José Mourinho assumed this Tuesday, in a press conference, that he will not be able to fight for the victory as he wanted against Chelsea. The Portuguese coach explained that Tottenham have a very important game on Thursday, which could be worth entering the Champions League, and that the club’s priority is in that game.
“The English Football Federation made that decision for me. I wanted to fight for the League Cup, but I can’t. The game next Thursday does not give us the same money as a group stage of the Champions League, but the group stage of the Europa League provides a very important amount for a club like ours », said Mourinho.
