José Mourinho refused to be drawn into discussions about whether or not Harry Kane and Son Heung-min type the very best duo he has managed as Tottenham ready for his or her match towards Crystal Palace on Sunday. As a substitute, Mourinho affirmed his two most prolific attacking gamers had been “world class”.
“I don’t like to match gamers, and a few weeks in the past I noticed in some particular media like I had chosen my all-time crew,” Mourinho mentioned. “It’s utterly faux as a result of it’s one thing I all the time refuse to do. By no means.
“I owe a lot to my gamers that I’d by no means say: ‘That is my favorite keeper, that is my favorite centre-back, that is my favorite striker.’ By no means. I by no means try this. I don’t examine gamers. I’m simply grateful to gamers that gave all the things for me. Sonny and Kane, with out evaluating them with different gamers, they’re, I repeat, world-class gamers. World-class gamers. I’m not telling something totally different than that.”
Kane has eight league objectives and 12 assists and he has engineered eight of Son’s 10 objectives. The standard of their performances and synergy on the pitch have helped to drive Tottenham to the highest of the league, culminating in Mourinho being introduced on Friday as supervisor of the month for November. It’s the fourth time he has achieved the excellence.
Though Mourinho is infamous for occasionally talking about his achievements and titles in singular type, he notably selected to recognise his squad when requested to touch upon his newest distinction. It was a mirrored image of the sturdy collective tradition he has succeeded in fostering at Tottenham, which he’s understandably targeted on sustaining.
“It isn’t about me, it’s in regards to the crew and if it was about me it must be the teaching employees of the month as a result of with out the opposite guys it will not be potential. This sort of factor I by no means really feel it as a person award, I all the time really feel that it belongs to the crew and the outcomes we did. If we don’t have three victories and one draw at Stamford Bridge in November, for positive we wouldn’t have any likelihood to win it. It’s in regards to the crew.”
