Spurs boss Mourinho admits he’s afraid of Aurier’s ‘sh*t’ defending

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has admitted in an Amazon Prime documentary that Serge Aurier’s defending scares him.

The Ivory Coast international has made a number of mistakes this season, , with the 27-year-old featuring in all but one of their Premier League matches last term.

A scene in ’s upcoming documentary All or Nothing – which airs next Monday – shows Mourinho tearing into Aurier in a pre-match team-talk ahead of their Champions League clash against Olympiacos last year.



“Serge, you are a marker. You speak good English?” Mourinho asked, to which Aurier nodded.

“I am afraid of you as a marker. Because you are capable of doing a sh*t penalty with VAR. So I am telling you already, I am afraid of you.”

The cameras were following the club for the entire season and were there to witness some dramatic moments.

Mourinho did not let them affect his management style though as he was happy to give candid team-talks, which made fascinating viewing.

In one of his early speeches to his team he accused them of being too nice.

“Maybe I am wrong, I feel that you are honestly a very nice group of guys,” he said. “But for 90 minutes you cannot be nice, for 90 minutes you have to be a bunch of c****, but intelligent c****, not stupid c****. B******* in the sense that you are there to win matches man.

“We have to win. I wouldn’t come here if you were not as good as you were. No chance.”

Lawyer: It’s ‘shocking’ that Maguire has not apologised

Lawyer: It’s ‘shocking’ that Maguire has not apologised

The lawyer who represented two police officers in the Harry Maguire assault case says it is “shocking” that there has been no apology from the Manchester United captain and his co-defendants.

Maguire, along with his brother Joe and their friend Christopher Sharman, were found guilty of assaulting a police officer, swearing, resisting arrest and attempted bribery at a court on the Greek island of Syros on Tuesday. He was handed a suspended 21-month prison sentence.

The 27-year-old England defender quickly indicated his intention to appeal, releasing a statement saying he and his family and friends were the victims in this case.



Dr Yoannis Paradissis says an apology would, in Greek law, make a big difference in any appeals process but insisted none had been offered.

“(The police officers) told me they are still waiting for an apology and they haven’t had any,” Paradissis told BBC Radio Four’s Today programme.

“This is what I find quite shocking and quite unsporting. Fair play means when I’ve done something wrong I apologise or at least I say I am sorry for what happened to the other person.”

Paradissis said an appeal would start the trial afresh but that in Greek law some of the accusations could be withdrawn if an apology was given and that “the outcome might be different”.

The impact of Maguire’s conviction is already being felt, with England manager Gareth Southgate withdrawing him from the squad for the Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark next month having initially selected him.

Asked about Maguire’s claim that he was the victim, Paradissis said: “We don’t have the same definition of what a victim is then, because how can you be a victim and the policemen have been assaulted, hit, that were just doing their jobs?

“They went home on the day with injuries. How can they not be a victim?”

The incident involving Maguire took place on Mykonos, part of the same Cyclades island group as Syros, in the early hours of last Friday.

Maguire signed a boot deal with Puma worth a reported £700,000 a year last year.

The sportswear manufacturer declined to comment on whether Maguire’s conviction would have any impact on the deal when contacted by the PA news agency on Wednesday morning.

Part of Maguire’s defence centred on the fact that his sister Daisy had been injected with an unknown substance prior to the incident.

Paradissis said this was “irrelevant” in respect of the assault on the officers and said it was “strange” that Maguire’s sister had not mentioned this when she was interviewed by police.

Asked whether Maguire and his co-defendants would have known the officers were police, Paradissis said: “Of course, because that’s the first thing they said. The police officers were there for other duties and they heard a brawl.

“So they heard some people fighting and went there to break up a fight. They said ‘We’re police, stop fighting’. They were not in uniform but they showed their professional IDs.”
