Jose Mourinho Shares His Love For Animals In Bizarre Interview After North London Derby

Jose Mourinho Shares His Love For Animals In Bizarre Interview After North London Derby

Tottenham beat Arsenal 2-0 before Jose Mourinho unleashed his latest bizarre animal metaphor in the post-match interview.

The man who described Spurs as "not a horse, we're just a pony" when it comes to the title race now expanded his team to include all animals.

Responding to a question on Sky Sports which praised the world-class combination play of goalscorers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, Mourinho came in with addition: "And working like animals.

"With all the respect for animals. I love animals. Don't get me wrong," added Mourinho, his eyes widening as if he suddenly realised PETA might be watching and furiously misinterpreting his comments, which seems unlikely.

"But working amazingly hard when the team didn't have the ball," clarified the Spurs boss. Which is probably what we knew he meant all along.

Kane and Son combined for both of the Spurs goals to keep up the incredible record of these two beasts feeding each other.

They have now combined for 11 goals in the league this season - just two behind Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton's 1995/96 all-time Premier League record of 13 for Blackburn. And we are only 11 games into this season.

However Mourinho was keen to highlight their defensive diligence too, as Son pressed from the front on Sunday while Kane diligently headed clear several Arsenal crosses inside his own penalty area.

The 57-year-old just did it in the oddest way possible, by expressing his respect for all animals. Which suddenly has us imagining Jose as a zookeeper after he's retired, playing mind games with the warthogs and telling the elephants they need to track back, etc.

Until that shock career move comes, however, Mourinho is doing pretty well in his current role having briefly taken Tottenham to the top of the table post-match (albeit before Liverpool's late kick-off against Wolves still to come).

Mourinho is known for his unusual statements, from calling his then Chelsea side "a little horse that needs milk" to saying: "Young players are like melons. Only when you open and taste the melon are you 100% sure that the melon is good."

Add "all the respect for animals" to Mourinho's entry list, after his Tottenham side proved themselves cock of the walk in north London.
