Mourinho says #THFC do not need a new striker amid links to Danny Ings: “We are not a team that needs a third striker because our third striker is Sonny. We have the best, we are happy with Carlos. Ings I refuse to say any words about him because he is a Southampton player."— Jonathan Veal (@jonathandveal83) January 22, 2021
These are dark times for those that blindly peddle transfer tales – or is José Mourinho simply playing games, again? As per this recent piece on The Boy Hotspur, my own feeling is that Danny Ings is not the right man for Spurs.
From what the gaffer just said in in the pre-match presser, he was polite, but Ings to Spurs looks like a dubious thing. If Carlos is a player that genuinely makes Mourinho happy is another matter. One could take a view that Carlos Vinícius is here for the duration; so no professional coach would publicly call him out for being incapable of showing in training anything that might propel him into a Premier League starting XI.
I take a view that Spurs don’t need Carlos Vinícius, nor do they need Danny Ings.
