Mourinho Slams Spurs Players, Referee After Derby Defeat To Arsenal 

Jose Mourinho slammed his Tottenham Hotspur players and referee Michael Oliver following Sunday’s  north London derby defeat at Arsenal.

Mourinho accused some of his stars of ‘hiding’ during a poor first half – and also included himself in his scathing assessment – before criticising Oliver for awarding a second-half penalty.

Goals from Martin Odegaard and a penalty from Alexandre Lacazette cancelled out Erik Lamela’s brilliant opener.

The Argentine was later sent off for a foul on Arsenal’s left-back Kieran Tierney.

And Commenting on the performance of his players and the controversial penalty awarded to Arsenal, Mourinho said:”The only two things that were positive in the first half were an amazing goal and the result – 1-1 was not a fair reflection of that first half where they dominated us. We were very poor.

“Some important players hiding. I’m not even going in direction of individuals. I’m as guilty for that first-half as the players. 

“People hiding themselves, no intensity, no passing and moving. We were poor. As simple as that.”

“I don’t want to call it a penalty, because is an offence to the penalty. That was a mistake by Oliver.

“Players get tired, coaches get tired, maybe referees get tired too. My record with Michael Oliver on penalties with Chelsea, United and Tottenham is unlucky.”

    Loool, Oloje Moriranwo will always find someone else to blame after defeat. He will slam his players, the referee, the opponents, the fans. The players’ boot sizes, the weather, the jersey is too tight, everybody is against him, his is having problems at home with his wife, Brexit, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Covid-19, haba!
    He is never, ever to blame only. He will never take sole responsibility when things don’t work. His tactics are always 100% correct, in his own mind. Wish he would humbly give credit to another person who defeats him. Someone or something is always to blame!
    Yes, he is a good coach. Ambitious and hungry for success. But his arrogance is out of this world.
