Mourinho: He Will Leave
Posted: 15 November 2020
Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that one his players will leave the club in the January Transfer Window after failing to hold down a starting berth at the club.
Gedson Fernandez, the young playmaker who joined Spurs on an 18-month loan deal with an option to buy in January 2019, has struggled to make any impact for Tottenham, with Mourinho saying;
“For me it is never a problem, but a solution. Having him in the squad, even if he is not called up and not playing, is an extremely comfortable situation.
“I will never be the one to push him or say that I don’t want him here. But I understand the situation of the kid and Benfica.
“If the club wants to end the relationship here, we will be here to collaborate, because we want the good of the player. Benfica has the power to decide and will be accepted by us.” He concluded.
The 21-year-old is likely to return to his native Portugal or be loaned out to another club in the top division of the English Premier League when the window reopens in two months’ time.
