Jose Mourinho who is the manager of Premier League side Tottenham has been blasted by former Arsenal star Martin Keown for his comments against his players after Europa League defeat.

Tottenham surprisingly lost 1-0 against Royal Antwerp on Thursday night, October 29, as the Spurs stars failed to find the back of the net.

Lior Refaelov scored the only goal of the tie early in the first-half as Spurs were unable to get the equalizer which made Jose Mourinho angry.

Tottenham fielded a decent side which only got stronger at half-time when Jose Mourinho chucked Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son on in the encounter.

But the efforts by the former Manchester United boss did not help the situation as Spurs failed to even get any shot on target in the second half.

According to the report on UK Mirror, Jose Mourinho was so frustrated with the performance of his players and told them that they did not deserve to win the match.

But the manner in which Jose Mourinho treated his players after the game brought out the anger in former Arsenal star Martin Keown.

"Well I'm not going to follow him but it's like, is this how we're going to communicate?
"If you want to talk to me, talk to my face. What are you doing posting stuff?
"These are messages and I just think, keep it in house. It's a bit churlish, childish sometimes what you're hearing.
"Because players have to keep their mouth shut but he can say whatever he wants publicly. I'd rather keep it within the dressing room.''
