Jose Mourinho happy with Spurs development: ‘We are one step ahead’

Jose Mourinho is happy with the development of Tottenham Hotspur this season. The Portuguese manager had a rough start to his Spurs career as he replaced Mauricio Pochettino at the club. Tottenham have moved up into sixth place after they beat Leicester City 3-0 in Sunday. Mourinho told reporters he was happy with the team’s development.

“The team is being a team. Even against Sheffield United we were a team, a bad team, but we were a team,” he said at his post-match news conference. I think the team is understanding better the principles of playing and what we want to do. I think it’s a good step.”

“As I said, to come mid-season is always a complicated situation that I couldn’t imagine was so complicated after so many injuries. But it’s a situation that helps you to organise the next season. I think there are some important steps that we have done already and next pre-season when we start we are one step ahead.”
