Mourinho decline comments as three key players prepare to leave Tottenham in January

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho has refused to talk about the contract situation of Spurs three key players, Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen who are set to leave the club in the January transfer window.

DAILY POST had reported that Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen are among the four players set to leave Tottenham next year.

The trio’s current deal at Tottenham will expire at the end of the season but Mourinho has now confirmed that he’s speaking with both the club’s president, Daniel Levy and the players to resolve the differences.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Tottenham’s clash with Man United on Wednesday night, Mourinho said: “I’m not going to discuss these individual things. If I tell you that I didn’t speak with Mr [Daniel] Levy about Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen, I would be lying. So, yes I’m speaking to Mr Levy about it.

“At the same time, I also speak with the players, with all of them. We speak and try to understand every detail but it’s not something I’m going to discuss.

“The important thing, really, is [they are] great professionals, big relationship with Tottenham, amazing understanding of what the club is and what we need from them.

“So, all three ready to play, all three ready to forget the contractual situation.

“And that’s the most important thing now because we’re in three competitions. And these boys are great players and Tottenham people. I trust them.”
