Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has aimed a dig at Manchester City over their attempts to sign Lionel Messi when the Argentine wanted out at Barcelona.

The Citizens and a few other clubs including Man United, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Paris Saint Germain all showed their interest in the 33-year-old. Though, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has decided to see out his contract at Camp Nou before considering a move away from the club. The Portuguese-born tactician insisted that the North London club could not have afforded the Barca captain due to their respect for the ‘Financial Fair Play’ rule. City recently escaped punishment from UEFA after being slapped with a two-season ban for breaching the FFP regulations.

Jose Mourinho exchange pleasantries with Pep Guardiola during one of their meetings – “In the case, it’s a disgraceful decision because if City are not guilty of it then you are not punished with £10m,” said the Portuguese. “If you’re not guilty you shouldn’t have a fine. If they are guilty the decision is also a disgrace and you should be banned from the competition.” The 57-year-old during a promotional video for Top Eleven said Tottenham would not be willing to break any rules to try and sign Messi onto their books.

Asked if he would like to sign the Barca superstar, the 57-year-old told JOE: “For my Top Eleven team? No, not for Tottenham. Just for Top Eleven.

      Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham United saw Jose Mourinho’s men surrender a 3-0 advantage to draw 3-3 in a thrilling Premier League clash played on Sunday, October 18.

Spurs came into the match in spectacular shape having stunned Man United 6-1 in their last EPL fixture played at Old Trafford. Panic as injury rules Liverpool star who helped them win Champions League and Premier League titles out for 8 months The tie saw Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane once again picked from where they left, with Kane finding the back of the net twice in the first half against their London rivals on Sunday. Heung-Min got his side off a flying start as he scored the opener inside the first minute of gameplay, latching on Kane’s brilliant pass to fire into the far corner. Kane doubled the advantage eight minutes later, with the Englishman once again combining with Heung-Min who turned provider this time.

The England international made it 3-0 in the 16th minute, with Sergio Reguilon and Hojberg all playing a part in the build-up. The second half of the match saw West Ham pull a dramatic comeback deep into the half, with the visitors scoring three with the help of an own goal to salvage a draw. Late Vestergaard strike shatters hearts of Chelsea fans as Blues draw at home to Southampton despite Timo Werner brace Fabian Balbuena was first to pull one back for David Moyes’ men in the 82nd minute, before Davinson Sanchez directed the ball into his own net. Substitute Manuel Lanzini went on to score at stoppage time with a fine finish to ensure both sides share the spoils.

The result saw the Lilywhites miss out on a glorious chance to move second on the Premier League charts from five matches and now sit sixth with nine points. Legit.ng earlier reported that Timo Werner has expressed displeasure towards Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against Southampton at Stamford Bridge. Two first-half goals from the 24-year-old and one from Kai Havertz would have helped the Blues claim maximum victory in the game.

However, those goals were not enough as Danny Ings, Che Adams and Jannik Vestergaard ensured the game ended in a stalemate.
