Heung-Min Son, Hugo Lloris bust-up labelled ‘beautiful’ by Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho labelled Spurs’ half-time bust-up during their win over Everton as “beautiful” after asking his players to be more critical of one another. A furious Hugo Lloris exchanged angry words with Heung-Min Son at half-time of the 1-0 home win, with the pair needing to be separated by Giovani Lo Celso as the captain continued to criticise his team-mate for failing to track an Everton run just before the interval. Mourinho shed some light on the reasoning behind the dispute after the game, and added his delight in the show of passion from his two players. “It’s beautiful,” he told Sky Sports. “It’s a consequence, probably, of our meetings. If you want to blame somebody for that, it’s me. I was critical of my boys because they are not in my opinion critical enough with themselves, I asked them to demand more from others, I asked them to put their colleagues under the pressure of the team spirit you have to give. “It was a situation where an amazing kid, who everybody loves, Sonny, the captain [Lloris] thought he had to do more for the team and give a different effort. “There were a couple of bad words, but I think it was something very important for the team to grow up, for that to happen you need to demand more of each other and be strong personalities. At half-time, I said when I saw the reaction I had no doubts they would stick together until the end.” In his post-match press conference, Mourinho said he has no interest in winning the “Fair Play Cup”, and the spat between Lloris and Son should have taken place in the dressing room rather than on the pitch, but that was where his disapproval ended. “A team of good boys, a team of nice boys, the only thing they can win at the end of the season is the Fair Play Cup. Something I have never won and have no interest in winning that,” he said. “You have to have certain characteristics. I don’t like a team without communication in a critical way. “What happened should not happen on the pitch, it should happen inside the dressing room, but I promise you my winning teams we had big fights, big fights in the team. “When I was arriving (in the dressing room) I saw the back of it, everything was over and they were hugging each other. In the last minute of the first half it ended with a Richarlison shot, Hugo thought that in that minute of the game attacking players should do a little bit more. “Hugo was arguing with Son and Son with him, I wanted to make sure the players understood I was happy with that. When I told them that I think they realised that nothing was wrong.” Speaking to Sky Sports, Lloris played down his half-time row with Son after the 1-0 win over Everton. The Spurs captain said: “It just belongs to the changing room. Outside you can say whatever you want. There is a lot of respect between all the players. What happened between me and Son is just something that is part of football sometimes, but there is no problem at all. “You can see at the end of the game we are more than happy to be part of the team and to have the three points. To concede a chance six seconds before half time because we don’t press properly. It annoyed me but it’s part of football, no problem, we move on.” Jamie Redknapp on Sky Sports Premier League… “For the Richarlison chance just before half-time, Son gives up on the ball. There’s a reaction, Lloris is proud, he doesn’t want to see anyone running at his back four. He shouts at Son, it’s probably the most exciting thing that’s happened in the half! “This might be a consequence of what happened in the Sheffield United game, when he did make a challenge. He runs up to him, he puts Lo Celso in the way almost. “I’ve seen it with Steve McManaman, Bruce Grobbelaar, and at least it shows they care. There wasn’t enough of that against Sheffield United, in the dressing room it’ll be sorted out quickly, they’ll shake hands, they’ll get on with it. You’ve got to have that sometimes. “It’s not the first time it’s happened in football and it won’t be the last. You want to see players showing a bit of passion, and if he’s not doing his job Son, he’s got to get back, and he didn’t! Sometimes you have to let people know. “That’s exactly what you want [as a manager]. You want your players to take responsibility rather than it always be the manager or the coaches. It’s put to bed now. They’ve got three points and Jose will be delighted with that.”

NRL: Round 8 team of the week

We pick our stand-out XIII from the players who starred over the weekend in Round 8 of the NRL… Gutherson was in superb form as the Eels blew away North Queensland Cowboys with a 42-4 win at Bankwest Stadium in Friday’s headline attraction. The 25-year-old set up three of Parramatta’s tries, broke the line twice, assisted three other line breaks, and carried for 234 metres – not to mention kicked seven goals as well. The Fijian star was at his unstoppable best with four tries which helped Parramatta to a convincing win over the Cowboys and kept them top of the NRL table. Sivo’s try-scoring haul came off the back of him carrying for 144 metres, plus 56 post-contact metres, and breaking the line four times. The centre grabbed a second-half try for the Raiders to help them on their way to a 22-16 victory over St George Illawarra Dragons on Friday. Croker carried for 117 metres and broke the line once as well, along with kicking three of four conversion attempts. Crichton led the way with two tries for the Panthers as they defeated Wests Tigers 19-12 at Bankwest Stadium on Saturday. The 19-year-old carried the ball for 86 metres and made one line-break as well. The 25-year-old led the way for the Warriors as they got back to winning ways with a 26-16 victory over Brisbane Broncos on Saturday. Along with crossing twice, Maumalo carried for 270 metres, along with 110 post-contact metres, and broke the line twice. Another star man for the Eels as they overwhelmed North Queensland, Brown was on hand to set up three of his side’s seven tries in the match. The 20-year-old New Zealander assisted a line break too and carried for 94 metres. His kicking helped keep the Cowboys at bay too, totalling 321 metres from his in-play kicks. The half-back was at the heart of the action for the Storm as they inflicted a 27-25 defeat on reigning champions Sydney Roosters in the opening match of the round. Hughes scored two tries for Melbourne, made 100 metres with the ball in hand and broke the line once. The Sharks made it three wins in a row as they overcame Gold Coast Titans 40-10 at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday, with Hamlin-Uele among their try-scorers. The New Zealand international made 162 metres, 64 post-contact metres and broke the line once as well. The hooker was instrumental in the Warriors’ victory over Brisbane, scoring one try and setting up another in the clash at Central Coast Stadium. Egan also broke the line once and set up another line-break, along with making 37 tackles to contribute in defence. The prop was a huge presence for the Knights again as they won a nail-biting and controversial contest with Manly Sea Eagles 14-12. Saifiti carried for 194 metres, including 64 post-contact metres, and contributed on the defensive side as well with 37 tackles. Su’a was among the try-scorers for the Rabbitohs as they overcame Canterbury Bulldogs 26-10 in Sunday’s showdown at Bankwest Stadium. That came on the back of him carrying for 140 metres, along with 61 post-contact metres, and making 27 tackles. Lawton was a surprise selection in the second row for the Warriors, but he proved effective there in the victory over the struggling Broncos. The 24-year-old carried for 87 metres, along with making a team joint-highest 44 tackles on the defensive side. Another star man in the Souths back row as they shook off the previous week’s defeat, Murray was on hand to set up one of his side’s tries against the Bulldogs. The loose forward also carried for 62 metres and was a big contributor in defence, making a team-highest 47 tackles in the match.
