Let's go for an easy one - Jose Mourinho

Let's go for an easy one - Jose Mourinho

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has insisted he doesn't need to prove his worth and what he is capable of doing to anyone. He revealed this,  during the Pre-match interview of his side last game of the season.

The former Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester United manager believe he has done enough and that most of Tottenham's problem during the season was injuries to star players and that it really hurt them as they try to fight their way to the top 4.

However, the Portuguese his happy with his side last five games as they defeated Everton, Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Leicester City. They also drew against Bournemouth.

They run of games gave them 13 points and also moved them to 7th on the Premier League table.

'If you think I need to show [my worth], okay, i'm going to try,' Mourinho said

'If this is about individuals and an individual approach, let's go for an easy one.'

'I'm fourth in the league [since arriving]. I arrived 14th, eight points from Arsenal, 12 from a Champions League position. But if the league starts only for me, if you want to go in that direction, I'm fourth in the league.'

'If you think that's bad, that's your opinion. If you want to laugh with me, I'm the champion of the last five matches!

'I try to do my best all the time, I'm not worried about proving [anything]. My most important match is the next one, the most important season is the next one.'

'It's not what you think, anything that can come from outside, that can motivate me more or less. It's just my nature; I don't need that. I look forward to next season.'

Mourinho also spoke of the injuries that kept most of his players out and how things have been better since they have all been available.

'I think in this last period it was very clear that Tottenham with all the best players available can be a very good team,' he said.

'You look to the season: they lost [Hugo] Lloris for a long time, then Kane. Now with everybody together, you a see a difference in performances and results.'

'In case we have a similar situation, we are trying to protect the squad against unpredictable things. Let's try to have a better squad to be ready to face a dramatic situation.'

'I was telling Brendan [Rodgers, Leicester manager] to lose Ricardo [Pereira], [Caglar] Soyuncu, [Ben] Chilwell, [Christian] Fuchs... Can he do a miracle?

'It's very difficult. It's difficult for everybody. It was very difficult for Tottenham.'

'Do we think next season we are going to be less unlucky? Yes, we do think that. But at the same time, we have to protect ourselves and build a better squad, with more balance.'
