"Tottenham Hotspur Are A Bunch Of Perennial Losers"
Simon Jordan has claimed that Jose Mourinho was just being factual about Tottenham Hotspur's issues and called the players 'perennial losers' who haven't won anything.
On Sunday, Tottenham lost the chance to close the gap on fourth place West Ham United, as they chase the final Champions League spot for next season.
Mourinho's side drew 2-2 with relegation threatened Newcastle United, after Joe Willock scored a dramatic late equaliser for the hosts.
Following the match, the manager was asked why his team were unable to keep a lead, considering it's what Jose used to be famous for, with the former Chelsea boss saying, "Same coach, different players."
That answer was seen as a dig towards the players but, speaking on talkSPORT, Simon Jordan reckoned that Mourinho was just stating a fact and wasn't in fact saying anything negative about the players.
Whilst the manager might not have been calling out his players, Jordan certainly was, calling the Spurs' player 'losers' and having a go at them for their recent performance in the Europa League against Dinamo Zagreb.

Whilst Jordan might have a point about the fact that Spurs' players haven't won anything at the club before Mourinho arrived, claiming that the 'Special One' was simply making two factual statements that had no subtext seems a little naive at best.
When the 58-year-old arrived in north London, following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino, he clearly didn't have an issue with the players at his disposal. "I don't want to make big changes. I want to respect the base and the base is the work they did for five and a half years," the manager said at his first press conference.
"It's not the work they did for two days. The work we did for two days [before his first game] we hope that is a plus. We hope that is an update. Not a change. The base is what they did before. This is not about me.
"This is not about me coming here and saying everything was wrong with Mauricio, not at all. Not at all. I just come to try to understand why in the last year the results in the Premier League were not good and to try to understand how I can help them to reach again a good level because, as I was saying, the players are very good and I am not here to make dramatic changes."
The former Manchester United boss, who won the League Cup and Carabao Cup whilst at Old Trafford, proving Jordan's point, only has one chance to win silverware this season, with Spurs set to face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
Mourinho may have some patching up to do with the dressing room as reports have claimed that some players are unhappy with his criticism.
As well as the 'different players' jibe, comments about Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier's absences on Sunday annoyed the players involved.
