- Jose Mourinho led Tottenham to a 6-1 win over Manchester United
- The victory helped boost the morale of the 57-year-old manager after being branded a defensive manager
- Mourinho said Spurs could have scored more if they had an attacking boss in charge of the club
Jose Mourinho has blasted those who branded him a defensive manager after Tottenham Hotspur demolished Manchester 6-1 at Old Trafford.
The victory saw Harry Kane and Heung-min Son score brace while Serge Aurier and Tanguy Ndombele also scored a goal each in the meeting.
Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes' second-minute spot-kick ended up a mere consolation despite scoring first in the game.
Spurs headed into the fixture away from home on the back of their 7-2 victory over Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League.
The North Londoners also scored five goals against Southampton earlier in the season and the Portuguese born tactician stylishly claimed his side could have ended scoring ten or even more goals in those encounters if they had an attacking manager in charge.
After his side's impressive victory over United, Mourinho told beIN Sports:
"Imagine if they have an attacking coach. With a defensive coach, they scored five, seven, six. With an attacking coach they will score ten, eleven, twelve.
"The mentality is great. The players are playing very, very well. Everyone is giving everything. The squad is full of quality and talent."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team was reduced to 10 men after Anthony Martial was red-carded for a foul on Tottenham star.
Daily Mail reports that Mourinho felt that Tottenham was highly competitive before the Frenchman was handed a marching order by the centre referee, he said:
"We were more convinced about our power and our qualities. and our gameplan that about Man United's weaknesses, because I don't think they have many.
"We played very, very well. If people want to analyse just eleven against eleven then you can analyse and see how well we played and how much we dominated. We scored two goals, we were winning 2-1, but we could perfectly score more goals during that period.
"After that we played very, very well, we controlled the game much easier because one player less, but even with one player more you need to know how to play and the players were magnificent."
League activities will be on hold for national team duties this coming weekend after which Spurs return to action against high-flying West Ham United who also beat Leicester City 3-0 at the King Power Stadium.
