Jose Mourinho has revealed that he does not want to leave Tottenham Hotspur after being knocked out of the Europa League this evening by Dinamo Zagreb.
Spurs took a comfortable 2-0 lead to Croatia, knowing that a single away goal would be enough to kill off the tie.
Instead, the Lilywhites looked lazy and sloppy, as if they could walk their way into a European quarter-final. Dinamo Zagreb had other ideas.
Thanks to a hat-trick from Orsic, the home side put themselves ahead in the tie for the first time after forcing Spurs to extra-time.
While Mourinho’s men had a number of golden chances to win the game in the dying minutes, the Zagreb defence held firm and saw out a famous and historic victory.
Now out of Europe, out of the FA Cup and eighth in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho addressed the elephant in the room in his post-match interview. However, he claimed that he was not ready to leave North London.
He said (BT Sport 1 HD – 18/03/21 – 20:57): “We are in a situation I don’t want to go. I don’t think it is for me to go in that direction. I don’t want to say much more. On behalf of my team, in spite of some of my players that they don’t share my emotions, I apologise to the Tottenham supporters.”
