The Mirror suggest that some Tottenham Hotspur players believe their manager José Mourinho’s criticism is ‘unfair’.
Players are now ‘annoyed’ by his comments as they see them as an effort to deflect the blame away from himself once again.
In their opening fixture for the 2020/21 Premier League on Sunday, Spurs were massively underwhelming as they fell to a 1-0 loss to Everton.
Indeed, the Toffees were the best side throughout the game, particularly in the center of the park.
A clearly far-from-satisfied Mourinho believed after the game that his side was lax in the way they pushed the ball, allowing their opponents to simply play through them time and again.
His remarks, however, seemingly did not go down well in the Tottenham dressing room.
Mourinho, manager of Tottenham, now faces a ‘dressing room uproar’ after publicly questioning the ‘lazy’ performance of his squad against for men of Carlo Ancelotti.
