Mourinho Criticizes Referee’s Decision

LONDON: Jose Mourinho criticized referee Andre Marriner’s performance after Tottenham lost for the third time in a row, including at the hands of old club Chelsea earlier this morning.

Jorginho’s first-half penalty was enough for Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea victory, while Mourinho lost for the second time in a row at home during his tenure as manager.

Eric Dier triggered the penalty despite a slight touch on Timo Werner.

The Spurs manager slammed Marriner by saying: “I consider him one of the best referees in the English Premier League.

“I care and admire it. It puts me in the best position to tell you that I do not like his performance.

“The difficulty is in the penalty, and in the end the penalty determines the match.

“They scored a non-penalty goal that you say is a dangerous situation, one-on-one and goal-scoring.

“The penalty is hard to accept and losing in such a match is quite painful.”
