Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is accepting the current intensity of the game, instead of constantly complaining like his teammates Guardiola and Klopp.
* Tottenham – Arsenal: 23:30 Sunday, December 6, Hanoi time.
“By the way, we played four games a week and none of our fellow coaches were sad,” Mourinho said on December 5, recalling that Tottenham had played eight games 18 days earlier in the season.
This season, not less than once, coach Pep Guardiola has complained about Man City’s schedule. He believes that students are being executed, and will soon lose the joy of playing football if they have to kick every three days. Jurgen Klopp also sympathizes with coach Man City, and believes that Liverpool students will be in danger if they have to shoot with momentary intensity. The German coach even predicted that the home team will not have enough 11 players when the season ends, due to the density of three days per game.
However, Mourinho implied that no team had to shoot with the density of his Tottenham at the beginning of the season. “When these coaches go through this intensity,” he said.
Due to the thick stone at the beginning of the season, Tottenham plays more than one match from Manchester United or Man City, Newcastle. Both Manchester clubs went deep into the European Cup last season, so they were particularly special in the opening round of the Premier League (Man City v Aston Villa, Man United v Burnley). Newcastle have eight players with Covid-19, so the match against Aston Villa in the 11th round of the “Selection” was also postponed.
Although the home team played far above expectations, taking the top spot in the group before the round this weekend, Mourinho was still not satisfied because Tottenham had to play continuously without delay or leaving any match schedule. “There are four teams playing one game less than their opponents, and I do not know when they will make up for those games. When will Burnley, Man United, Man City and maybe Newcastle, Aston Villa start? It is difficult to accept this, it affects “I’m trying to find an answer this week, but no one is helping me,” he asked.
In the 11th round of the Premier League today, Tottenham will host Arsenal – a traditional rival in the North London derby. However, Mourinho said that this confrontation is not as significant as before.
He said: “In the old days, beating Arsenal meant a lot to the fans, because our position compared to Arsenal was not good. But now we are at the top of the table, things are not like before. I must not forget that Spurs and Arsenal When you go to Tottenham, you have to understand the importance of the team, the culture of the club and share the prices, the rule in this place with the “fans”.
