José Mourinho has lodged an appeal with the Premier League to overturn the Man of the Match honour awarded to Son Heung-min on Sunday. Mourinho interrupted a TV interview with the four-goal hero to argue that the award should have gone to Harry Kane.
“Is wrong,” the Spurs boss told Soccer on Sunday. “As a club, we will fight to overturn Son’s award. And if the league insist that Son deserves it, we will take our case that he doesn’t to the European Court of Arbitration. I will not rest until the trophy is off Son’s mantlepiece and on my Harry’s.”
“Do I think Son is in cahoots with the Premier League?” said Mourinho. “No. Did I fine him two weeks wages anyway, for winning my Harry’s award? Yes. I take that money and I buy my Harry something nice with it. Maybe a motorbike, with HK10 registration.”
“Son is a nice man,” he added. “But when it comes to my Harry, back the fuck off.”
