Portuguese coach was not happy after the visit in Antwerp. As you may know, Tottanham saw its first Europa League defeat.
Jose made nine changes after Burnley’s match
Tottenham has a very long season. The Premier League and Europa League will be main priorities but England also has many cup matches. Jose decided to make big changes in the starting line-up. Jose mentioned that big changes happen because all the players deserve a chance to play and show that they are worth playing. Unfortunately to London team fans, Tottenham lost the match in Belgium. After the match, Jose was not impressed and said that from now on choosing the squad will be easy.
Is something wrong with Dele Alli?
Jose gave a chance to Dele Alli. The Midfield started the match from the very first minute. Along with Alli, Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius took respective chances. Alli, Bergwin and Carlos Vinicius got only 45 minutes. They all were substituted on 46th minute. Journalists asked Jose about those players. The coach mentioned that he wants to have 11 substitutions because of the long season. Portuguese coach noted that all the players have to prove their worthiness.
Mourinho said that in the end everything is the coach’s fault. That’s why Jose took the responsibility and said that choosing the starting line-up was a mistake. Journalists also asked him about Gareth Bale. As you may know, Gareth Bale is not in good fitness. That’s why the Welshman was replaced in the 58th minute. Harry Kane entered the pitch but he could not make an impact. Tottenham lost the match and Jose could not believe his eyes.
