Former Arsenal Defender Explains Where Mourinho is Going Wrong at Spurs

Posted by

The former Arsenal and England defender Martin Keown spoke to talkSPORT and felt that the ex-Real Madrid coach needs to be more mindful when speaking of his players in public.

“The negativity of what Mourinho said afterwards impacts the players that played last night,” the former Arsenal defender said.

“If I’m a player like Ben Davies, and Sergio Reguilon is being talked about as ‘a player we miss’, how does Davies feel about that? Why can’t Davies do what Reguilon does?

“He probably feels he’s protecting his players, but no, he’s actually wiping them of any confidence they might have had.”

Keown also explained that the Portuguese couldn’t hope to win trophies with the club if his side lacked self-esteem.

“He’s talking about how you win trophies and your self-esteem goes through the roof,” the former Everton man added.

“But you don’t win trophies without good self-esteem, so you have to work on that first. That’s a lesson he needs to learn.”

Does the former Gunners have a point?
