• Mourinho saw sad dressing room after losing at Old Trafford
• ‘Being sad will not resolve your problems,’ Mourinho warns
José Mourinho wants to see his Tottenham players “raging” whenever they experience defeat, having been concerned their reaction at Manchester United was not intense enough.
The 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford on Wednesday was Spurs’ first under Mourinho, coming after three straight wins since his arrival. He detected sadness in the dressing room rather than anger and, as his team attempt to bounce back against Burnley on Saturday, has sent a clear message that their mentality needs to change.
