Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday was enough to secure the Lilywhites a sixth-place finish and a spot in next season’s Europa League (BBC).

However, former Spurs striker, Mido questioned the touchline ‘scenes’ from Jose Mourinho and his backroom staff as they celebrated the Europa League qualification.

When Mourinho took over at the helm in November he inherited a Spurs side that sat in a disappointing 14th spot in the Premier League (TalkSPORT).

Mido took to Twitter to voice his opinion on Mourinho’s celebrations following the game and it is fair to say the Egyptian seemed far from impressed.

The tweet suggests Mido feels the Portuguese manager has fallen from his high standards set during his time at the likes of Chelsea and Inter Milan.

However, after the game, Mourinho admitted that he feels Spurs “belong” in the Champions League, given this is their first year out of the competition since the 2015/16 season (Evening Standard).

I can see where Mido is coming from, to an extent. Looking back a few years you would not expect Mourinho to be in this position – fighting for sixth spot. However, I think he and his staff were just overjoyed to have turned the 14th place Spurs he joined around.
