Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho insists he doesn’t need to speak to Jan Vertonghen.
The boss substituted Vertonghen in the dramatic FA Cup win over Southampton, with the score 1-1.
Vertonghen, who is out of contract in the summer had the look of a Mourinho.
Mourinho’s side went on to win 3-2 and following the game, he said: “No injury, it was my decision. It’s normal that he’s sad. No player likes to come out.
“I decided to sacrifice Jan, so sad yes and with a reason to be sad, but happy now because he won.
“I don’t need to speak to him because he’s an intelligent guy. He’s very professional and it’s obvious that I did it not to punish because he was playing exactly the same as the others.”
