Jose Mourinho is back to his old self, his new nicely nice approach at Tottenham is over as he gives pundit Des Kelly what for his “real Spurs” comment.
Granted, his side has been ravaged by injuries. Both Son and Kane will be lucky to back this season.
Ndombele and Lamela are just coming back from time on the treatment table.
His front three of Moura, Alli, and Winks were hardly ideal.
Tottenham struggled for 70 of the 90 minutes but eventually showed what even a patched-up side was capable of.
However, when BT Sports pundit Des Kelly asked Mourinho why it took so long for the “real Spurs” to show up in the game, the Portuguese let him have it.
“Come on, what do you mean by the real Spurs? Come on Come on.”
“Let’s be loyal to the boys and tell that they did everything they could do.”
Mourinho insisted he was ecstatic with his players’ effort and concluded with a sly dig at his rivals and his side’s fixture chaos.
“So these guys… fantastic. I cannot be happier to have guys like them with the limitations we have.”
Chelsea drinking sparkling water with lemon watching the game on TV and Saturday morning, thank you very much for the choice Saturday morning we are there again.”
“We can’t even sleep.”
It’s good to finally have you back Jose!
