Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho has hailed his players for their resilience in their 3-1 win over Stoke City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final.

Spurs approached the fixture with the hope of getting a win following their disappointing result against Liverpool and Leicester City in the Premier League.

They, however, did themselves lots of good by recording a perfect win to secure their place in the last four of the EFL Cup.

Mourinho said after the game, as cited in Dailymail:

“In the first half we made it in a very positive way. I don't remember them having a single shot, not even a corner, because we were so dominant but we were not intense enough to score one more and kill the game.
“In the second half we came with that intention and were in a great situation to start a counter-attack but we transformed that with a counter-attack against us and a possible 2-0 became 1-1.
“Then the game was open. Of course we didn't want to go to penalties, and probably they wanted to, so we had to react, and I believe the boys reacted in the best way.”

Mourinho’s side will now face Brentford in the semis as the Portuguese tactician looks on course to guiding Spurs to a trophy.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Jose Mourinho might be planning another huge surprise for Tottenham Hotspur next summer.

According to reports in Spain, Mourinho is reportedly plotting to bring Luka Modric back to the club after about eight years with Los Blancos.

The Croatian joined the Spanish League defending champions in 2012 in a deal around £30 million - winning four Champions Leagues, two La Ligas and three Club World Cups since then.
