The Tottenham manager attended a pre-match press conference where his side face Wolfsberger AC in the Europa League. José Mourinho is not surprised by the decline in form of some of his players, including Heung-Min Son, who is suffering physically. “First of all, he’s not a center forward. He scores as much as a center forward, but he’s a winger. This further highlights his remarkable stats in terms of goals scored.

The intensity, the change of pace, the hard effort, the sprints … It’s amazing what “Sonny” and the others are doing. So it’s no surprise to me that he’s showing a bit of a blow lately. “
