Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho responded with full force to critics of his “defensive” style after his team, Tottenham Hotspur 6-1 victory over Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday, saying that his team would have scored 10 goals against the opponent had his coach been more inclined to style. Offensive.
Mourinho was criticized last season after a number of defensive performances and disappointing results after he took over as coach of the London club, succeeding Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked last November.
But the team’s big victory, on Sunday, put the team among the best scorers in the Premier League after it raised its tally to 12 goals in four matches, tied with Everton and Leicester City.
“They assumed that they were under the leadership of a coach who would adopt an offensive style,” Mourinho said in televised statements.
“Under the leadership of a coach who adopts a defensive style, they scored six goals … With an offensive coach, they scored 10 goals,” he said.
Mourinho added, “We were more convinced of our strength, capabilities and game plan than we were convinced of United’s weaknesses because I do not think that the weaknesses are many.”
The victory also had a different meaning because it was achieved upon Mourinhos return to the club, which sacked him 22 months ago.
The veteran coach added, “The mood is great. The players are doing very well. Everyone is doing his best. The team is definitely full of distinguished elements and talents.”
United will return to the Premier League after the end of the international break and meet London guests, West Ham United, on October 18.
