Tottenham vs Everton: Mourinho names Cup he is not interested in winning
Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he has no interest in winning the “Fair Play Cup”.
This follows the on-field spat between goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris and Heung-Min Son at the end of the first half of their 1-0 win over Everton on Monday.
Mourinho said the fight should have happened in the dressing room rather than on the pitch, but that was where his disapproval ended.
“A team of good boys, a team of nice boys, the only thing they can win at the end of the season is the Fair Play Cup. Something I have never won and have no interest in winning that.
“You have to have certain characteristics. I don’t like a team without communication in a critical way.
“What happened should not happen on the pitch, it should happen inside the dressing room, but I promise you my winning teams we had big fights, big fights in the team,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
Lloris exchanged angry words with Son at the break, with the two players needing to be separated by Giovani Lo Celso, as the captain continued to criticize his team-mate for failing to track an Everton run just before the interval.
