Jose Mourinho not keen on making defensive additions in January transfer window
Jose Mourinho’s time at Tottenham started off well with three wins on the spin. However, the new boss was brought down to earth after a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.
Spurs weren’t at their best at Old Trafford, but we did see a great goal from Dele Alli. The problem for the team since Mourinho’s arrival has been the poor defending.
We have conceded two goals in every game under the Portuguese, and Mourinho was asked about the defence during the press conference ahead of the Burnley game.
The boss was asked if the defence could be fixed or improved with signings in January, but Mourinho wasn’t sure that new players would fix things (h/t Football.london):
“It’s not the defence. It’s the defensive process which is a different thing. When we speak about defence we speak about keepers, centre-backs, the mistakes you make at the back.”
The manager added that he didn’t pinpoint individuals and claimed fixing the defence is a process:
“I don’t look at individuals but the defensive process, and that belongs to 11 players on the pitch. It is in our organisation that we have to resolve our problems, not about one players, or signings. It’s a process.”
Tottenham need to get back to winning ways
Spurs had closed the gap to fourth-placed Chelsea after winning two games in the league, however, we sit nine points behind the Blues now.
We have to finish in the top four and play in the Champions League next season. Mourinho can improve the side in January, and it will be interesting to see what moves he can make.
