Head coach “Tottenham” Jose Mourinho believes that his team deserves a place in the Champions League:
“The minimum that we deserve to finish in the position that will allow us to participate in the competition. But Tottenham are better than the Europa League. This tournament does not meet our standards.
Pretty funny to tell the players: “We need two wins to get into the Europa League”. I know that the Europa League is a long tournament there are good teams, including League Champions, making it really difficult.
I just try to motivate guys, because our level — the Champions League. Impossible to have “Sheffield United”, “Wolverhampton” or “Arsenal” motivation was higher.”
For two rounds to finish the Premier League Tottenham is seventh with a gap of one point of the sixth European place, which is “Wolverhampton”.
