Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has addressed the ‘problems’ but dropped subtle praise for ex-boss Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian lead Spurs to their first-ever Champions League final that year – but chairman Daniel Levy saw fit to replace the Argentine following a poor run of form.

Spurs secured a noteworthy 2-0 victory at home to Manchester City on Saturday evening, with goals from Heung-min Son and Giovani Lo Celso in either half.

“The 14th last season is a fake 14th. It’s a temporary 14th,” explained Mourinho. “It happens in a crazy season where they had so many problems. Everything was going wrong.

“The situation was not good but come on, the work they did before here, the club, Mauricio [Pochettino], the players, the 14th was just a temporary situation.”
