Jose Mourinho calls for common footing on Lo Celso tackle

Speaking after the loss against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has called for uniform playing ground regarding the tackle made by Giovani Lo Celso on Cesar Azpilicueta. (h/t Football.London)

The Argentine midfielder appeared to stand on Azpilicueta’s shin after a coming together in the 52nd minute. Following a lengthy review, VAR official David Coote decided against sending off the Spurs player.

Later in the match, officials confirmed that VAR had got it wrong and that the player should have been sent off. Thankfully for Mourinho, the player will receive no retrospective ban for the incident. The 23-year-old’s presence on the pitch made no difference as Tottenham slumped to a 2-1 loss.

Double standards?

Speaking about the incident, Mourinho hopes that the midfielders will elicit the same response as Andew Robertson’s tackle on Tanganga or Etienne Capoue’s tackle did.

“I hope noise is the same noise”

The Tottenham boss also questioned as to why the match officials did not clarify the error in those cases and felt the need to do so today.

When asked if the referee Micheal Oliver should have gone to the pitchside monitor instead, the Portuguese manager quipped that it was not his problem. Lo Celso would later go on to pick up a yellow card for his tackle on Mason Mount.
