Mourinho blames players for defeat

Tottenham Hotspur boss, Jose Mourinho, has accused his players of complacency following their 2-1 defeat to former club Manchester United in the Premier League this morning.

The 56-year-old Portuguese claims that he warned his players to not be fooled by Manchester United’s poor recent form as they tend to do better against bigger teams.

“I tried to fight exactly that state of mind. I tried to tell them exactly the way United approach these matches at home – against Liverpool, against Chelsea, always the strong start with people running, pressing, trying to lift the morale of the supporters.

“Normally they come from bad results against smaller teams so when they face the big teams people think it’s going to be more difficult for them. It’s not more difficult for them because the responsibilities change and they feel comfortable in this style of play.

“We have to blame ourselves. I think United must obviously be happy with the points, and overall they deserved it,” said Mourinho.

Tottenham are currently eighth in the league standings while Manchester United have climbed up to sixth.
