Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has admitted he is happy with the way the club dealt with the sale of Christian Eriksen.
The north London club sold the 27-year-old Danish international attacking midfielder to Inter during the recent January transfer window and the Portuguese manager is delighted as the funds raised through the sale, which are believed to be in the region of €20 million, were used to complete the signings of Steven Bergwijn and Giovanni Lo Celso.
“We lost Eriksen but, thanks to our president, we did it intelligently by selling him for an important sum that we were able to invest in young people like Bergwijn and Lo Celso,” the mastermind behind Inter’s historic treble winning season explained in an interview with British broadcaster Sky Sports.
Mourinho is widely regarded as one of the best managers this century having won trophies everywhere he has gone from league titles to cups to continental honours.
The 57-year-old took over the reigns at Spurs earlier on this season after they sacked Mauricio Pochettino and has got off to a decent start winning 10 of his first 19 games in charge.
