Jose Mourinho has insisted he along with his staff and players will do their all to improve over the summer break going into the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.
Speaking in the final home matchday programme of the season, Mourinho admitted it has been a difficult season for the club but he is encouraged by the results that next season will be better (Spurs official).
Mourinho was speaking ahead of the impressive 3-0 victory in the final home game of the season against Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City.
“There is no denying that we have faced some great challenges during what has been an unprecedented season for everyone,” he said.
“I am certainly looking forward to having some extended time to work with the players over the break as we aim to come back stronger next season.
“You can be assured we will do everything we can to improve on what we have learned this season as we aim to get this Club back to where it belongs in the Champions League and bring you all success and joy.”
