Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho on a pre- match press conference instead Harry Kane did nothing wrong. After he was criticised for how he won a penalty in their 2-1 win over Brighton in the EPL last weekend.
During the press conference ahead of Thursdays Europe league game away to Ludogorets said.
“Harry Kane was in a position to control the ball and Lallana came in a reckless fashion. Why are you saying it is clever?” Mourinho said. “Clever is taking the ball and scoring a goal. It’s a foul.”
José added: “I thought it was a direct free-kick but VAR said it was inside the box because it was on the line. What are we talking about being clever?
“Harry Kane just wants to score goals. Lallana was reckless.
“Why are you speaking about us? Speak about Liverpool, Manchester United, City and others with ‘clever’ players and getting penalties. Don’t speak about Harry Kane.”
Tottenham will be without the likes of Sergio Reguilon, Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier as the travel to Bulgaria after the trio missed training on Wednesday.
“Reguilon is ill but not Covid, just ill,” said Mourinho. “Lamela was having a little problem for quite a few weeks and we decided it was the time to stop.
“Aurier has a little problem, nothing important.”
