Prior to playing host to Boro, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho held his latest press conference on Monday.
During the presser, Mourinho was asked about Gedson Fernandes, and had this to say:
“I am waiting for news. News can come or not. I’m more worried about Middlesbrough than the market.
“Even if you get a player you cannot play him in a replay. So in this moment I’m not interested in Gedson or any kind of player.” As quoted by football.london.
