Jose Mourinho’s reaction to FA CUP penalty shootout sums up Tottenham fans

Jose Mourinho summed up Tottenham fans as new footage emerged of his reaction to Norwich’s FA Cup penalty shootout win.

The Portuguese boss could not help his side avoid crashing out of the domestic tournament in the fifth round.

Jan Vertonghen gave them the lead after 13 minutes before Michel Vorm’s gaffe fed Jospi Drmic.

And Krul, whose heroics at the shootout got Holland to the 2014 World Cup semi-final, was on point against the north London side.

Footage has now emerged of Mourinho’s furious reaction to the result.

In the clip, the Spurs coaching staff are standing at the edge of the technical area as the penalties are taken.

The boss, though, cannot bear to watch and sits on his own.

He has one leg crossed above the other while the team watches the shootout intently.

But when Krul stops Gedson Fernandes’ effort, Mourinho is the fastest mover.

The Portuguese forward head straight down the tunnel, appearing to avoid an on-pitch handshake with Daniel Farke.

This footage was shared on Reddit on Thursday morning, where the Spurs faithful were left feeling their manager’s pain.

“His reaction was very similar to mine,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “That was exactly how I reacted.”

While a third was left feeling pessimistic.

“Not really the best thing for fans to see,” they said.

But other fans were left unhappy with the Portuguese boss’ apparent lack of support in crunch time.

“A leader should be on the sidelines,” a fourth fan said.

“Pathetic showing by Jose.”

With a fifth writing: “He should have been on his feet screaming.”

And another said: “Every action sends a different message.”

But Mourinho may have had one eye on his awful penalty shootout record.

The manager went on to slam his midfield as “completely dead” after their defeat to Norwich.
