The results of the Europa League 1/16 match against Wolfsberg were summed up by Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho (4-1).
“We had to play ambitiously, and it turned out to be that way. The scoreline should have been more than 3-0 after the first half,” Mourinho told the BBC.
“We made a mistake in the second half and Wolfsberger had a chance. The game against Everton was similar to this (4-5). If you control the game and make a mistake suddenly, it allows the opponents to save, the game can change. In this episode, we got through it. But we might as well have made it 2-3.
We controlled the game confidently, creating many chances. I think the last goal almost sealed the fate of the encounter. A very good result is 4-1 away.
That wasn’t a fantastic win, I don’t think, just good and enjoyable. The flight back home won’t be the same as in the event of a defeat. The same goes for the training session tomorrow.
We managed to give a rest to some players. Sonny played only 45 minutes.”
