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.

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.

"It's fair to say that players with bad performances influence the team but also a team influence individual performances.

"It's not for me to individualise and bring some names to the table. You can do that yourself.

"You always tell me 'why is this player not playing, why is this player not playing' - maybe you don't ask me that for a few weeks as you have the answer."

Mourinho added: "You know what our best team is. I always like to think the players deserve an opportunity.

"We have a big squad with lots of good players. It's my responsibility to give them opportunities but it's also their opportunity to catch the chance with both hands and ask for more.

"Tonight shows my future choices are going to be very easy."
