Manchester United and England legend, Rio Ferdinand has accused Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho of ‘creating a rift’ within his own team after the Portuguese took another swipe at his Spurs squad following their 2-2 draw with Newcastle at the weekend.
Spurs were unable to beat Newcastle on Sunday, a result that would have seen them climb to fourth place after Chelsea were thrashed by West Brom earlier on Saturday.
After the game against Newcastle, reporters reminded the Portuguese gaffer that his teams are usually good at defending leads and he responded: “Same coach, different players.”
Ferdinand said that the former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United manager may have done more harm than good with his usual attacks on his players, adding that he ‘fears’ for him and Tottenham as a club.
“If I’m a player in that changing room, [Mourinho’s comment] is definitely casting doubt over me as an individual and us as a team,” Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel
“What that does to a changing room, man, it doesn’t galvanise them or bring them on side.
‘It creates a rift, especially when you’re not getting results. If you’re winning and top of the league, you can say and get away with these type of things, but not when you’re looking for confidence and searching for consistency.
‘He’s not bringing the players on side with those comments, man. That’s why I fear for Mourinho and his squad, because those comments don’t bring people alongside him.”
