Ian Wright believes that Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has exposed massive problems at the club, as per his comments on the Kelly and Wrighty Show, which was broadcast on Optus Sport.
Lloris spoke candidly after Tottenham’s exit from the Europa League last week.
The French goalkeeper accused his Spurs teammates of lacking togetherness, and suggested that things weren’t right behind the scenes.
And Wright thinks that those comments should be of great concern for Tottenham supporters.
“When that [Lloris’ interview] is coming out, there’s problems. There’s massive problems there,” he said.
“You look at the way they play, you look at the way the Tottenham players are, they’re not happy with the way that they’ve played.
“Even when they were top, and people said ‘yeah they’re top but you’d take it’, Tottenham fans wouldn’t take it.
“Tottenham fans wanted to really push the momentum and that’s what they should have done. They had the capabilities to really push forward and let people see they’re serious about what they’re doing.
“But it’s like that second season at Chelsea, when they really blasted the league, and then in the latter stages they just stopped.
“You think why does he go so negative? Tottenham have the capability to really cause teams problems but the manager is not going to let them off that leash.”
Tottenham supporters’ frustrations at Mourinho has really risen in recent times, after a North London derby defeat and their embarrassing Europa League exit.
However, the Portuguese boss may have bought himself some time by winning in Spurs’ last game.
Tottenham went to Villa and won 2-0, to ensure that there was a more positive mood around the club, before the international break.
Tottenham now return to action in two weekends’ time, when they take on relegation threatened Newcastle United.
