Tottenham’s players gave Jose Mourinho a good feeling with their second-half success on Sunday, but he acknowledged that his team seemed “sad”.
Jose Mourinho said that his Tottenham squad showed “sadness” in their 1-0 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.
Tottenham managed a single attempt, a Mourinho team had one shot or less in the opening 45 minutes of a Premier League match on the 11th occasion, and the former manager of Chelsea and Manchester United welcomed his squad with a lack of intensity.
“I agree with that,” Sky Sports told Mourinho. We didn’t get off to a good start and the team was a bit sad, and my impression was that the team was a bit sad.
“The team was suffering to know a goal early brought even more sadness and loss of self-esteem. The second half was different. The chances they had were the chances of a team trying anything.
I saw people try very hard, I saw some people with exhaustion, but I tried hard. Of course, the loss is always a bad feeling, but for my boys, I leave with a positive feeling, which is a good thing for me.”
