On the sidelines of the Tottenham-Manchester City shock on Saturday night (2-0, 9th day of the Premier League) José Mourinho took the opportunity to chamber Cityzen Raheem Sterling.
He can’t help it. José Mourinho loves to attract the media to him and the reception of Manchester City, Saturday night as part of the Matchday 9 of the English Championship, was the opportunity for the Tottenham manager to target Raheem Sterling, the Cityzens striker.
“We are not as ready as Sterling is, given that he has been resting all week,” said the Portuguese as the broadcaster of the meeting asked him how his team had prepared after the break international.
“We are not as ready as Sterling as he was resting for a week…”

The “Special One” referred to a small controversy he had launched 48 hours earlier. Mourinho recalled that Sterling, hit in a calf, had been released earlier by the English selection (before their last game won against Iceland) so that his club could ensure the end of his recovery.
For him, it was a flower granted by Gareth Southgate, the coach of the men to the Three Lions, to Pep Guardiola, his counterpart from Manchester City. Raheem Sterling came in in the 72nd minute without being able to change the fate of the game.
