Latest Spurs news: Dani Ceballos scores a stunner as Spain U21 lose to Italy U21

Dani Ceballos scored an incredible goal for the Spain U21 team as they faced Italy in the U-21 Euros.

The Real Madrid star has been linked with a move to Tottenham, according to AS (h/t Sun), after he struggled for regular game time under Zinedine Zidane.

The report claims that West Ham are also interested in the 22-year-old, but Champions League football for Spurs makes them the favourites to land Ceballos.

The midfielder curled in a great strike in the ninth minute of the game, but that was not enough for Spain to beat Italy.

A brace from Federico Chiesa was followed by a late penalty by Lorenzo Pellegrini. Tottenham had another target starting in this game as Nicolo Zaniolo (h/t Metro) of Roma played as the right-winger against the Spaniards.

Fans impressed by Ceballos’ strike

Although the Real Madrid star was not on the winning side, it still was a great finish to give the Spaniards the lead.

Tottenham need to sign some players after a couple of barren transfer windows, and it will be interesting to see if Ceballos is a part of the new faces.

Some Spurs fans were pleased with the goal scored by the 22-year-old, and here are some of their reactions from Twitter.

Jose Mourinho rejected £12m from Real Madrid by becoming Tottenham manager

Jose Mourinho was a wanted man despite being sacked by Manchester United last season.

The Portuguese took over at Tottenham after Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking but he rejected some big offers to become our new manager.

The Sun reports that Real Madrid were willing to offer him £12m to wait and see as to when Zinedine Zidane would leave.

Zidane hasn’t seen Real do well despite taking over in the summer, however, Mourinho had decided to make Tottenham his next club (h/t Sun).

Mega offers for Mourinho

Mourinho is a winner and is one of the best managers for short-term success. He has always won something at a club and had some big offers on the table too.

Borussia Dortmund, Lyon and AC Milan were all keen on the former Inter Milan manager (h/t Sun).

There was interest from China too, with Guangzhou Evergrande offering him £40m after tax to take over.

Daniel Levy has pulled off a coup by landing Mourinho, and we have picked up positive results after his arrival.

We have won all our games under the new manager but our leaky defence is a concern.

Even in our last game, we were cruising at 3-0 but Bournemouth scored a pair to make things difficult for us.

Hopefully, we can continue our charge to the top and finish in the top four. Tottenham are six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

“He is not ready to play” – Mourinho confirms Tottenham’s summer signing isn’t ready for this position

Jose Mourinho says Ryan Sessegnon isn’t ready for left-back role

New Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that Ryan Sessegnon isn’t ready to play as the left-back.

The Englishman spent a lot of time in that position while at Fulham. Sessegnon joined Spurs in the summer but hasn’t played too many games for us.

He only has two appearances to his name this season and both have been off the bench. Sessegnon hasn’t even played a game under Mourinho, and the manager was speaking about the 19-year-old recently.

The manager was asked if Sessegnon is more of an attacker than a defender and went on to say (h/t Metro):

“In this moment, yes.

“I think Ryan is absolutely fantastic, I have known him since a kid in Fulham. When he comes to the first team in the Premier League it is different to the Championship.”

The former Manchester United and Chelsea manager claimed that Sessegnon could play as “a winger on the left” or on the right.

The manager then compared Ryan to one of the best Premier League left-backs ever, Ashley Cole:

“But Ryan has lots of similarities with Ashley, and he can learn how to defend. In the future I think he can be [a left-back] but in this moment he is not ready to play as a left-back.”

Tottenham’s next test

Mourinho has won both games in charge and it will be interesting to see how we do at the weekend.

Spurs face Bournemouth and the aim is to close the gap on the top four.

We lie nine points behind Chelsea before this weekend’s clashes. A good run should help trim that lead down and hopefully, we can finish in the top four this season.

Tottenham ace who starred in win over West Ham to miss Olympiakos clash

Ben Davies ruled out of Olympiakos clash while two stars return to training

Ben Davies did a decent job in the win over West Ham United but will not play in midweek.

The 26-year-old helped Tottenham beat West Ham in Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge, however, an ankle injury has ruled him out (h/t Tottenham Twitter).

The Welshman replaced Danny Rose in the starting XI and Mourinho might have to bring the Englishman back.

Spurs confirmed Davies missing the game, but there was some good news for the team too.

Jan Vertonghen and Tanguy Ndombele are back in training, and it will be interesting to see if they are selected for the clash.

Possible changes from Mou?

Ndombele started this season in impressive fashion but has missed a few games with injuries.

Vertonghen is a free agent in the summer and hasn’t been at his best for us. Mourinho started Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld in the heart of the defence.

Eric Dier also started in the win over the Hammers, and we need to get the three points against the Greek side.

Mourinho might mix things around given that we play Bournemouth at the weekend. Our game after that sees us travel to Old Trafford, and the boss will want to show what his new team can do.

The win at the London Stadium was the perfect start under Mou and we have to build on that in the coming months.

Jan Vertonghen and Tanguy Ndombele to be assessed before West Ham clash

Jose Mourinho could be without two big players for his first game as Tottenham manager.

The Portuguese replaced Mauricio Pochettino and his first clash is a trip to the London Stadium.

West Ham host us on Saturday and Tottenham confirmed that Erik Lamela and Michel Vorm are out of the clash.

Hugo Lloris won’t be back until 2020 as he recovers from his dislocated elbow. However, Vorm picked up a calf strain in training on Monday while Lamela has a hamstring problem.

The report adds that Jan Vertonghen also has a hamstring issue while summer signing Tanguy Ndombele is dealing with a groin problem.

The pair will be assessed before the game, and it will be interesting to see if they can play on Saturday.

Ndombele has been one of the bright spots this season after joining from Lyon. The Frenchman scored on his Premier League debut and is a great presence in the midfield.

Vertonghen hasn’t been all that great this season but Mourinho could use the Belgian’s experience.

Mourinho has a tough job on his hands

The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager has done some great things during his career.

However, the Spurs job could be his toughest given the situation we are in. Tottenham sit 11 points off the top four but Mourinho has time on his hands to turn things around.

Facing West Ham is far from an easy game, especially with just two days under the new manager.

The Hammers are also struggling and have picked up just one point from their last five Premier League games.
