Marine boss Neil Young thanked Jose Mourinho for fielding a strong Tottenham line-up after their 5-0 FA Cup defeat.

Spurs featured the likes of Dele Alli, Gareth Bale and Moussa Sissoko for the win.

You said afterwards, "It was a tough afternoon, they brought a very strong side really, and we're grateful for that. They've shown us respect have Jose Mourinho, and their club, to bring all their stars here to play against us. I'm very proud of my team, we've come a long way. It was our eighth FA Cup tie but it was a tough afternoon.

"They had a lot of the ball as you'd expect - they are technically unbelievable. Their movement in midfield with Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko and Lucas Moura and for the first 20-25 minutes we were in the game, but once they scored they upped it a couple of gears and when you think you're getting a foothold they bring on Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilón but that's great credit to Jose Mourinho for bringing those players on.

"It would have been easy not to and save them but it has been a great season and we're very proud of what we've achieved."
