Tottenham Hotspur slipped to a 3-2 defeat at home to Wolves. Spurs fans have heavily criticized Jose Mourinho after introducing Irish striker Troy Parrott late on.
The Spurs are too nice
Jose Mourinho felt that Tottenham is too pretty, because on Sunday they recorded the third defeat in a row, although, according to him, their appeal with the score 3-2 to the Wolves was “completely unfair.” Spurs followed Losses of Chelsea and RB Leipzig with another failure at home on Sunday, putting aside their hopes for securing a place in the Champions League. They twice led through Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier, but Matt Doherty, Diogo Jota, and Raul Jimenez all struck for the Wolves “who went above the” Spurs “in sixth place in the Premier League. In the second half, Spurs have not had time to shoot on goal, but Mourinho is not considered an accurate reflection of the outcome of the match.
The Wolves are powerful on the counterattacks
“I don’t think it was a fair result,” he told reporters. “Both teams sought to win with different styles. They are so powerful on the counterattack.” We tried different solutions. It worked in the sense that we scored two goals. I think this is unfair, and the result is entirely unfair. He added to reporters: “The players did not deserve defeat. We were punished by, I would say, mentality errors. We must be ruthless against teams such as the Wolves, which play fantastic counterattacks. The front three went well, and they did what they could. They completed the plan we worked on in the week.
The Spurs did not deserve to lose
“It was a great game. My team did not deserve to lose at all. It is difficult to find a reason to lose the game, except for a couple of individual mistakes.” At the beginning of the game, we were great, and the Wolves were really in trouble, I would say. “In the last period of the game, they know what we cannot do, and then they are just compact with everyone in the box, and this is the most challenging thing for us at the moment. “It’s sad, and I’m sad, obviously, but I’m sadder for the players.”
Jose, however, recognized the area where Tottenham could improve. “We are too good, too sweet. That may be the only difference between the teams.” On the contrary, Nuno Espirito Santo insisted that the victory did not take any additional meaning, because it happened against Mourinho, who coached him in Porto. According to him, beating Mourinho’s side was “nothing special,” although he declared his admiration for his former manager.
