Mourinho – on the match with nine goals: “It was a mouse and a cat”

Philosophical reflections of the Portuguese on the mad match with Everton.

Jose Mourinho summed up the FA Cup game against the Toffee. Tottenham bounced back 1: 3 and 3: 4, but lost 4: 5. The Portuguese noted that all were solved by simple mistakes in the performance of his players.

“On the one hand, I liked it, on the other, no. I liked the way we acted with the ball.

We created, we had a great movement. We managed to score goals and create chances. Showed great character to deal with incredible mistakes.

The problem is, in attacking football, you win when you don’t make more mistakes than you make. We scored four goals. This was not enough.

Everyone hurts now. The feeling that we showed courage, were good with the ball, took the lead – 1: 0, but after five minutes – a mistake, mistake, mistake, goal, goal, goal.

We resisted, but there were more mistakes. Mouse and cat. The mouse is our mistakes, and the cat is us “, – summed up the coach.


Tottenham remain in two more cup tournaments. The team will play the League Cup final against Manchester City and begin their journey to the Europa League playoffs.
