Jose Mourinho says he would rather give money to charity than the FA as he refused to comment on a controversial ending to his side's 1-1 draw with Newcastle in the Premier League this afternoon.
Despite leading for much of the encounter through Lucas Moura's first-half opener, Spurs were denied all three points after VAR drama in added time.
Newcastle were awarded a spot-kick in the 93rd-minute after referee Peter Bankes consulted a pitchside monitor and penalised Eric Dier for a handball in the area.
The penalty was subsequently converted by Callum Wilson to give Newcastle an unlikely point after the home side dominated much the encounter.

"We had that situation where we lost two points, but I'm not going to comment on it," Mourinho told Sky Sports in his post-match interview.
"I react during the game but the game is over. I don't want to speak about it, if I want to give some money away, I'll give it to charities, I don't want to give to the FA, so I don't want to comment."
After an opening day loss to Everton, Spurs bounced back in fine style with a 5-2 over Southampton, and many aspects of today's performance pleased Mourinho. He believed Newcastle were 'very happy' to be only 1-0 down at half-time.
"It's not for me to judge their performance, they did their job the best they could," he said of their opponents.
"I think at half-time [Steve] Bruce was super happy with the result one-nil, he is a very intelligent guy, a very experienced guy, a good friend, he knows football up and down and he knew at half-time it could be three or four-nil and he was very happy at half-time and they got their point."
The draw leaves both sides with identical records after the opening three matches with a draw, win, and loss.
