Fans of Aston Villa have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed the comments of Tottenham Hostpur manager, Jose Mourinho, who heaped praise on Dean Smith’s side.
Speaking after Spurs’ recent 3-0 win over Leeds United, Mourinho quickly turned his attention to Villa, who Tottenham face in their next Premier League fixture, stating that Villa are his ‘favourite team in the Premier League’ at present, as he finds the club enjoyable to watch, as well as appreciating the talents of their players and manager.
The Birmingham-based team have indeed impressed so far in the Premier League this season, with Smith’s side currently sitting in seventh place, just three points behind Tottenham in fourth, and just seven points off of top-of-the-table Liverpool.
And, after Mourinho’s comments were relayed on Twitter by Amazon Prime Video Sport, fans of Villa flocked to have their say on the 57-year-old’s remarks, with many lightheartedly suggesting he could be eyeing up a move to the club.
Do you think Mourinho's words are simply mind games?

“A massive compliment from one of the best all-time managers in the game, appreciate that”
“He knows a wealthy owner when he sees one”
