Tottenham Hotspur had to make do with a point against Manchester United on Friday.
Spurs had been 1-0 up in the game after Steven Bergwijn put them ahead, albeit thanks to considerable help from David de Gea between the Red Devils’ sticks, but United found a way back into the game thanks to a Bruno Fernandes penalty.
In the end, it was the visitors who dominated the ball – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had 61% possession compared to the Lilywhites’ 39% – and they may feel unfortunate not to pick up all three points. Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, took the opportunity to blame injuries on his side’s inability to threaten throughout the 90 minutes.
Will Jose Mourinho be at Tottenham in a year's time?
Alasdair Gold retweeted his comments, and they have attracted the attention of plenty of Spurs supporters – it is fair to say they are far from happy with his words. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best responses below.
Constant excuses with him….Jesus.

Is he mad? Lucas should be replacing Bergwijn, not other way around.

This doesn’t bode well! I’d have Bergwijn, Lamela and Sissoko all starting ahead of Lucas on the right.

Ndombele or Sessegnon? Are they not offensive players? So many excuses. Get rid of Jose

A very strong bench in terms of defensive options- yet he didn’t use any of them despite throwing everything into defence for the entire second half.
Getting baffled by him to be honest.
