Jose Mourinho has a sly little dig at Mauricio Pochettino after Tottenham Hotspur’s win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jose Mourinho was back to his self-confident ways after his side snatched a very late winner at Molineux.

It took a 91st-minute Vertinghen goal to grab the win for Spurs against Wolves.

After the game, Mourinho spoke to the press.

He admitted the win was hard-fought, but his side demonstrated a tough mentality to overcome their stubborn opponents.

However, he also paid homage to the work that has been done over the few weeks he has been in charge.

It can only be seen as a little dig at his predecessor and a little boost for his own self-confidence.

According to The Mirror, he said:

“Wolves were super dominant at corners and free kicks.”

” We won because we coped so well with the defensive set-pieces.”

“It is something that a couple of weeks ago where Tottenham was struggling, conceding goals in every set piece.”

“But we came here and managed to be very dominating in that area of the game.”
