Jose Mourinho has called on the fans to give Tottenham a special night of support during the match against RB Leipzig.

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has stated that his side have shown great fighting spirit in recent times and are well deserving of the applaud from the fans for it.

Spurs were held to a draw by Southampton in their earlier meet up in the fourth round of the FA Cup. In the replay, despite lagging behind for the better part of the game, they managed to turn the tie in their favor and proceed to the next round of the competition.

Against Aston Villa in their last Premier League outing, again, Tottenham managed to earn all three points with a goal in the dying minutes.

They now await the Champions League Round of 16 tie against RB Leipzig later tonight.

And, as Football London reports, Jose Mourinho wants the fans to celebrate his team’s extraordinary perseverance by giving them a special show of support.

“Resilience means a lot in football and this group have recently shown they possess it in abundance. Our last home game, the important FA Cup fourth-round replay win over Southampton, was another example of that.

“That’s why I ask all of you for special support for my boys tonight when we welcome RB Leipzig.

“We want to fight and I really feel the boys deserve everything you can give them. That’s why I ask you for a special night of support.”
