Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has said to Football London that Hugo Lloris and Heung-Min Son quickly made up after their public dispute. 

Lloris was seen berating Son on the pitch at half-time, after the Spurs forward gave up on a misplaced pass from Lucas Moura.

Son looked dejected after the pass got away from him, and rather than track back, he just looked to the skies.

Richarlison ended up flashing a shot just wide, and Lloris was clearly unhappy with his Tottenham teammate.

The pair squared up to each other as they trudged off the pitch at half-time.

But Mourinho insists that things were quickly forgotten about in the dressing room, and that he liked seeing the Tottenham pair show some passion. 

“In this moment I’m the last one to arrive to the dressing room because I come from the other side, because you know that our dressing rooms are now on the other side to the bench,” Mourinho said. 

“So when I was arriving I just saw the back of it. I was not in there. When I arrived in dressing room everything was over and they were hugging each other.

“What happened was the last minute of the first half a Richardson shot was diagonal from right side, Hugo thought that in that minute of the game the attacking players should do a little bit more and he was arguing with Sonny and Sonny with him.

“When I arrived at half-time I just wanted the players to understand that I was very happy with that. Very happy with that. When I told them that I think they realised that nothing wrong and let’s move on.”

Tottenham actually went in at half-time 1-0 up, and they managed to hold on to the lead int he second-half. 

Spurs were not at their best, but looked defensively solid as they picked up an important three points.

Tottenham have now moved up to eighth place in the Premier League table.
