I feel sorry for Mourinho - Rio Ferdinand

I feel sorry for Mourinho - Rio Ferdinand

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand says he feels sorry for Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho as his team keeps letting him down each week.

Yesterday's FA Cup game against Everton was a thrilling encounter as Tottenham crashed out after losing to Everton at extra-time. 4-4 was the scoreline after 90 minutes of action and Bernard's fine finish sends Everton to the next round as they won the game 5-4.

It was indeed not a good outing for Mourinho as individual errors from some of his players let him down during the game as their chances of a potential FA Cup trophy ends.

Speaking with BT Sport after the game, Rio Ferdinard pointed out how the Tottenham players have been letting Jose Mourinho down each week even after changing his style of play.

‘I have to say I actually feel sorry for him [Mourinho] in some ways,’ Ferdinand said.

‘Because in recent weeks he’s changed quite a few times in the way they’ve approached games. The West Brom game was a bit different when Harry Kane wasn’t playing, and now tonight was open and expansive.

‘But each and every one of those times recently they’ve been undone by individual moments, individual errors.

‘As a manager, you can prepare all you like all week for each game but these individual errors are killing him.

‘In that sense I feel sorry for him because sometimes it just derails his whole plan that he’s worked on all week.

‘I think it’s a quality thing [issue], yeah. I think there’s too many players consistently making mistakes and it’s leaving them open and they’re having to chase games some of the time.

‘Until they get that right and eradicate those types of mistakes they can never really consider themselves a team that’s going to challenge consistently because mistakes lead to goals, which then means you chase and leaves you open, it’s problems consistently.’
