Carlos Vinicius finding adaptation to English football difficult claims Jose Mourinho

Speaking ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League clash against Manchester City, manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that new signing Carlos Vinicius is finding the transition to English football difficult. (h/t Football.london)

The 25-year-old Brazilian striker arrived at Tottenham on a season-long loan deal from Portuguese outfit SL Benfica. However, Mourinho has opted to use him sparingly since arriving, in spite of the striker impressing each time he has been on the pitch.

Indeed, Vinicius marked his debut for us in the Europa League with two assists, while he also made an impact on his Premier League debut against West Bromwich Albion prior to the international break.

However, Mourinho has now admitted that the 25-year-old is still finding it hard to adapt to the new environment, with the language barrier being a problem. (h/t Football.london)

“He can play, has quality. He needs to adapt and is still finding that adaptation difficult, starting with the language because he doesn’t speak any English. Even training sessions, different intensity, different culture in the league means he needs time to adapt, but he can play.”

Vinicius might yet still be adapting but the Brazilian has shown enough glimpses in his sporadic appearances that he can be counted upon.

And given the arduous season packed with a tight schedule, we will need the Brazilian centre-forward to step up and allow our main man Harry Kane a breather every now and then.
