Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he slept at the club’s training ground after the 2-1 defeat to Manchester United on Wednesday.

He said he was awake preparing for Saturday’s match against Burnley.

The Portuguese stayed at Hotspur Way in Enfield after his side were beaten 2-1 by United on his return to Old Trafford.

“After a defeat you cannot be sad. You have to be more than that. You have to be raging, angry, not sad,” he told pregame press conference on Friday.

The defeat at Old Trafford was Tottenham’s first under Mourinho.

Tottenham host 12th-placed Burnley at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend.

“I didn’t go home, so the next morning at eight o’clock I was here doing what? Burnley,” Mourinho added

“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.”

Tottenham are eighth in the Premier League with five wins, five losses and five draws this season.

“It’s obvious we have problems but we have players with quality, a great human dressing room.

“I like the guys very much but we need to change that feeling of feeling sorry about our mistakes and feeling sad with our bad results,” Mourinho added.
