Jose Mourinho has opened up on the problems which he encountered at Tottenham Hotspur after taking up the job last November.

The Portuguese took over from Mauricio Pochettino following a poor start to last season and admitted that it can be difficult to replace a manager mid-season but also believes it can bring some benefits in order to review things for the next campaign.

Rather than try to change things overnight, Mourinho instead claims he has made a diagnosis of what he felt needed to be changed.

The Spurs head coach claimed that the results were the main issue, particularly the club’s record away from home together with the amount of goals which were conceded.

Mourinho also highlighted the club’s injury issues which saw a number of key players spend time on the sidelines including Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies.

Spurs begin their Premier League campaign this afternoon with the visit of Everton.
