Jose Mourinho has given his FA Cup press conference ahead of this weekend’s third round tie against eighth-tier side Marine.

The Tottenham boss revealed Gareth Bale could be in contention to play on Sunday after telling Mourinho “he would like to play” – the Welshman returned to training following a calf injury on Friday.

He went on to say Erik Lamela could also be in line for a return, but Giovani Lo Celso is still out. The pair were both recently criticised for ignoring coronavirus restrictions over Christmas.

Watch Mourinho’s press conference in full below.




  1. For Jose…

    “The great fallacy is that the game is first and last about winning. It is nothing of the kind. The game is about glory, it is about doing things in style and with a flourish, about going out and beating the other lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom.”
