World News – GB – Mourinho admits feeling ‘hurt’ amid tough picks for Tottenham squad


Jose Mourinho says he’s’ deeply injured’ whenever he can’t select one of his Tottenham players, with the manager set to rotate his squad against Royal Antwerp on Thursday evening

Mourinho can name up to 12 Europa League substitutes, but only seven in the Premier League – and nine senior players, including Dele Alli, missed a place in the 18 for Monday’s 1-0 win over Burnley

A number of them including Alli, Serge Aurier, Harry Winks and Davinson Sanchez are expected to feature in Belgium, while Gareth Bale will certainly start after Mourinho claims the forward is almost back to his prime.

Tottenham’s squad are so strong Mourinho was able to leave Eric Dier and Tanguy Ndombele in London as a precaution, but the Portuguese says each of his players deserve to be involved

« I’m going to change [my team tonight] because my team allows me to do it, » said Mourinho « It’s not a change of eleven players, it’s a mix

« Whenever I don’t play with a player, especially this season with the way everyone works, I feel very hurt I’m so sorry because everyone is working hard to play It’s gonna be like this but Tottenham with a very strong team

“Sometimes players make our choices easier when they’re not working hard,” Mourinho added. “But these boys – all of them – make my life easier [because] I have everyone available and in conditions to play

« But they make my life difficult because every time I have to make a selection it hurts me

« In the Premier League, with only a small bench you are leaving a lot of people behind and I must admit that it hurts me a lot

« Sometimes I have the feeling that the decisions are unfair for some players and it is difficult We all work together, the group is really strong where everyone wants to give what they can to the team

« And then picking the players and the teams and leaving the people out is really a bad feeling »

Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, who started the campaign in remarkable form, are expected to rest against Antwerp, but Mourinho warned the Belgians Bale was about to be fully in the know, having returned to Spurs Real Madrid injured last month

« We all have not only the feeling, but also the data, that Bale is coming, » said Mourinho. « He works very hard He’s a great example for everyone

« His demeanor as a team guy is amazing, his demeanor as a Tottenham man is remarkable and he happens I can see just with my eyes but the science is also [that he] is happening I think tonight we can see Gareth at a good level and I hope he can fly « 

Spurs are also without Japhet Tanganga (thigh), while Paulo Gazzaniga, Joe Rodon, Danny Rose and Gedson Fernandes are not eligible

The game will be played behind closed doors after Belgian authorities reinstate the fan ban, but Mourinho insists he feels safe in European away games, despite the rate hike infection across the continent

« I think national teams are the space where even with good organization a lot of traveling and players traveling separately are more dangerous, » he said.
