José Mourinho accuses FA of double standards over Dele Alli ban

  • Mourinho says others behaved worse during pandemic
  • ‘It’s for everybody or it’s for nobody and it’s quite unfair’

José Mourinho has accused the football authorities of double standards over the decision to ban Dele Alli for an ill-judged social media post about coronavirus but ignore much worse behaviour from others in the game during the pandemic.

Alli will miss Tottenham’s opening fixture of the Premier League restart at home to Manchester United on Friday night after a Football Association disciplinary hearing found him guilty of an “aggravated breach” of one of its rules that includes reference to race, colour or ethnicity.

Sandro: 'It was a privilege to play for Spurs. Leaving is my biggest regret'

The Brazilian spent lockdown riding horses, playing guitar and reminiscing about his ‘sensational’ teammates

By Joshua Law for Yellow & Green Football

After 10 years in Europe that took in seven clubs, a lot of ups and more than his fair share of downs, Sandro is back in Brazil. Still only 31, he has fuel left to burn. The coronavirus crisis has given him time to mull over his time on the other side of the Atlantic, bask in what was and ruminate on what might have been. Having spent lockdown at his parents’ farm – where he was busy looking after his young children, riding his horse and strumming his guitar – he is in a reflective mood.

Now back at his home in Goiânia, where he plays for Série A club Goiás, he describes Tottenham and English football in glowing terms, calling the club “sensational” and the Premier League “the best in the world”. He laughs as he recalls the good times under Harry Redknapp and André Villas-Boas. Yet there is discernible melancholy in his voice as he discusses the injuries – psychological blows as much as physical ones, he says – and the move to QPR, which he calls the “biggest regret” of his career.

Grealish to Ndombele: six Premier League players with a point to prove

Guardian - tir, 16/06/2020 - 15:00

After a three-month hiatus, some players are in desperate need of a successful end to the season

Even before a lockdown during which he received a stern talking to from Arsenal for standing too close to his valet and then appearing to inhale nitrous oxide from a balloon, this has been a challenging campaign for Lacazette. After entering it as Arsenal’s player of the season, an early ankle injury stripped his confidence bare. His struggles in front of goal led to a nine-game drought until February, made worse by the fact that his presence shifted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the flank. This seems like an important opportunity for him to return with a clean slate and provide Mikel Arteta with some enthusiasm for his future at the club. Otherwise there will be many questions.

Premier League restart preview No 17: Tottenham

The situation was bleak before the break but Harry Kane’s return should give the side hope in a chase for a top-four finish

What was the situation like when the league was suspended on 13 March? Bleak, with José Mourinho the first to say so. The manager had major injury concerns, with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn each a long-term casualty. The squad looked tired and unbalanced, with Mourinho repeatedly bemoaning the fact that without Kane – who ruptured a hamstring tendon on 1 January – he had no senior No 9. The manager made no secret of his frustration at the failure to sign a new striker in the mid-season window. Unlike his predecessor, Mauricio Pochettino, he does not consider Son to be able to play at centre-forward. The team had rather ridden their luck at times – in the home wins over Manchester City and Southampton for instance, the latter in an FA Cup replay. After that game Mourinho said: “It’s very difficult to progress the way we want. Basically, it’s game to game, building a team with what we have.” Then the luck ran out. Spurs hit the shutdown on a sequence of six games without a win, a period when they were eliminated from the FA Cup and Champions League, and slipped to eighth in the Premier League.

What about now? All change. From pessimism to optimism. The fitness situation has improved radically with the aforementioned quartet all ready to play, although there are now doubts over Giovani Lo Celso. Son even found the time to fit in his mandatory four-week basic soldiers’ training course in South Korea. Mourinho has had bonus weeks to work with his squad, making it like the pre-season he never had although, plainly, the Covid-19 protocols have meant that things have been different.
