That’s what we think.“One of the things I said to the players was that I saw a sad dressing room, a sad place – and that’s not what I like after a defeat.“After a defeat you cannot be sad. You have to be more than that. You have to be raging, angry, not sad.“Being sad will not resolve your problems. You need that mentality.“It’s obvious we have problems, that’s no doubt. We have players with quality, a great human dressing room.“But we have to change the feeling of feeling sorry for mistakes and sadness for bad results. We need to be more than that.”Spurs have conceded two in each of their first four games under the Portuguese, who agreed: “You are right. We are conceding too much, some cheap goals and have to try to stop it.“The best way to do that is to work and we didn’t have time to work on the training pitch this week.“But we have to sort out the defence without losing what we have in attack.“We’ve conceded two in each game but scored in all of them and could’ve scored even more than we did.”One of the stand-outs for Mourinho so far has been Dele Alli, who has scored four goals in the last three matches.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big onemost read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’NICE RONCristiano Ronaldo goes on family bike ride with partner Georgina Rodriguez & kidsThe Spurs boss added: “It’s more about him than me.“There was the natural frustration of a fantastic player who knows he was under-performing.
