Jose Mourinho Satirical FA Cup Ball: Too Light, Like a Beach Ball!

Tottenham's coach, Jose Mourinho, began to make frequent complaints lately. This time the target is the FA Cup ball that feels too light like a beach ball.

On Sunday (1/6/2020) yesterday, Tottenham played in the FA Cup third round match at Riverside Stadium. The club nicknamed the Lilywhites competed against Championship division representatives, Middlesbrough.

Jose Mourinho lowers his full squad except for Harry Kane who is injured. Unfortunately, with material on paper far superior, Tottenham were only able to achieve a 1-1 draw.

Even Tottenham had left earlier after the goal that was escorted by Paulo Gazzaniga uprooted Ashley Fletcher in the 50th minute. Tottenham's new goal was created 11 minutes later through the action of Lucas Moura.

FA Cup Ball Satire

Rather than highlighting the performance of his teammates, Mourinho prefers to criticize the ball used in the match. He felt the burden of the ball was too light that it could be likened to a beach ball.

"I think this ball is a beach ball. It's too light. I'm not sure this can help players," But that's not the reason, "he continued.

Not only that, Mourinho also regretted the absence of assistive referee technology known as VAR. As you know, the FA Cup does not use VAR in every third round match.

"Yes, because Middlesbrough's goal was offside. VAR will make that decision [offside]. Referees [today] are not ordinary people who are in office space within 200 miles," he continued.

Tottenham Had Trapped Problems

But Mourinho himself was aware that, at one moment of the match, his team was already trapped in trouble. Therefore he reacted by including two players, namely Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela.

"When we were 0-1 down without strikers or the energy to play inside their defensive lines who have a lot of good body and soul, at that time I felt 'we were in trouble',"

"But everything reacted. Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela really helped us. If a team has to win, it should be us because we have lots of opportunities," he concluded.
