Mourinho says Amazon could do ‘a full episode’ on Spurs’ defensive errors

Jose Mourinho says Amazon could create a full episode on Tottenham’s defensive errors after they conceded another two goals at Norwich on Saturday evening.

Spurs had the chance to return to the top four of the Premier League with a win at Carrow Road, but had to come from behind twice and only managed a draw against the division’s bottom team.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, a clearly frustrated Mourinho said his team’s defensive woes are costing them points. He said: “I think the same defensive mistakes that we made in the first half were made in the second half [too], this is becoming a little bit like our history”.

Since the Portuguese manager took over at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium following Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking, they have conceded 17 goals in nine games in all competitions.

Mourinho was able to crack a joke about the situation, though, saying streaming service Amazon could dedicate a full episode of the upcoming documentary-series, set to be released next year, to their frailties at the back.

“I think if Amazon wants to do an episode, they will have, for sure, one episode about our defensive mistakes and the goals that we concede.

“We conceded two very bad goals, the first and the one that was offside – two very bad goals.

“In the second half i think we were very, very good with the ball. We create, we dominate, we play but, again, the goal is a very bad one.

“To score two goals away from home, you have to win, you cannot concede as many goals as we do but our defensive mistakes are match after match”.
