Tottenham Hotspur may have a strong first-team squad at the moment, but they also have a vast array of talent coming through the youth system for Mourinho to choose from.
The Special One has the blessing of an outstanding defender, midfielder, and striker in the academy at the moment, which could make it easier to give them all some game time.
We are, of course, talking about young Japhet Tanganga, Oliver Skipp, and Troy Parrott. Give it another year or so and Spurs could perhaps follow in the footsteps of Chelsea with Tomori, Mount, and Abraham, and look how well that turned out.
Mourinho has given Skipp two cameos in the past two games, while Parrott also made his Premier League debut against Burnley. Unfortunately, Tanganga has not been awarded a single minute under Mourinho as of yet.
The manager claimed in his press conference today that all players who went to Munich in mid-week are part of the squad and there won’t be many doors open for loan moves, although they will analyse the situation.
He said (Football London): “We’ll make the best decision for the players and for the club. At this moment the players that went with us to Munich are part of our squad. We need players and I don’t think there’ll be many doors open for players to get out on loan. If you want to speak about some of the other younger players let’s analyse the situation.”
