Some Spurs fans blast commentator for false claim regarding the club’s new signings

Some Spurs fans on social media have called out talkSPORT commentator Tim Long for tweeting out that none of Tottenham Hotspur’s new signings cited Jose Mourinho as one of the reasons they joined the club.

Tottenham were one of the most active clubs in the transfer window this time around, bringing in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius.

All six signings talked about their desire to play under a head coach like Mourinho as being one of the reasons that bought them to Spurs (all their first interviews can be watched on the club’s official youtube channel).

Reports from reliable sources like The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick have also revealed that Mourinho was instrumental in helping the club to get some of the deals over the line.

Tim Long tweeted out that all of Manchester United’s signings were tempted to sign for the Red Devils after holding conversations Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.

He then bizarrely claimed that Tottenham’s and Chelsea’s signings did not say the same about Mourinho and Frank Lampard respectively.

Needless to say, this did not sit well with Spurs fans, who blasted him on social media:

Tim Long seems to be a mouthpiece for the Glazers because the very idea that a 33-year-old Edison Cavani would need “convincing” to move to Old Trafford is ridiculous, considering no one else seemed to want him. Even if he wants to create a false narrative around United’s transfer activity, to involve Tottenham in that and to make a claim that can be falsified with a mere google search, is bizarre, to say the least.
