Jose Mourinho was left frustrated with Spurs performance in the Europa League that saw them not register a single shot on target in the second half. Antwerp were the deserved winners as Spurs were second best in every department prompting Mourinho to make a quad substitution at half-time.
Speaking after the game the Spurs manager said, “I would like to have made 11 changes at half-time. I don’t want to analyse individuals. I don’t like to do that. We have a big squad with lots of good players. It’s my responsibility to give them opportunities to play and catch the chance with both hands and be in condition to ask for more. And tonight my future choices are going to be very easy.
I prefer to praise the opponents because they played a magnificent game and not to blame ourselves because we played an awful game. But I have to do both at the same time. Blame me because I am the boss and it is my responsibility who plays. But I have to admit that the game confirmed to me a few things, opened other question marks and will help me in the future with my decisions. I’m also learning every day.“
Mourinho, who has been active on Instagram lately has now taken the opportunity to express his feeling on Tottenham’s performance.
