#PLStories – Another bizzare incident at goalpost when #JoseMourinho finds out that goal posts are small #THFC

Jose Mourinho

Tottenham discovered the goalposts were too small ahead of their Europa League clash with KF Shkëndija, Jose Mourinho has revealed. Before the game, a strange situation occurred after Spurs’ goalkeepers discovered the goalposts were too small before the game. The UEFA delegate was forced to check and after confirming they were indeed the wrong size, new goalposts had to be fitted.

Jose Mourinho said “Before the game was a funny situation because my goalkeeper told me the goal was small. I went by myself and of course the goal was small. The goalkeepers, they spend hours and hours and hours in the goal so they know when the goal is not the right dimension. I am not a goalkeeper but I know football since I was a kid and I know when I stand there and I spread my arms and I know the distance so I felt immediately that something was going wrong. We got the UEFA delegate to confirm and yes it was 5cm smaller (too low), which of course we demanded for the goals to be replaced for goals of the right dimension.”

Spurs won the game 3-1 in Macedonia, passing through to the Europa League qualifying play-offs round thanks to goals from Erik Lamela, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.
