Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says he slept at the club’s training ground to prepare for yesterday’s match against Burnley, which Spurs won 5-0.
The Portuguese stayed at Hotspur Way in Enfield after his side were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United on his return to his former club last Wednesday.
Mourinho felt that the dressing room was a “sad” place following the loss.
“After a defeat you cannot be sad. You have to be more than that. You have to be raging, angry, not sad,” he said.
Mourinho reportedly slept at the training ground during his negotiations with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
The defeat at Old Trafford was Tottenham’s first under Mourinho.
“I didn’t go home, so the next morning at eight o’clock I was here doing what? Burnley,” Mourinho said.
“Analysing Burnley, trying to organise the training session, trying to organise the meeting, choosing the clips to show them the most clear possible way Burnley works.
“That’s the way you have to do it in football. Don’t accept in a passive way.”
