Mourinho calls for Spurs to get equal amount of criticism as Man Utd after two consecutive defeats

Jose Mourinho has insisted that Tottenham should get the same treatment for back-to-back defeats that his team got from the media.

The Reds lost two consecutive Premier League games against Brighton and Spurs in August and were criticised by reporters throughout the country for their inept displays in both matches.

Mourinho even had to answer questions about his future at Old Trafford, despite the fact that the new Premier League season has only begun. There have been suggestions that United met with former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, in Los Angeles over the summer.

However, wins over Burnley and Watford either side of the international break have eased the pressure on Mourinho and his players for now, with a Champions League group stage opener against Swiss outfit Young Boys on Wednesday night next on the schedule.

Spurs also make their return to the European stage this week when they take on Inter Milan tomorrow night. They will travel to the San Siro off the back of two consecutive league defeats against Watford and Liverpool, yet Mauricio Pochettino is not being put under the same pressure.

According to The Express, Mourinho believes that the media should now be turning their attention to Spurs’ recent woes, given the fact that he and his team have had to endure the spotlight during their difficult spell.

Mourinho told reporters: “Tottenham have now lost two straight.

“If there is equality of treatment, if there is equality in the way of looking and reporting, they will leave us calm and will start bothering others.”
