"We have to sort out our defence". Nonetheless, he stated he refused to wallow in pity and as a substitute began planning for Saturday's residence sport towards Burnley.

"We have to work on it, but it is hard, as we had a recovery day yesterday and we play tomorrow. So I think we have to look ahead to Bayern with all these things in mind".

"It's not the defence, it's the defensive process".

Although all the games have ended quite tight on the result, the improvement in the game is evident as well as the football played by Dele. "There are 11 players on the pitch".

New Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has also said that he is willing to give youngsters a chance in the first team with Troy Parrott and Ryan Sessegnon set to play in the Champions League against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

"I saw a sad dressing room, a sad bus and a sad plane", Mourinho said, quoted by the Daily Mail.

You can not be sad. You have to be more than that. "You have to be raging, angry, not sad", said the 56-year-old. Being sad is not going to resolve your problems. "But we have players with quality and a great dressing room".

"I don't want people to be sad after the game". Mourinho said that the defeat needs to be replaced with a win as matches can be replaced but people cannot.

"Sad is not the kind of reaction that I like, and these players need this kind of message". He also said that he wants his players to get the message that the word "defeat" does not exist in his dictionary, adding that being sad was not the option as they should be ready for the next match. "And that's not what I like after a defeat. Don't be sad. Let's go - next day, next match". A great opportunity for the development of these young players, the Walker-Peters, the Skipps, the Parrotts, the Sessegnons, all these young players that we have, it's a great opportunity for them. "I slept in here (the training ground), I stayed here, I didn't go home, so the next morning at eight o'clock I was here doing what?"

"We are going to finish second it doesn't matter the result but it will be very important for the players that are going to play and for me to get to know them better".
