Tottenham Hotspurs coach Jose Mourinho has made comments concerning the size of the goalposts before Spurs’ Europa League victory against Europa against Shkendija in North Macedonia.
On the match, goals by Erik Lamela, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane earned Spurs a 3-1 victory, BBC reports.
Mourinho’s complain was successfully made to Uefa after keepers Joe Hart and Hugo Lloris pointed out the irregularity during the warm-up.
Speaking more about the situation, Mourinho said:
“Before the game was a funny situation because my goalkeepers told me that the goal was small,”
“I went by myself and of course the goal was small. The goalkeepers, they spend hours and hours and hours in the goal so they know when the goal is not the right dimension.
“I am not a goalkeeper but I know football since I was a kid and I know when I stand there and I spread my arms and I know the distance, so I felt immediately that something was going wrong.
“We got the Uefa delegate to confirm and yes it was 5cm smaller, which of course we demanded for the goals to be replaced for goals of the right dimension.”
