Wolverhampton Wanderers pulled off a stunning scalp on Sunday afternoon to bolster their chances of playing in Europe once again next season.
Nuno Santo’s side clinched all three points in a five-goal thriller against Tottenham Hotspur in north London to overtake them into sixth place.
Spurs twice held the lead in the first half before Raul Jimenez popped up with the winner in the 73rd minute with a coolly slotted finish.
Jose Mourinho’s post-match comments, as relayed by The Athletic’s Tim Spiers, has riled some members of the Wolf Pack on social media.
Mourinho says the result wasn't fair and Neves should have been booked in the first minute 👍

He’s a shocker and a bad loser Got away murder at Molineux 😡

Plenty slammed the Portuguese boss’ comments, claiming he was a “bad loser” who was “salty” while one supporter claimed he was “predictable”.
Mourinho was also labelled as “classless” as well as a “fraud.”
Some others wondered why he said such a thing considering his players got away with similar things to Ruben Neves – Serge Aurier and Ben Davies both committed three fouls, which was more than the Wolves midfielder per SofaScore.
And how many of his players got away with countless fouls on Adama. Swings and roundabouts Jose.

Ben Davies could easily have been booked twice.

They shouldn’t have had 11 players on the pitch at Molineux, including captain hamstring. Karma!

Did he mention his tactic of pulling Traores arm at every opportunity to deliberately try and dislocate it? Thought not!
— David Prokic (@DaveProkic) March 1, 2020
The previous head-to-head at Molineux earlier in the season was also referenced with one supporter brandishing it “karma.”
There was even an accusation that the Spurs players purposely tried to disclose Adama Traore’s shoulder.
And then some fans compared the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager to his fellow countryman Nuno Santo…
He just can’t handle being the second best Portuguese manager in the Premier.

Nunos the special 1

A further member of the Old Gold faithful said Mourinho was the “anti-Nuno” whilst another claimed the Wolves chief was indeed the ‘special one’.
