Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs fans react to Mourinho’s post-match comments

Spurs fans have been discussing some quotes from Jose Mourinho following the 2-1 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. 

The Portuguese manager discussed the difference between the two squads on show during Saturday’s early kick-off, saying: “Look at Chelsea they played a World Cup-winning striker up front, England’s second striker on the bench, and Belgium’s second striker in the stands. We had no strikers on the pitch, no strikers on the bench and two in the hospital.” per Alasdair Gold

Spurs are still without Harry Kane after the England international tore his hamstring in early January, but the North London club failed to find a replacement during last month’s transfer window. They have subsequently lost back-up striker Heung-Min Son after he fractured his arm in a win against Aston Villa, which has clearly left the 57-year-old seriously concerned about his lack of options in attack.

Who is more to blame for Spurs' defeat against Chelsea?





Reaction from Spurs fans to Mourinho’s comments on his lack of striking options can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans are seemingly split between criticising the manager for his excuses and praising him for what they believe to have been a ‘dig’ at the owners of the club, perhaps for their lack of backing during the January transfer window.

What do we think?

Spurs were outplayed at Stamford Bridge, registering just three shots on target during the entire game, which can perhaps be put down to their lack of a senior striker. Again, it seems baffling that no striker was brought in during the January transfer window, but perhaps that was out of Mourinho’s control.
