Jose Mourinho To Hand Troy Parrott Dream Champions League Debut Next Week

Tottenham Hotspur head coach José Mourinho has called for an immediate response from his side after their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in midweek.

"I think after a defeat you can't be sad".

"The only thing that comes to my mind is the goal where I had the honour to be seated next to Sir Bobby Robson, it was Compostela-Barcelona, 1996, and Ronaldo Nazario got the ball behind the midfield line and scored a very similar goal to Son. I think that's him that has to tell you". "Don't be sad. Let's go - next day, next match".

Ahead of Saturday's clash with Burnley, the 23-year-old had scored four goals and has made one assist in his last four games in all competitions to hit the ground running under Mourinho. His replacement Christian Eriksen helped turn a 2-0 deficit into a 4-2 victory, but he has not started a match since.

"But I was still focused for the finish, I wanted to finish with this action".

"Keep moving and going and learn from the mistake. The most hard thing is the talent, the other things I am here to help them".

They will take on Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night before a trip to Wolves next Sunday.

USA restarts Afghanistan peace talks with Taliban in Qatar
The Afghan Taliban spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid tweeted that the peace talks will continue for a second day, tomorrow (Sunday). After three months of halt, the talks between Washington and Taliban in Qatar resumed on Saturday, a source told AFP.


It will be an opportunity for Mourinho to have a look at some of the players on the fringes of his squad with Spurs already through to the last 16 and unable to finish higher than second.

Mourinho has confirmed that Parrott will be part of a line-up that will also include Kyle Walker-Peters, Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon.

"Not meaningless for me or Tottenham", said Mourinho of Wednesday's match in Bavaria.

Mourinho said that he wants his players to understand and know that he does not like people who are sad in case they taste defeat at the hands of their rivals.

"It's a great opportunity for young people". We will try to go with a team that gives us some guarantees to try to fight for a result that we don't need but we want.

"I'm going to play some of the players that have not played for me yet".
