Spurs manager says his team ‘cannot play like we normally play’ without talismanic striker, who has been ruled out until April
José Mourinho did not want to speak about Harry Kane. The pain of losing his talismanic striker to a hamstring rupture until April was too raw. “If I speak too much, I get depressed,” the Tottenham manager said. “And then you say I’m miserable and in a bad mood. It’s better to speak about things that make me laugh.”
Mourinho wanted to present an image of radiant positivity as he sat down to preview the visit of the Premier League’s runaway leaders, Liverpool, in the Saturday’s teatime kick-off. He was shaved and nicely coiffured, looking good. How was he feeling, one reporter asked. “Amazing,” he replied, flashing a full-beam smile.
