Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho praised young defender Japhet Tanganga saying that the likes of Salah and Mane saw his quality when they faced him.

Tanganga made his Premier League debut for Tottenham during their 1-0 loss to Liverpool in game-week 22.

The English international impressed during the encounter which is why Jose Mourinho was infuriated when asked if he plans on signing new players in January.

“The last thing I want to do after this performance is to speak about [buying new] players,” said Mourinho.

“I think it is a way to show respect to these guys, not to speak about new players.

“Can we say Tanganga is a new player? He had never played a match for Tottenham in the Premier League. Today he played and today he proved that he can play for us.”

“It’s a pity that he’s not a striker! It’s a pity that he’s not a midfield player, but he is one more player that we have,” he added.

He then praised the 20-year-old saying that his performance caused wingers Salah and Mane to know what he’s capable of.

“I think Mane and Salah, they know who Tanganga is [now]. They didn’t know before the game,” he continued.

“I think when they saw the list [of players], they thought, ‘Oh, what position does this guy play?’

“I think now they know. The kid was really good. So instead of speaking about, crying about Harry Kane and Sissoko and Lloris and Ben Davies, let’s smile with Tanganga,” he concluded.

Tottenham are now eighth on the Premier League table and failed to win any of their last three games. Meanwhile, Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league and sit on top with 16 points clear from their closest rivals Manchester City.

The Reds’ next game will be against Manchester United next Sunday, January 19th.
