Mourinho rejects comparisons between Tottenham and Real Madrid


Jose Mourinho Tottenham 2020-21

Jose Mourinho has baulked at comparisons between his current Tottenham team and the Real Madrid side he managed across the 2011-12 season.

The veteran manager seems to have found a similar spark at Spurs this season with the club's attackfiring freely early on.

Tottenham have scored the equal most goals (15) in the Premier League so far, while they've scored 19 timesacross their past four matches in all competitions.

Despite that strong start, Mourinho was quick squash comparisons to Real Madrid and stress overall team cohesion is more important at Spurs.

"No, in Real Madrid, I had amazing, amazing attacking players and we managed to build the team in a certain way," Mourinho said.

"I have to be honest and say we have lots of good attacking players here but we need to give stability to the team because the team needs stability in the back to feel solid, confident – to be able to have a go. So we need to find that balance.

"It is a team thing, it’s not just about individuals. We need to be able to play with all these attacking players and have the team with everybody ready to be organised defensively and not to give space to the opponent. And behind, we need to improve in some details – that’s obvious.

"You look to our squad and incredible quality and numbers and options from midfield to attack and we are trying to find solutions and we are trying to be organised.

"Thursday for example Ben Davies played, I think, for the first time as a centre-back in a back four because before it was in a back five."

While all eyes will be on Tottenham's attack when they face Burnley in the league on Monday, Mourinho's defence has been bolstered over the summer by the signings of Joe Rodon, Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon.

"Joe Rodon, we just love his potential, his mentality. He needs to work to get there. Matt Doherty has just arrived and he is also adapting," Mourinho said.
