Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have been buzzing over a tweet that was recently posted by The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare in which he relayed some recent comments from Spurs boss Jose Mourinho on Giovani Lo Celso.
This comes after Lo Celso played the full 90 minutes of Spurs’ 2-0 UEFA Europa League win over Royal Antwerp on Thursday evening.
Per Eccleshare, Mourinho has shared praise for the Argentinian’s performance, saying: “Gio showed he’s back tonight.”
Perhaps it’s no surprise that Mourinho was seemingly impressed by the £31.5m-rated midfielder’s display versus Royal Antwerp, as he scored Tottenham’s second goal of the game and earned a stellar overall WhoScored rating of 9.44 for his performance on Thursday evening – the highest overall WhoScored rating earned by any Lilywhites player in this game.
So, what did these Tottenham Hotspur fans make of Mourinho’s comments on Lo Celso?
Jose: "Gio showed he's back tonight." #THFC
