NFF To Challenge England For PSV Starlet, Noni Madueke

Jose Mourinho Furiously Rips Into Spurs Team After Royal Antwerp Defeat

    Jose Mourinho slammed his Tottenham team following their 1-0 defeat to Royal Antwerp, claiming he now has "easy choices" when naming his side. Spurs lost 1-0 to Antwerp in the Europa League as Mourinho made wholesale changes, drafting in the likes of Dele Alii and Gareth Bale. But Dele and Bale failed to complete 90 minutes as the Englishman was replaced at the break while the Welshman lasted just 58 minutes. That's the second time the midfielder has been substituted at half-time as he failed to take his chance to impress Mourinho. And speaking after the game, the Portuguese manager pulled no punches during a scathing rant. When asked about Dele's performance, he replied: "I don't want to analyse individually.
