Jose Mourinho slams Tottenham defenders for making same 'mistakes match after match'

Jose Mourinho has accused his Tottenham defenders of making mistakes 'match after match' since he took over from Mauricio Pochettino.

This comes after Spurs were held to a 2-2 draw at Norwich City with Mourinho’s side coming from behind twice in the game.

Mourinho was furious with his backline after the game as they have now conceded 17 goals in ten matches under him, The Sun (UK) reports.

He said: “I think the same defensive mistakes we made in the first half, we made in the second half. This is being a bit of our history.

“We started very, very well and had three or four big chances at the beginning of the first half and conceded two very bad goals.

"Our defensive mistakes are match after match. I have lots of work to do but it has been difficult because I always say you have to try and hide your fragilities.”
