Wed 04 November 2020 | 14:35

Mourinho was asked about Kane being clever for winning penalties and he was not happy about it.

Harry Kane

was fouled, according to the referee of course, in the match against

Brighton

. He was fouled by

Lallana

and many believed that

Kane

just tried to be clever to win the penalty. Mourinho however defends his player and says that the English player is the last one to be judged.

He mentions the names of some rival teams and wants the media to focus on them instead of Harry Kane.

Mourinho

, speaking ahead of a Europa League trip to

Ludogorets

where he promised to go "full power", believed it was a genuine foul and defended his player.

"I think you are confused,"

Mourinho

fired back when asked about the decision.

"You could be speaking about some

Manchester United

players, some

Man City

players, some

Liverpool

players, some

Chelsea

players. You are speaking about Kane?

"He was in position to control the ball and Lallana came in a reckless action and committed the foul. It was a foul. What are the media speaking about? It's a foul.

"Direct free-kick or penalty, that's for the VAR to decide. It's inside [the box].

"It's not being clever. Harry Kane is there to score goals.

Lallana

was reckless, he made a mistake. What are you speaking about?

"You have to speak about something that happened that could have a direct impact on the result of the game, which was their goal.

"Speak about Liverpool, Man United, these penalties where you see the 'clever' guy on the floor. Don't speak about Harry Kane."
