Jose Mourinho’s post Tottenham match press
Jose Mourinho addressed the press after a 6 – 1 victory over Manchester United. “Manchester United doesn’t lose many matches, to lose by six is of course not every day,” Spurs boss Jose Mourinho said after the match. “Historical victory but in the end three points and three very important points because we lost five points at home.
“We prepared ourselves very well tactically and also psychologically, the team was ready. So ready that a penalty in the first minute and going 1-0 down did not affect the team at all.
“Some people can say you play against 10 men for a long time which is true but for me it is also true that 11 v 11 we were playing extremely well, we were creating huge problems, we were winning 2-1 and they could not find solutions to control us.”
