You can either worship the character or hate it, but if José Mourinho did not exist, you would have to invent it. The Portuguese strategist Tottenham does not miss one to stand out from his peer coaches.
As early as Wednesday evening, when the Spurs’ 1-0 defeat on Southampton’s lawn, he received a warning that could not be more justified. Rather, judge.
When he had just made a change – Lamela for Kane, hamstring injury – a quarter of an hour before the end of regular time, the “Soft” approached the opposing bench to spy on the notes of one of the Saints’ assistant coaches. Not all that pretty, Mr. Mourinho!
“I was cheeky with an idiot”
The scene was not lost to the fourth official, who reported it to the man in central black. Who hastened to come and brandish a yellow card under the Lusitanian’s eyes.
Asked about this episode at the post-match press conference, the “Special One” did not shy away: “I think the yellow card was justified because I was cheeky, but I was cheeky with a idiot. I was for some reason. I was, so I deserve the yellow card. “At first glance, only he knows who he was talking about when he mentioned the term” idiot “.
