Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has rebuffed claims that his team is in a crisis after another loss at the hands of West Ham United.
It was Spurs fifth defeat in six matches but the Portugues was adamant in his post-match interview giving a strong defence of his management after the defeat.
“Sometimes the results are a consequence of multi-situations in football. And mine and my coaching staff’s methods are second to nobody in the world,” Mourinho said.
Asked if there were in a crisis, Mourinho continued: “I don’t know what you mean by crisis. If crisis is frustration and sadness in the dressing room, I would say so because nobody is happy.
“But when a team fights the way they did until the last second, it’s never a group crisis. Groups are in crisis when they are not together in the search of better results, so I wouldn’t say it’s a crisis. I would say we’re in a really bad run of results.”
According to Opta, Mourinho’s 81 points from his 50 league games at Tottenham is the lowest at this point of any of his managerial stints at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Chelsea for a second time, and Manchester United.
