Mourinho confirms Tottenham thought Shkendija goals were '5cm too small'

Jose Mourinho has revealed Tottenham asked for Shkendija's goals to be replaced because they were "5cm too small".

Spurs ended up winning 3-1 in the Europa League knockout tie in North Macedonia.

Mourinho told a post-match press conference: "Before the game was a funny situation because my goalkeeper told me the goal was small.

"I went to see and it was small. The goalkeepers spend all their time in them so we know.

"I felt immediately something was wrong and we got the UEFA delegate to come in and it was 5cm too small. We asked for goals of the right dimensions."
