J

ose Mourinho has suggested Tottenham are considering a social media boycott as a response to racist abuse of players online.

Last month, Former Arsenal and France forward Thierry Henry permanently deleted all his accounts in protest.

Asked about a potential boycott at Spurs, the manager said: “The club is thinking, analysing every detail and the club of course wants to make an impact and the decision that the club will make will be a decision that we will accept and support.

“It is an internal discussion about a sad situation.”

“In relation to Davinson, there is nothing more to add about the sadness of the situation but I would just say that he found a lot of love internally because he’s a lovely guy and everybody likes him and supported him and he’s fine.”

Mourinho has become a social media sensation himself this season with his usually light-hearted posts on Instagram.

Asked if he would considering coming off the platform, he said the responsibility lay not with individuals but with social media giants to act.

“I didn’t think about [a boycott myself],” Mourinho said.

“The ones that can make an impact on this and resolve the problem is the media giants – everything is in their hands to end this sad situation.
