Jose Mourinho blames Inter Milan over the transfer move of Christian Eriksen
The Danish star was not in the Spurs team that was forced to 1-1 draw by Southampton
Mourinho hinted that the north Londoners will sign Lo Celso on a permanent deal this month
Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has launched an attack on Italian League giants Inter Milan over their move for want-away star Christian Eriksen.
The Danish midfielder has been linked with a number of top European clubs including Manchester United.
But Inter appear to be leading the chase to land the influential midfielder with less than six months to the expiration of his contract.
Eriksen was not in the matchday squad for Spurs in their 1-1 draw against Southampton in their FA Cup fourth-round match at St. Mary’s Stadium earlier today.
As a goal each from Heung-min Son and Sofiane Boufal saw the game ended in a stalemate – with a replay scheduled for early next month.
Meanwhile, the Portuguese manager has now taken a swipe at his former employers, saying their timing for the deal was wrong.
“Tottenham is the last one to blame for this situation,” Mourinho said after the match.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager who hinted that Spurs will make Giovani lo Celso’s loan move from Real Betis permanent this month added: “I just want to say that this situation shouldn’t happen on 25 January.
