After their defeat against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United, Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur leaped to the second position in terms of teams losing most points from winning position. The North London-based outfit has already lost 18 points this season and are behind Brighton Hove and Albion who have lost 20 in the process. Tottenham Hotspur were leading the game at halftime against Red Devils but went to lose the game by 3-1. The manager was asked about the issue and here is how he responded to the question.
What did Jose Mourinho convey in the press conference?
Lillywhites sit six points behind the fourth-placed West Ham United and are out of the top-six in the ongoing season. They have a moderate to a tough run of fixtures as they are to play Leicester City, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final weeks of the season. Talking to the media, ahead of the crucial game against Everton, Jose Mourinho said:
That's what I'm not ready to discuss with you. I think it has to do with some of our qualities as a team, but I'm not ready to discuss with you
The former Manchester United also turned down to discuss the quality issue with the media. He also opened upon the upcoming week for Tottenham Hotspur. The club are still in the Champions League race whereas they are due to face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup finals on 17th April.
A big nine days, and they're going to end with a cup final, which for all of us is going to be an important moment. We are not depending on the Goodison result to go with the best feeling to the final, but the final is still a little bit far
A victory against Everton would boost their chances to finish in the top four whereas a victory over Pep Guardiola’s men would mean Spurs will feature atleast in Europe. It remains interesting to see how the Portuguese prepare his squad for the busy fixture.
