Jose Mourinho reveals that Spurs have problems he cannot solve as a coach

Tottenham Hotspur fell to yet another defeat in the Premier League this weekend as they lost 2-1 away to London rivals, West Ham United.

The Hammers took the lead early on in the game after a mix-up at the back for Tottenham, with Antonio smashing home a rebound to make it 1-0.

Spurs struggled to create chances or get a real foothold in the match across the first 45, triggering two half-time changes from Jose Mourinho. Gareth Bale and Matt Doherty replaced Erik Lamela and Japhet Tanganga at the break.

However, Tottenham proceeded to go 2-0 down from a Lingard finish before they finally woke up and started to look dominant in the tie, with West Ham sitting back.

Unfortunately, despite a second-half Lucas Moura header from a Bale corner, Spurs wasted chances to level the game and walked away empty-handed.

After the game, Mourinho claimed that there was nothing he could do as a coach to fix some of the issues that Tottenham have, perhaps hinting at individual errors.

He said (Emma Sanders): “I feel that we are not in the position in relation to our potential – even if I think for a long, long time that we have problems in the team that I cannot resolve by myself as a coach.

“Our potential is higher than where we are so there is frustration.”

On whether he is questioning his own methods, he added (Football London): “No, not at all. Not at all. Zero. Because sometimes the results are the consequence of multiple situations in football and mine and my coaching staff’s methods are second to nobody in the world.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Perhaps if this perfect coach, whose methods are so brilliant, was to stop selecting error prone, division one standard players like Dier, Doherty, Sanchez, Winks, Sissoko, especially in defence where we are shambolic, we might perform better? Even our better players are looking poor these days. But not his fault of course. Or at Chelsea or Man U.

  2. Doherty Davies Dier Sanchez Lloris winks Sissoko all of these players should be replaced as soon as possible Alderweireld is past his best to be honest Mourinho’s tactics are Jurassic every team knows how to play them now what chance do we have in the final with Man city we’ll probably capitulate in the first 5 minutesget rid now and back to playing attacking football

  3. Spurs will never be any good until Levy goes, and Mourinho. Spurs need a manager who does the hiring and firing and not the chairman who may be a good business man but has proved he can’t pick a good manager (except Poch) or buy in players who are premiership standard.

  4. True you can’t solve the problems you little sh+t. You are creating those problems. What you are doing to our team…Dele in particular – is worth the sack. How on earth did Levy take you off the unwanted/unemployed list, pay you a top salary and top get out clause?
    I so enjoyed you make a mess of it at the poofs and manure. I believe you did a deal with fungus to screw us, like he did at scouse with two-bob Brenden Todgers and Woy.
