Cassano: Tottenham manager Mourinho is no Cruyff

Former Italy star Antonio Cassano has slammed the tactics of Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho.

Cassano was unimpressed by Tottenham's defeat at Arsenal on Sunday.

He told Calciomercato: “No one can say that Mourinho's teams have played and play well.

"Yet Mourinho has won two Champions Leagues, a genius like Cruyff has only won one. But we can't compare Cruyff to Mourinho in the least.

“Mourinho's football will never go down in history, I speak personally by saying that he doesn't excite me.

"I saw Arsenal-Tottenham, Erik Lamela scored a sensational goal but Arsenal have less strong players than Tottenham.

"Tottenham have an impressive squad but have been defending the whole game except for the last 10 minutes. I can't think that a coach who has won so much can go on like this."
