Jose Mourinho has claimed that he is still none the wiser with regards to whether Gedson Fernandes will be remaining at Spurs until the end of the season.
Tottenham originally signed the Benfica man on loan in an 18-month deal last January, meaning that he was supposed to remain in North London until the summer of 2021.
However, Fernandes has found minutes few and far between this season, with Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Dele Alli, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and more all seemingly above him in the pecking order.
Despite this, the young Portuguese midfielder was handed a rare start by Mourinho in the FA Cup clash against Marine this weekend, with Gedson putting in an energetic performance.
Mourinho said this on the matter (Football London): “I don’t know. I don’t know.
“If he stays I’m happy. Again, from a selfish point of view, I’m very happy if he stays because he’s a good player and when we need him we know that we have some quality coming from him.
“Of course, it’s a pity that he can’t be in the Europa League list. We’ve played already nine matches in the Europa League.
“I would imagine that playing in the Europa League would be a much happier situation for him. But in the selfish look at it, I would like him to stay but again we are not selfish and we think of the players.
“In this case, we also think about the father club so we have just to wait.”
