Jose Mourinho will take charge of his first North London derby on Sunday, but while the excitement and excitement surrounding the fixture is exemplified, there is no denying that the situation surrounding his Tottenham team Could obviously be better.
Some lame displays since their return to the Premier League have cast a dark cloud over the club’s goals this season, and heading into their clash with Arsenal they sit a point and one place behind in ninth.

“So, so, so, so real, nobody’s worked for it. It’s just the way it is. Am I going to see it? No, no I’m not. It’s not something I want. , also because I know better than anyone what our day-to-day life is here, but I think it will be very, very interesting for people who love football and sports, I think it It would be really great for them.
“I don’t know what’s in there, I don’t care. Nothing is fake, everything is real. I think it must be great for them because they have a 24/7 football club and What a dressing room. They have everything.”
A teaser for the upcoming All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur was recently released by the streaming service, and needless to say, everyone is dying to watch.
Mourinho also spoke about Tottenham’s record signing, Tanguy Ndombele, who joined the club last summer with heaps of hope on his shoulders. However, his first campaign in English football has been anything but a smooth ride. There have been glimpses of his potential this season, but fitness issues and a lack of confidence from Mourinho have seen his involvement sporadic at best.

He was introduced as a half-time sub in the recent clash with Bournemouth, a tactic that prevented him from appreciating his impact by insisting he was no better than the rest of his squad.
He said that our attacking players are very good. “We can’t get better players than what we have. It’s one thing not to score goals and another is that the players are not good enough. They are good enough. I don’t want to replace my players.
“The feeling was that we would have the ball, the space to play, not the space to penetrate but the space to play, to keep the ball and with the midfield players I had on the bench: Skip, Gadson, the kid Harvey, Tanguy. I felt he had a knack for moving the ball.
“I think he was at the same level as the team, not better and not worse.”
