Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that Tottenham deserved to share the spoils with a brilliant Aston Villa.
Instead they ran away with the match. Spurs snatched a late winner to help them stay in the race for CL spots. The match ended 3-2 in favour of Spurs but Jose admitted that Villa were unlucky to leave with nothing.
“I thought we deserved to win but I think they did not deserve to lose. Villa played to win,” the Portuguese coach said.
Mourinho was also astounded why Bergwijn did not claim harder for the penalty.
“Steven Bergwijn, I don’t know if I call him naive, or too honest – the referees tell us ‘pre-match don’t ask for anything, don’t surround me, don’t do the motion of the screen’. The action was there and it was a question of to be or not to be and clearly it was.”
Mourinho also admitted that City’s ban has blasted open the race to the top 5 for CL spots!
“[It’s] Not just for us. A window opens for many teams,” Mourinho added.
“What seemed far, now the fifth place is not far. Arsenal, Everton, Sheffield United, Wolves… everyone will feel they have the chance.”
