Jose Mourinho looked extremely pleased in the post-match interview with BT Sport after making a winning start to his reign as Tottenham Hotspur manager.
The Portuguese manager said he was delighted with the team’s performance in the first hour of the game and claimed that the disappointing final thirty-minute display was down to player fatigue due the international break.
The 56-year-old also revealed that he told Dele Alli during training that he was too good to not be in the England squad and not to be considered among the best players in the world.
Watch Mourinho’s full interview below:
"I really enjoyed our first 60 minutes. The most important thing was to win." ✅
"I spent some time with Dele in training and we said the best Dele has to come back!"
