Before the 2020/21 season, not too many people expect Tottenham to create special things. At this time, coach Jose Mourinho’s army is leading the Champions League.
In his illustrious military career, Mourinho achieved many success in the Champions League when he led Chelsea. However, he experienced a series of unforgettable days at Man United. So, when he returned as Tottenham manager, Mourinho was asked many questions.
Before Mourinho took office, Tottenham was in the bottom half of the rankings and experienced a series of five defeats. The sublimation cycle that coach Maurizio Pochettino officially closes.
After that, Mourinho helped Tottenham finish the 2019/20 season in sixth place. In the 2020/21 season, although Tottenham had to lose to Everton in the first round, they quickly got up and had 8 unbeaten matches.
However, significant changes come from those at Tottenham. The role of table hunting was transferred from Harry Kane to Son Heung-min. The Tottenham captain showed great tactical vision and good chemistry with his Korean teammates.
While Son Heung-min is close to the top of the list of top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin with 9 goals. Then Kane is the number one passer of the tournament with 9 assists. Mourinho’s changes have paid off.
Former Lyon midfielder also announced that he would not play for Tottenham if Mourinho was still in office. Conflict between the two climaxes.
After that, the Portuguese strategist created the conditions to play again and gave many compliments to the student. Then now, Ndomblele becomes an important player for Tottenham.
Compared to the opponent’s goal and ended with a shot, Tottenham only had 4, the worst group in the Premier League. Meanwhile, the numbers of Man City and Liverpool are 13 and 12, respectively.
When players get tired, it becomes more difficult to control the ball, maintain pressure for a long time. They also deal with the problem of precise handling in the decision-making stages.
