Mourinho reveals the one thing that worries him about Lo Celso after stellar match

It was arguably the best match in a Tottenham shirt so far for Giovani Lo Celso last night, but it feels as if we have been saying that for a few games now.

The Argentine seems to be adapting to the pace of the Premier League after his move from Real Betis and he ran the show from midfield against Norwich City.

The Spurs summer signing, still technically on loan from Betis, lined up in a central partnership with Harry Winks, although he was given the license to roam forward.

Not only was he creative with his passes and deliveries, but the midfielder also worked tirelessly in defence and closing down the opposition.

Speaking about the player after the match, Mourinho was impressed with how he is coping with the move from Spain to England.

However, he added that he does worry about the player getting injured as the club do not have many solutions or replacements.

He said (Football London): “Giovani is improving game-after-game. Today he was fantastic in everything. I think he is adapting very well to the league, he can play in various positions, he gives us lots of quality, vision, passing, he is improving his offensive game, he is improving his intensity.

“The only thing that worries me is the new life of English football of playing and playing and playing and in this case, he is now playing all the time now because we don’t have different solutions. Even today when Lamela was out, no wingers so Giovani to the wing. It’s hard but I think it’s good experience for all of us, a good experience for the family.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

This sounds like a message to Mr Levy to me. Another creative player needed to replace Eriksen I think.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I never wanted Poch sacked and I definitely didn’t want Jose as his replacement but that’s where we are. The performances, even before Kane’s injury, haven’t been great but Jose isn’t the only one to blame. In fact I’d say the lions share of blame has to sit with Mr Levy. Before Kane’s first injury we needed another striker. Eventually we brought in Llorente but that was half measures. I don’t believe this rubbish about “impossible to bring anyone decent in as they’re just gonna sit on the bench”. Virtually every team out there has more than one striking option of decent quality. Since Kane has picked up various injuries it’s absolutely negligent of Levy not to sort this problem out. How dare he sack the best manager we’ve ever had when he never gave him all the tools to compete!! We need more than cover for Lo Celso but as usual we won’t get it.
