Jose Mourinho isback where he goes from the dugout with Tottenham, and that he confessed on Saturday that hejust enjoys it.
The Tottenham of mourinho got off to a winning start, beating West Ham 3-2 on Saturday, their first away league win since January.
After a drop in form in recent months, Mourinho commended Dele Alli for his performance, and spoke of his pleasure at being back as No 1 he had been happy to hear music at the area, Following the match.
Mourinho seemed delighted to be back into the dugout, 11 months on from his sacking at Manchester United, and confessed he discovered his break strange sometimes, looking at what other teams and supervisors were doing during pre-season.
To admit to youpersonally, the toughest time for me in these 11 months has been the portion of the summer time where for the first time I did not possess a pre-season and I had been looking at other teams and other managers doing pre-seasons.
The thing which has been the most weird feeling was that I was going to soccer stadiums and occasionally I had been finding myself wondering just what I was doing here.
That was the bizarre feeling. I belong there [on the touchline]. That is where I belong. So now the impression is where I belong, that I was. Thats my natural habitat.
Can I extra emotional? No. Was I more nervous before the match? No. But I just love it. Particularly when things move in your leadership, of course, the very ideal thing in soccer is to win games.
But after securing their first away league win as January, Mourinho said that he was pleased as Spurs picked up three points in the Premier League for the first time in two months, to be around a happy dressing room.
It was really very, very important, he said. Eleven months without audio at the away dressing room. Without a smile, with no happiness, and they did this all. Im quite content with them, I am happy for them.
It had been very difficult for us to win but my perception is that we were nearer to 4-0 than West Ham were around 3-1 but that is the Premier League and their first aim changed things a little bit. I think a small bit was paid the cost for a week by my gamers.
This was a week in which they arrived back in their national groups, some of these from difficult games, some of them from traveling into a change of manager, along with a new man arrives. Thoughts that are new, new training sessions.
The emotional thing which surrounds that, I dont think is simple for a soccer player. They work with a coaching team and the next day other individuals are not there. It is hard to procedure
Alli played a part also, and over played his role in the London Stadium, making Heung-Min Sons opening goal with a assist while lying on the ground about the touchline.
It abandoned Mourinho, who also said he had talked to Alli personally to attempt and increase his assurance, waxing lyrical about the midfielder.
He explained:I think Dele was just like the group. Excellent for 60 to 65 minutes after which he paid the cost of the tiredness so he went a tiny bit down. But I believe he was the Dele Alli. The Dele Alli of a couple of years back that impressed not only England but the entire world.
He did exactly what I needed him to do. In two weeks of some actions work and data. I tried to make it clear for him exactly the spaces where we wanted him defensively , offensively and to play. Intelligent soccer player to comprehend what we wanted and really essential for the team. Quite happy with his performance
