Tottenhan football club manager, Jose Mourinho has reacted to his winning the English Premier League coach of the month for November.
He won the award following a superb outing as his team claimed three wins and a draw on the domestic scene, including three clean sheets, to ensure they entered December leading the way at the top of the table.
He however aired his opinion on the award, as he said;
“It says ‘Manager of the Month’ but for me it’s ‘Team of the Month’ or ‘Staff of the Month’ because this is about the players and about all these guys that are here with me, the coaches, my assistants, the sports science guys, others who are not here, the analysts and lots of people that work on the staff. Thank you for this, but it’s not ‘Manager of the Month’, it’s ‘Staff of the Month’, it’s ‘Team of the Month’.”
Asked for his personal highlight during November, Jose added:
“I would say that it is every point that we got in the Premier League because every point is really, really expensive. I know that we had in November two of those considered big matches of the traditional top five or six like Manchester City and Chelsea, of course, good results against them but in the Premier League nowadays I say that every point is so expensive.”
This is the first time a Tottenham coach will win the award since Mauricio Pochettino won it in April 2017.
