Tottenham: Spurs fans react to Mourinho remarks

Image for Tottenham: Spurs fans react to Mourinho remarks

Spurs fans were full of praise for new manager Jose Mourinho after his tactical change helped Spurs come from 2-0 down against Olympiakos to win 4-2 and secure qualification to the knockout stages. 

In an interview with BT Sport (via HotspurRelated), Mourinho apologised to Eric Dier, who he substituted for Christian Eriksen early in the game after Spurs went 2-0 down at home to the Greek side. The change proved effective as Spurs were able to turn the match around, and the much-maligned midfielder was even able to pick up an assist, curling in a stunning free-kick which Harry Kane nodded home to secure the win.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss certainly had his doubters when he took the Spurs job last week following Mauricio Pochetttino’s sacking, but it seems as if fans are warming to the Portuguese manager following his first two games in charge.

Will Jose Mourinho win trophies with Spurs?





Reaction from Spurs fans to Mourinho’s post-match comments and the win over Olympiakos can be seen in the tweets below.

Spurs fans were clearly delighted with Mourinho following the game and commended his excellent tactical change that helped them turn the game around.

What do we think?

Mourinho has always been a top-class manager, but his persona at Spurs seems completely different from the arrogant one we saw so often at Manchester United.

His tactical change proved very effective but he was quick to praise the team and apologise to Eric Dier following his substitution which demonstrates real class.

Spurs fans will be hoping he can continue his perfect start when they face Bournemouth at home on Saturday.
