(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR COACH, JOSE MOURINHO, SAYING: "So, this game (3-3 draw against West Ham United in the Premier League) was completely out of context. I believe that winning 3-0 in minute 80 we can play 50 more matches and it's not going to happen again. So, I don't want to be sticking on this and no stories about 'Spursy' or this kind of thing. We have just to defend better set-pieces because the team, even defensively the team is playing very well. We conceded one single goal from open play against Southampton. One. Apart from that, penalties lateral free-kicks, VAR goals and we are quite solid." LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (OCTOBER 21, 2020) (UEFA - NO RESALES, NO COMMERCIAL USE.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR COACH, JOSE MOURINHO, SAYING: "We are a team in evolution. I believe that nobody played better than us with the ball, which is a big evolution from last season. We are a very exciting team to watch I believe and that is very important and that's the DNA that we want to have. Is that enough to win football matches? No and you have the proof that we have only eight points when we played so amazing in every match apart from the Everton match but Southampton, Man United, Newcastle, West Ham, we played amazing football and this is very difficult to do and we are doing that. But of course, we need to play for a result and we have to learn how to do it." LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (OCTOBER 21, 2020) (UEFA - NO RESALES, NO COMMERCIAL USE.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR COACH, JOSE MOURINHO, SAYING: "We are going to try. It's the third time I've played the competition. The other two times, one in Porto, one with United we managed to win it. So, the record in the Europa League is great. Never knocked out. Of course, lost a few matches in the group phase and so but managed always to win it but it's difficult. We know that it's difficult. It is a very long competition. The group phase is tricky. Then you go into the knockouts, then you get teams coming from the Champions League, which in my opinion is very unfair because you've played Champions League. If you don't qualify, you go home. In the Europa League, we play the group phase, if a team finishes third, goes home - doesn't have another competition to play but it is what it is. So, it's a long competition and very, very difficult. In this moment let's focus on the points that we need, the 10, 11 points that you need to qualify through the group phase."

TRAINING SESSION IN PROGRESS STORY: Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho dismissed on Wednesday (October 21) suggestions that his side's late collapse against West Ham United at the weekend was another example of the club's so-called "Spursy" habit of capitulating when success is near. Spurs missed a chance to move up to third in the Premier League table on Sunday (October 18) when they threw away a 3-0 lead, with West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini's goal denying them victory with the last kick of the game. Speaking at a news conference ahead of Thursday's (October 22) Europa League clash against Austria's LASK Linz , Mourinho said Tottenham's implosion against West Ham was an anomaly in an otherwise impressive campaign. Spurs also let in a last-ditch equaliser against Newcastle last month, but that was due to a penalty for a harsh handball. Mourinho is aiming to win the Europa League for the third time with a third club having also claimed the title while in charge of Porto and Manchester United. (Production: Tim Hart)

Manchester United's revenue dropped by almost a fifth because the team did not play in the Champions League and because it was forced to close its stadium to fans during the coronavirus pandemic, the English club said Wednesday. The Premier League club, which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, generated 509 million pounds ($665 million) in the year to June 30 â€” a drop of 19%. While the team is back in the Champions League, there is no return of matchday revenue from supporters with games still being played in empty stadiums to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

MIDFIELDER, PAUL POGBA (NUMBER 6) TRAINING ALONGSIDE CAVANI AND FERNANDES (CLOSEST TO CAMERA) / TELLES RUNNING INTO POGBA BEFORE MIDFIELDER, NEMANJA MATIC (NUMBER 31) WALKS INTO SCREEN STORY: Manchester United slumped to a net loss of 23.2 million pounds ($30.3 million) in the last financial year as the coronavirus disrupted fixture schedules and forced soccer clubs to play matches behind closed doors. The fresh spike in COVID-19 cases across Europe is likely to further delay the return of supporters, hurting income from matchday ticket and catering sales, as well as museum tours for the bigger clubs. Premier League clubs last week rejected plans put forward by Liverpool and Manchester United for radical changes to the English game's structures and finances and said they would conduct their own review. United, who have made mixed start to the new English Premier League season on the pitch, said revenue in the year ended June 30 fell 19% to 509 million pounds, with some fixtures being delayed beyond that date. It gave no financial forecast for the current year. The club, controlled by the American Glazer family since a highly-leveraged takeover in 2005, said the net loss once the cost of debt financing was taken into account compares with profit of 18.9 million pounds a year earlier. Net debt rose rose 10% to 474.1 million pounds at the end of June compared with the end of March. The 20-times English champions said the impact of the coronavirus crisis on revenue has been partially offset by lower matchday costs and reduced travel due to the three-month suspension of soccer matches from March to June.

SHOWS: BARCELONA, SPAIN (OCTOBER 20, 2020) (BARCA TV HANDOUT - MUST NOT OBSCURE LOGO) 1. JOURNALIST ASKING BARCELONA COACH RONALD KOEMAN A QUESTION 2. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BARCELONA COACH, RONALD KOEMAN, SAYING: "We were a little bit too lazy in the start of the game, and they had one or two good chances. But after that we took the rhythm in the game, we played good football, we were scoring. But as I said before, maybe the best part of the game was after half time, 20-25 minutes on a high rhythm of our ball position scoring goals. The red card complained a little bit but we are used to play with one less." 3. JOURNALIST ASKING KOEMAN A QUESTION 4. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BARCELONA COACH, RONALD KOEMAN, SAYING: "We did defensively well and even we scored twice playing with ten men and that was really positive. Finally, a good result, a good start for the Champions League and we have time now to prepare the game for Saturday." 5. JOURNALIST ASKING KOEMAN A QUESTION 6. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BARCELONA COACH, RONALD KOEMAN, SAYING: "He (Leo Messi) is disciplined, he is working hard for his body and to be in a perfect condition to play. And then the quality of the player is amazing. You saw it tonight, he was scoring a penalty but the feel of the game, the assist for one or two goals, it was great and we are so happy to have him in Barcelona because he is showing every season that he is the best player in the world." 7. JOURNALIST ASKING KOEMAN A QUESTION 8. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH, RONALD KOEMAN, SAYING: "It's been a little difficult for us to get into the game with the pace of the ball we want to put in. I think that sometimes it is our problem, if we slow down, if we lower our pressure and aggressiveness, and let the opponents play too much, we have problems. If we are able to command the rhythm of the game, we are very good and we have seen those phases of the game." 9. JOURNALIST ASKING KOEMAN A QUESTION 10. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH, RONALD KOEMAN, SAYING: "We play differently, we have made changes in the team, in the squad. We opted for new people, for young people. So yes, you can't ask more of this team at the moment. I think we're doing well, there are enough reasons why we haven't won every game and it's about improving, working every day, but this team is going to have a great future." 11. JOURNALIST ASKING KOEMAN A QUESTION 12. KOEMAN LEAVING NEWS CONFERENCE STORY: Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman lamented a red card for Gerard Pique in their 5-1 Champions League victory over Ferencvaros on Tuesday (October 20) that will keep the experienced defender out of next week's trip to Juventus. Pique was sent off by Swiss referee Sandro Scharer with 20 minutes to go after a blatant pull-back in the box on the jersey of Ferencvaros striker Tokmac Nguen after he had been well beaten for pace. "The red card complained a little bit but we are use to play with one less." he said on a news conference after the match. Lionel Messi became the first player to score in 16 consecutive Champions League seasons, while Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho, 17-year-old Pedri and Ousmane Dembele were on target in what was, in the end, a commanding performance from the Catalan side. "We are so happy to have him in Barcelona because he is showing every season that he is the best player in the world", Koeman said, adding that he was pleased the goals had been shared around.
