Mourinho’s ‘big disappointment’ reaction
Former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho was typically optimistic after being told he was a “huge disappointment” at his last club.
Mourinho joined AS Roma from Serie A last summer and fueled expectations the club could be in contention for titles with the ‘special’ in charge. But things haven’t quite worked out as expected as Mourinho’s side sit sixth in the table – 15 points behind AC Milan at the top.
And that has led to criticism of Mourinho, with former AS Roma manager Zdenek Zeman criticizing the ‘quality of the football shown’ at his old club. But Mourinho has reacted in typical fashion as he highlighted his past success.
West Ham talking points
Son Heung-min scored twice and was also involved in Kurt Zouma’s own goal as Spurs scored four of five Premier League wins to close the gap on fourth-placed Arsenal.
Said Benrahma pulled one back for the Hammers when he lost his marker after a corner to convert. The result puts the race for the Top 4 on for good as Harry Kane and Son team up again.
It was a game full of talking points with Mirror Football covering all the big moments.
Conte leaves Man Utd ’embarrassed’
Manchester United were ’embarrassed’ after ‘sniffing’ at Antonio Conte before hiring Ralf Rangnick as interim manager, Mirror football Darren Lewis believes.
After Sunday’s 3-1 win over West Ham, Spurs “can continue to dare to dream of salvaging a Champions League place from the ashes of a chaotic season” – largely thanks to Conte’s good work. Spurs are now a point above United in the Premier League table, currently making them the more likely of the two clubs to secure a place in the top four.
And Darren Lewis has spoken out after a great result for Conte and his side against rivals West Ham.
