Jose Mourinho insists his methods the best despite Tottenham loss to West Ham

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho defiantly claimed that his methods are second to nobody even as his team slumped to a defeat against West Ham United.

Goals from Michail Antonio and Jesse Lingard on either side of half-time put West Ham in the driver’s seat at the London Stadium. And even though Tottenham pulled one back through Lucas Moura a little after the hour mark, the team could not complete a turnaround.

The defeat meant West Ham now moved to fourth while we remain in the ninth spot, nine points off of David Moyes’ men. Mourinho’s team selection and the way that the team played have been questioned during the recent slump.

The Portuguese, though, was defiant in his response when asked if he was questioning his methods.

“No, not at all. Not at all. Zero. Because sometimes the results are the consequence of multiple situations in football and mine and my coaching staff’s methods are second to nobody in the world.”

The former Real Madrid boss further insisted that there was still a chance for his team to pull together and finish fourth in the table while denying that the team was not in a crisis situation.

“I wouldn’t say crisis, I would say a bad, a really bad run of results. That is obvious. We’re losing too many matches. It is mathematically possible [to finish in the top four]. When is mathematically possible, it is realistic.”
