “balanced”. Mourinho’s former club Chelsea have already splashed the cash with the arrivals of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner and they are reportedly in talks to sign Kai Havertz, which would be another big-money move, while the likes of Manchester City and United could also spend this summer. In contrast Spurs, having spent over £100million last summer, are not expected to do any major business, with Mourinho keen on a few adjustments to his squad. A key element to their summer will also be to keep hold of their best players, something Mourinh...

Mourinho uses Jurgen Klopp example as he makes Tottenham trophy vow

Jose Mourinho is adamant he can deliver trophy success to Tottenham – but has warned it may take time to mould his side. The Portuguese firebrand was brought to the club to replace Mauricio Pochettino in November in a controversial deal. It’s been a struggle since with results not going as expected. Spurs have a battle just to qualify for the Europa League and face a potentially-decisive clash with Arsenal on Sunday. In his defence, he inherited a tricky situation at the club – a squad reaching the end of its cycle and hurting from a Champions League final loss. Furthermore, £100million of signings have failed to fire and they have suffered a host of injury problems to key players.   READ MORE ~ Five reasons why Tottenham must sack Jose Mourinho   Mourinho, who is one of t...

Mikel Arteta tees up north London derby with Jose Mourinho message

Date published: Friday 10th July 2020 12:19 Jose Mourinho is still a world-class manager and could be the right man to end Tottenham’s wait for a trophy, according to Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta. The pair will meet in opposite dugouts on Sunday afternoon as the Gunners make the short trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the second north London derby of the Premier League season. Arsenal rallied from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Spurs at the Emirates Stadium back in September when Unai Emery was in charge of the hosts and Mauricio Pochettino was the away manager. Both clubs saw their fortunes drop off soon after, with Arteta replacing Emery just a month on from Mourinho being announced as Pochettino’s successor in ...

Date published: Wednesday 8th July 2020 4:43 Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says chairman Daniel Levy has a special plan in place for Kyle Walker-Peters, but is also not against seeing the on-loan defender leave. Spurs sent Walker-Peters to Southampton in January and he has played five of eight Premier League games since. The 23-year-old particularly impressed in Sunday’s 1-0 win over deposed champions Manchester City. After Che Adams’ opener, the Saints defence stood strong amid a barrage of City pressure.

Jose Mourinho takes swipe at Arsenal trolling as he fires up Tottenham

Date published: Monday 6th July 2020 8:44 Jose Mourinho has hit back at Arsenal’s efforts to ridicule Tottenham’s defeat at Sheffield United on social media by claiming the Gunners have little to crow about. The Gunners poked fun at their north London rivals on Facebook when they posted highlights of their FA Cup win at Bramall Lane last weekend. The post was captioned: “It’s not easy beating Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.”Mourinho believes the post says more about Arsenal than it does his club. He also suggests the struggles of others would not be the source of joy for them if they were near the top of the league. “I think if they were top of the league or fighting for top four in a really good moment they would...

Date published: Thursday 2nd July 2020 8:51 Jose Mourinho refused to give let his tongue get away with him, but did have a few choice words after Tottenham’s VAR controversey. Spurs were denied what appeared a perfectly good goal when VAR chalked off Harry Kane’s apparent equaliser at Bramall Lane.With Sheffield United 1-0 after Sander Berge’s opener, the disallowed strike proved costly as Spurs fell to a 3-1 defeat. With Kane celebrating what he thought was the leveller, VAR then chalked the goal off; Lucas Moura having been adjudged to have handled the ball as he fell. But replays showed the decision to be harsh, with Moura knowing nothing about the contact and the ball ricocheting off him as he fell. It was no su...
