While trying to reflect on the club’s poor run of form, which has seen them lose five of their last six in the league, Tottenham’s Boss Jose Mourinho says he is far calmer and less emotional than in previous jobs, referencing one of his two dramatic departures from Chelsea.

Sunday’s defeat at West Ham means Jose Mourinho has managed to secure just 81 points from 50 league games in charge of Tottenham, his lowest total at this stage of any of his managerial stints.

Asked if he was better equipped now to cope with such a setback, Mourinho said: “Thank god I’m not the manager I was. Probably, I wouldn’t be as calm, confident and in control of my emotions.

“Sometimes during my career I had problems not in relation to results. As you know, I didn’t have many bad runs.

“Day-by-day problems happened many times and I reacted previously in a much more emotional way. “As an example, I left Chelsea as a champion.

“Maybe age and experience makes you realize that we are better equipped to cope with negative moments. “I am calm, I am in control of my emotions. My nature doesn’t change. If I lose a game, of course I am not happy, but maturity helps.

Meanwhile, after last weekend’s defeat to West Ham, Mourinho delivered a bullish defense of his coaching methods, describing them as “second to nobody in the world.”
