However, with freezing temperatures in north London, Mourinho revealed that he told Winks to leave and warm up.
“I told him to go, I told all the players who left the field to leave because when it is cold I prefer them to go to the locker room and take a shower and be warm and safe” , Mourinho said.
“I told them to leave, some prefer to stay cold, they prefer to stay and participate in the game from the bench. Winks decided to go and I’m happy because I told him to do it. ”
