'Going from bad to worse' - Exclusive: Hutton reacts to crushing Tottenham update

Alan Hutton admits things are “going from bad to worse” for Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho after Steven Bergwijn’s injury blow.

The former Spurs and Scotland defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says the Portuguese boss needs to stop moaning and get on with things, despite how many players he has lost.

Spurs confirmed on Monday that the Dutch winger had suffered a serious ankle sprain, Mourinho admitting he expects to be without the January signing for the rest of the season.

Hutton says that while a crushing blow for the Lilywhites to swallow, they need to focus on delivering results rather than bemoaning their situation in public.

Hutton told Football Insider: “It’s just going from bad to worse with the strikers, they’re all getting injured at the moment.

“They’ve still got talented boys, I know it’s difficult – Kane, Son, Sissoko, Bergwijn – but they’re just going to have to get on with it.

“You see Mourinho out in the press, moaning about it, but other teams have had big injuries also and you don’t really hear too much about it.

“I understand his frustration, at this moment in time he’s not where he wanted to be at with the team but you can’t help injuries.”

Bergwijn made an immediate impact in north London, scoring two goals in seven appearances before being sidelined.

The Lilywhites’ injury problems mean that Dele Alli has been featuring as a makeshift centre-forward in recent games.
