Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has defended his coaching methods and staff’s ability describing as second to nobody in the world.
Mourinho said after Spurs lost 2-1 at West Ham United, a result which continues their miserable run of form in the league.
Mourinho refused to concede defeat in their race for a top-four spot after the match, but he did admit “there are problems” at the club.
When asked whether he had ever doubted his coaching methods amid this poor run of form, Mourinho replied: “No, not at all. The results are the consequences of multi-situations in football. Mine and my coaching staff methods are second to nobody in the world.”
Mourinho also dismissed suggestions the team was in crisis but admitted there is “frustration and sadness” in the changing room, and said they are having a “bad run of results.”
“Of course our team has problems, and the problems they have a reflection on results and on points, but I also believe that a little bit of that light, a little bit of that luck that you also need in football to win matches, has to be back,” Mourinho added.
“And if that light comes back, is different. You hit the post and the ball goes inside or goes outside. The VAR decisions, many times, I am not speaking about today because today I didn’t watch, but many times are controversial or are decisions by one inch.
“You sometimes need also a little bit of luck to go in your favor. I believe that if this team wins a couple of matches in a row, that the situation can change, and that we can still fight for top four. Of course, if you say nine points now, it is difficult, is very possible.”
