Tottenham boss Mourinho: Vinicius has only one problem here...

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is happy with the commitment shown by Carlos Vinicius.

The striker is on-loan Spurs this season from Benfica.

Mourinho said, "Coming to England was not easy for Carlos Vinícius, but he has adapted well and is giving us everything we want.

"Portugal is the perfect comfort zone for South American players to adapt to European football."

He added: "There is only one problem, which is called Harry Kane.

"To be in the same team as a striker in this category you need to be special, to stay motivated whether you are a starter or five minutes. You know you're not going to play much in the Premier League, because we have Harry Kane, but we're happy."
