Jose Mourinho confirms Spurs are in the market for a striker

Jose Mourinho confirms Spurs are in the market for a striker

Spurs icon Hazard who remains a loyal follower of his old club, commented on the signing of Fernandes and believes he will be a success under Mourinho at Tottenham - but is hopeful that he is not the only recruit Spurs land this month. "We have to go to people who have already had a career, who are at the end of their contracts". He suggested his managerial rival, with whom he clashed on numerous occasions when he was in charge at Manchester United and the Italian was at Chelsea, had broken a managerial code that relates to speaking publicly about a player from another club and he also suspects that Conte has briefed about Eriksen in private.

But Mourinho feels Conte has stepped out of line by discussing Eriksen, adding that the Inter boss should not speak about the Denmark worldwide until he becomes his player.

"I think Antonio, I think Antonio", he said. But I think we should always be closed, until something really happens. In the last match, I managed to give him 30 minutes rest.

"Even after the game against Middlesbrough I asked you if it was done or not done, you told me no, if it is not done then it is not done".

Mourinho said: "I put myself in the player's position and I think he needs January 31 to come and to be sure that he is going to stay until the end of the season or before January 31 to know that he is leaving. So when I see people speaking, especially people with responsibilities, I am a little bit surprised".

"We shouldn't speak about players from other clubs until they become our players".

"It was just a confirmation what Mr Levy told me before that". I have nothing to say.

"I've read reports and got good feelings for him, he's coming into a good squad of players, that in itself should be enough to motivate you and get better".

Eriksen has scored 69 goals in over 300 appearances for Mourinho's side since joining the club from Ajax in 2013.
