‘I don’t want to replace my players’ – Mourinho sticks up for his attacking Spurs talent

Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Jose Mourinho, has defended his attacking talent after their poor showing against Bournemouth last night.

The Special One believes that the players themselves are good enough, despite their struggles in front of goal since the Premier League restart.

Mourinho went on to reveal that he does not want to replace his attacking players with the summer transfer window looming.

Tottenham failed to register a single shot on target against relegation battlers Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium last night, despite fielding some of the best forwards in the league.

England captain Harry Kane, superstar winger Heung-min Son, playmaker Erik Lamela, and new signings Giovani Lo Celso and Steven Bergwijn all started the game against the Cherries.

However, Spurs were unable to seriously threaten the Bournemouth goal across the 90 minutes, despite Harry Kane looking as though he should have been awarded a penalty early on in the match.

In his post-match press conference, this morning, Alasdair Gold reports that Mourinho said: “Our attacking players are very good. We cannot get better players than what we have. One thing is not scoring goals and the other is that the players are not good enough. They are good enough. I don’t want to replace my players.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Something seriously needs to change at THFC, last night was yet another dismal and disappointing display of passionless, predictable and frustrating individual performances in a clearly dis-unified team which looks bereft of both ideas and inspiration and self belief. Spurs have sadly slipped to a level of painfully hard to watch mediocrity, as the soul of the clubs identity and its philosophy seems profoundly lost. The question for me is just how far must we plummet as a football club before the board finally wake up and take the necessary actions to restore the hope of being properly competitive? At the moment we are playing some of the worst football of all the clubs in the top flight, and I think come Sunday we may just end up with even further humiliation from a highly probable beating at the hands of our closest rivals, things are not looking good!
