Harry Winks was too honest – Tottenham boss

Jose Mourinho, head coach of Tottenham Hotspur, has joked that Harry Winks should have said that he wanted to score his impressive long-range effort in the Europa League against Ludogorets so it could win the FIFA Puskas Award and he was too honest.

Much to the surprise of all watching as he sent the ball rifling into the top corner to send Spurs a 3-0 lead on the night, Winks was around 50 yards from goal by the touchline.

But Winks came clean as soon as the game was over, reminding the BT Sport cameras that he was simply looking to locate Gareth Bale, rather than reveling in gratitude for an impressive shot.

“I’d love to sit here and say that I did [mean it], but I’ve got to be honest and say no. I saw Gaz run in. I’ll take it at the end of the day,” Winks explained.

However, his manager had other opinions and insisted he should have taken credit.

“Winks was honest and he said in an interview that he wanted to play a diagonal ball to Bale. If it was me, I would have said I did mean it and won the Puskas award,” Mourinho said afterward during his own post-match media briefing.
