Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has summarized the results of the match of the 26th round of the EPL with Burnley (4-0).
“We had to get three points for the sake of moving up in the table, for the smiles on the faces of the players. That is the most important thing. We needed a good win in the EPL,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“We started the game in a cool way and converted our first chance to score, and after the third one we were 2-0 up. As a result, we were 3-0 up at half-time. It is very important for a team which hasn’t been playing good lately, losing.”
“Usually, we start the game and concede after the first mistake. Today, it was different. Burnley battled to the end but I can’t remember any important saves from Lloris. We controlled the game from the start.”
“We need the points. We got them today without too many problems, we needed them.”
“I am very happy for Bale, happy for the team – it needs Gareth’s talent. I am happy for Bale because he is calm, partly ignoring what they write, say, show about him. I’m pleased because when he’s in good form, he’s capable of playing like he did today. He played very well and it was not only in goals, but also in the way he changed the tempo, broke into the penalty box. I am very satisfied.”
