Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho admitted after their 1-0 defeat against RB Leipzig on Wednesday that he would “love it to be July 1,” (via @Dan_KP).
It was a tough evening for Spurs who struggled to create chances and when they did manage to work an opening, nobody was able to put the ball in the net.
The north London outfit are enduring something of an injury crisis at the moment. Son Heung-min was ruled out for the season by Mourinho earlier in the week after fracturing his arm against Aston Villa (@Dan_KP), Harry Kane is out until at least April with a hamstring injury (tottenhamhotspur.com) whilst Moussa Sissoko is also not expected to be back until April either (tottenhamhotspur.com).
The former Chelsea boss admitted after the game that it is a tough time for Tottenham at the moment due to those players being out of action and that because of this he wishes he could skip to pre-season.
“We are speaking about a very difficult situation and if I could, if I could, I would move immediately to the first of July,” Mourinho said (via Independent).
“And the first of July with Harry Kane, with (Moussa) Sissoko, with Son, with (Steven) Bergwijn, with Lucas (Moura), with (Erik) Lamela. I would love to be on the first of July, but I am not.
Loads of Spurs fans agreed with Mourinho’s comments, which perhaps indicates that they do not have high hopes for the rest of the current campaign due to injuries to their star players. Here is what some had to say on Twitter…
Me too Jose 👌
