Here is your Tottenham Hotspur morning digest on Tuesday, April 13
Have Spurs broken Son?
Son is known as one of the happiest people in football, his infectious smile and jocular nature attract others to him, but after the defeat against Manchester United, all of that seemed a long way away from the South Korean.
In an interview given to the club’s in-house media department, Son looked to be bordering on the edge of tears throughout the three-minute video. The interviewer commented that in the six years he had known Son he had never seen him in this state such was his emotion at the defeat and the manner in which it came about.
Our Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold has given his opinion on the matter among his talking points from the match and you can read every word Son had to say right here.
Roy Keane’s advice for Daniel Levy
The former Manchester United captain thinks that Daniel Levy should stick with Mourinho not just for the remainder of this season but for years to come.
Keane said: “But from a footballing point of view, I would of course stick with him because his CV warrants certainly another year or two at the club.
“I’d say that anyway about giving managers a chance because I’ve been a manager and sometimes it does take a bit longer, even for the great managers.”
The former Sunderland manager added on Mourinho: “He’s obviously frustrated. It’s been a difficult month for him, getting knocked out of Europe, a couple of points last week, it wasn’t that bad but you never thought they were going to win the game.
“There’s a softness in this team, if you just look at the points they’ve dropped. He’s clearly frustrated, you can tell that. He’s a bit paranoid now when he’s talking to the media because there’s a lot of spin put on it afterwards and it’s as if he’s criticising the players. So, I’d say he’s frustrated.”

Gareth Bale can solve Mourinho’s problem
Our Tottenham writer Rob Guest believes that Gareth Bale is the answer to Mourinho’s problems at Spurs but only if the Welshman is given more time to impact matches.
With seven league games and a Carabao Cup final left to play Bale could still be the difference between a poor season and a successful one for Spurs if he is allowed off the leash and used from the start of matches rather than as a last desperate attempt to claw their way back into a game.
Read more on how Bale can be the man to make the difference Tottenham so desperately need right now.
