Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken a dig at Tottenham Hotspur fans.
Spurs fans sang, “You are not Special any more” after Mourinho’s side surprisingly lost 0-3 to Tottenham at Old Trafford last Monday. A chant meant to mock the under fire manager’s nickname, ‘The Special One’.
Commenting in a recent interview about the action of the Tottenham fans, Mourinho said, “Yeah but they didn’t have that song when we beat them at Wembley a couple of months ago [in FA Cup semi-final],” he said. “It was cup final they had a big dream to go, a title they had a big dream to win, because they don’t win many. In that night at Wembley the United fans were singing the special one and of course they [Spurs fans] were not singing that.”

Regarding Anthony Martial being in discussions regarding a new contract, Mourinho said, “With Martial you have to wait for that to be official because in this moment is not official.”
