Former Premier League striker: “Lloris looks itchy”

Coach Jose Mourinho suffered the worst series of his career because of two silly mistakes by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the Tottenham match lost to Leipzig in the C1 Cup.

Tottenham lost strongly to RB Leipzig 0-3 in the second leg of the round of C1 Cup and were eliminated in the final with a total score of 0-4. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was the most criticized in this defeat with 2 mistakes leading to Tottenham’s goal.

Hope to reverse the flow of teachers Jose Mourinho quickly became impossible with 2 goals quickly after just 21 minutes in the second leg. Even in the 10th minute, Lloris rushed to the right corner to block Marcel Sabitzer’s not-too-great shot, but finally let the ball slip into his hand and into the net.

11 minutes later, it was Sabitzer who took advantage of Lloris’ mistake to score a 2-0 lead. This time it was a header in the near corner and Lloris even touched but still let the ball slowly roll over the line.

Lloris’s mistake caused Tottenham to score at least 3 goals and keep a clean sheet for the remaining 70 minutes to come from behind. However, they failed to score even one goal and had to accept to leave the game from the eighth round after less than a year to reach the final.

The failure of this face also caused Mourinho to undergo the worst series of his career, not winning 6 consecutive games in all competitions, losing 4 and drawing 2.

On social media, many Tottenham fans have criticized Lloris mercilessly and called on Mourinho to give the opportunity to Paulo Gazzaniga.

Former Tottenham player Marcus Bent was surprised by the poor performance of his former club: “What is going on with Spurs and Lloris?”

Former Premier League champion Chris Sutton even bluntly said: “I’ll say it again …. Lloris’s action looks so itchy.”

Premier League: The 18-year-old talent saved M.U from losing at Old Trafford

18-year-old striker Mason Greenwood saved Manchester United (M.U) a 1-1 draw against Everton at Old Trafford at 17 Premier League on December 15. In the other match, Tottenham under Jose Mourinho continued to fly high with a 2-1 victory at the Wolves field.

After two victories against the big boys Tottenham and rival Man City, M.U welcomed Everton at home to Old Trafford with a burning atmosphere despite playing in the rain. Meanwhile, despite having just revived by a Chelsea win under the guidance of interim coach Duncan Ferguson, Everton was no longer themselves in the previous seasons while trying to avoid the relegation group.

Entering the excitement, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s army easily controlled the game when the visitors took the initiative to play defensively. But ironically, this game is inherently not what Solskjaer wants because M.U is always really dangerous whenever the ball is lower than the opponent. The main evidence is the last 2 wins against Tottenham and Man City. So, in addition to a beautiful direct free-kick from Rashford, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made a brilliant save, the “Reds” attack almost stopped.

In front of the crowd, the speed of Marcus Rashford, Daniel James and Jesse Lingard on the attack almost did not work effectively. In contrast, after being replaced by Marco Silva (who has just been fired), Duncan Ferguson has breathed new life and confidence for Everton. Not only playing fiercely in the defense, “The Toffees” constantly gave warning to M.U with many speedballs and the smooth coordination between Alex Iwobi, Bernard and Richarlison. The visitors’ effort brought a lucky goal thanks to an own goal from Victor Lindelof after a corner kick in the 35th minute.

The attacking plans of M.U are more and more difficult in the second half against opponents determined to preserve the score. The menacing situations of “Red Devils” only stop from outside the penalty area. This forced Solskjaer to adjust the line by launching the 18-year-old Mason Greenwood striker, who left many marks when given the opportunity to rub in the Europa League arena. The seemingly daring decision by the Norwegian military leader brought immediate effect when Greenwood scored a 1-1 equalizer for M.U in the 77th minute with a dangerous finish with his left foot.

One point in the match against Everton despite helping M.U (25 points) stomp in the 6th position, 4 points behind Chelsea (the team ranked 4th) but it will not satisfy Old Trafford’s fans. Because Solskjaer’s army not only showed a flurry of play but also missed the rush to jump to the top when it was going to be a breathtaking Christmas season against Watford, Newcastle, and Burnley.

In the match at the same time, Tottenham had the fourth victory in five matches in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho when beating host Wolves 2-1. The visitors soon took the lead in the eighth minute thanks to Lucas Moura, but Wolves proved why they were ranked above the opponent and had just won tickets to the round of 32 Europa League teams with an equalizer by Adama Traore.

However, when the match seemed to close with a 1-1 draw, Jan Vertonghen became the hero of the London team with a late minute goal to bring 3 points for Tottenham. This victory helped Spurs jump to the fifth position with 26 points to close Chelsea with 3 points less.

Tottenham fired Pochettino coach, Mourinho waited

The Tottenham club decided to fire coach Mauricio Pochettino after a miserable start this season. According to British media sources, “Special person” Jose Mourinho is said to be ready to replace the Argentinian military leader.

The decision to fire was issued by the Tottenham club management on November 19 after Spurs experienced a poor start to the Premier League this season. Currently, after 12 rounds, Pochettino’s army is ranked 14th in the rankings (3 wins, 5 draws, 4 losses), eliminated from the League Cup (Carabao Cup) in September by Colchester United – the team is playing in the fourth division.

Pochettino is the leader who has left the most marks in the history of Spurs since arriving from Southampton in 2014 despite not winning a trophy in 5 and a half years leading the London team.

The biggest success of the 47-year-old Argentine ruling came from the season before Tottenham reached the final of Europe’s most prestigious tournament (Champions League) for the first time but lost to Liverpool 0-2. Besides, during his time in London, Pochettino helped Tottenham won the Champions League four times.

However, Spurs have started a serious decline this season in the Premier League and are now 11 points behind City’s fourth team and are far behind by leaders Liverpool with a gap of 20 points. In the Champions League, Spurs experienced an embarrassing 2-7 home defeat to Bayern Munich in Group B in September. Despite revival to rise to 2nd place and rekindle the body was in the round of 16, but the Tottenham leadership could not keep the patience.

“We had to be reluctant to make this change. Unfortunately, domestic results at the end of last season and the beginning of this season are extremely disappointing. That makes the board must make a difficult decision this time. We have had memorable moments with Mauricio and his coaching team but the team has to do so for the best benefit”, said Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy.

In fact, Pochettino has received admiration not only from Tottenham when the team has achieved certain success despite a tight budget in the context of the club having to build a new stadium at a cost of over 1 billion pounds. Pochettino’s success comes from the youth growing up from the Spurs training room like Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

Pochettino’s departure is foreseen after disagreements with the team leader. After 18 months of not signing a player, Levy finally relaxed his financial position for Tottenham to buy Tanguy Ndombele for a club-record £63 million in July and added Jacani lo Celso (borrowed) and Ryan Sessegnon during the summer transfer window last. However, injuries prevented the trio from being able to contribute to the team, while Pochettino had a headache about Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are no longer in the mood to devote themselves to wanting to leave.

Mourinho is currently expected to take over Tottenham. According to Sky Sports, the Spurs leadership is negotiating with the famous Portuguese leader. Mourinho is currently hungry to return to the hot seat after being sacked 11 months ago by Manchester United.
