“Mourinho is ill” – These Tottenham fans are losing it over surprise half time substitution

Loads of Tottenham fans are absolutely spitting blood after Tanguy Ndombele was subbed off by Jose Mourinho at half time against Southampton.

The Frenchman has often found it hard to establish himself at Spurs under Mourinho, and it remains to be seen if this is behind the manager’s thinking again here.

Despite a strong first half showing, Ndombele was replaced at the break by Giovani Lo Celso, and many Tottenham fans were not at all happy with the decision.

In fairness, however, Lo Celso then did well with his involvement for Spurs’ second goal through Son Heung-min that put them 2-1 up against the Saints.

For now, however, this lot are assuming the worst as it seems like Mourinho might once again be picking fights with quality players, just as he did with Paul Pogba at Manchester United, Juan Mata at Chelsea, and Iker Casillas at Real Madrid…

    Because NDombele is just SO SLOW. Just ambles round the pitch.

    Spurs were far better with Lo C playing in the 2nd half.

      God bless you! How a lot don’t see what’s wrong on the pitch baffles me.The weakest link in Tottenham now is the attacking midfield and the quicker they get a great midfielder there with lo celso,the better.Its not that ndombele cannot play but at the level of Tottenham competing with the very best,players like ndombele,sissoko won’t give the cutting edge performance a team like Tottenham deserve.

        Exactly @impresario. Ndombele is a good player no doubt but making experiments to be fit in this kind of competitive match, i wouldn’t support. To me, is like he’s too heavy and not flexible. GLC coming in was a best option which was proven. Ndombele can start again on Tuesday for the league cup. Tottenham lost the first match and there shouldn’t be an excuse for losing the 2nd match. Good luck to all of them cos it was a complete team work.
        In fairness Ndombele fired them up to score the 1st goal which motivated the team of what the can do. Kudos to all the players and the coaches.

    Good play by Ndombele , but GLC has the cutting edge we need to win games

    Ndombele was booked and could have got a second yellow
    Mourinho was right to pull him
