Tottenham Hotspur managed to return to winning ways last night in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa but the victory will do little to remove the bad taste that Thursday night left in the mouths of all associated with the club.
Spurs took a 2-0 lead to Croatia to face Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League before losing 3-0 on the night and getting knocked out of the competition.
After the game, Spurs captain Hugo Lloris claimed that the performance was a disgrace and seemed to hint that there is no longer the same sense of togetherness in the dressing room (BT).
These were certainly worrying comments for Spurs fans to hear from the experienced Frenchman but it appears that Jose Mourinho was not too bothered.
When asked about the Lloris interview, the Special One claimed that he did not watch or listen to it, instead choosing to focus on his job rather than reactions to the defeat.
He said (Football London): “I didn’t watch it. I didn’t listen to it. I closed myself in my shell as I was saying before, I don’t need to read or listen or to watch to have a personal reaction. I am a very mature guy and I have emotional stability.
“I don’t need to read or to listen. I was not interested, I was interested in analysing and thinking about the best approach I could have with my players, and to focus on my job rather than reactions after the game.”
