Jose Mourinho reveals plan to turn Tottenham’s poor form around

Jose Mourinho has said he and his coaching staff are doing ‘everything we can’ in order to help Tottenham get their season back on track.

Spurs have lost five of their last six games in all competitions, and a dismal winter run has seen them slip out of the Premier League title race and all the way down the table to ninth place.

Many of Tottenham’s recent defeats have been exacerbated by individual defensive errors, and Mourinho was asked what he and his coaches are trying to do to put an end to this wretched run.

“Everything we can,” he said ahead of the first leg of Spurs’ Europa League round of 32 tie with Wolfsberger.

“Starting with players receiving their own [analysis to their] phones, iPads immediately. Analysis of all the situations so they can read, they can analyse by themselves.

“Then the individual meetings analysis every situation and trying to improve every situation. Then on the pitch like we did today, because we come from a little bit of a resting period, we managed to have today and yesterday two good training sessions.

“Yesterday they had a part of the global session, they had the individual work with Ledley [King] and the staff. and then today we had the collective session in relation to the game tomorrow. Work, that’s the only thing that we can do to try to improve.”

Mourinho added that he does not feel like he is under pressure heading into the game in spite of Spurs‘ form.

“In relation to the pressure of this game, I don’t feel any pressure,” he said. “I feel big responsibility, which is a completely different thing and is much better than pressure.

“I think this is about responsibility, ambition, and motivation, not about pressure. I spoke to the players today about that and we’ll speak again tonight in the meeting we have before dinner and it’s about responsibility, motivation and ambition.”
