Mourinho bemoans Spurs’ lack of ambition


Jose Mourinho was not particularly impressed with Tottenham Hotspur’s lack of attacking intent after dropping more points from a winning position in a 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.

Spurs have now failed to win in four consecutive league games to heavily dent their hopes of a first league title in 60 years.

Mourinho’s men edge up to fifth, but remain six points adrift of leaders Liverpool.

Tottenham have dropped eight points by conceding equalisers in the final 10 minutes this season after also blowing leads against Newcastle, West Ham and Crystal Palace. They also conceded a 90th-minute goal to lose at Liverpool.

“We didn’t have that ambition, that desire to go for more,” said Mourinho.

“One point against Wolves normally wouldn’t be a bad result because they are a strong opponent, but scoring a goal in the first minute and having 89 minutes to score more goals, you feel frustrated.

“Defending deep, that’s not the intention. They know what I asked them at half-time, if they couldn’t do better it’s because they couldn’t do better.”
