Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho has come out to say that better days are ahead for Gedson Fernandes.
He recently revealed that even if the player’s Spurs career is cut short in January, it will not be the end of the world.
According to him, Benfica would be within their rights to end his stay, but he can only hope Fernandes will enjoy successful career with or without Tottenham.
He added that he has been very impressed with his attitude of the Portuguese footballer, and he wishes him the very best.
His words, “The situation is sad because he was out of the Europa League list,”
“By being out of that list it immediately [removed] a chance of nine matches that we already played in the Europa League.
“[They were matches] where we had five substitutions where we rotated the players a lot and we can bring to the bench 12 players.
“To be out of these nine matches I believe that breaks confidence levels and even dynamics and routines and was very bad for him.
“These six months [have] become really, really bad for us and for him.
“On top of it he’s a kid, it’s incredible what I’m going to say, but since he arrived he didn’t miss one single minute of one training session.
“So even in low levels of happiness and motivation he is managing to be a very good professional.
“Hopefully better days will come for him and they will come for sure, with us or without us, but better days will come for sure.”
