This is coming barely days that Mourinho claimed that he is the best manager in world football despite seeing his side lose to the Hammers over the weekend.
Asked whether results have made him doubt his methods, the 58-year-old told Sky Sports via SunSport: “No, not at all. Not at all. Zero. Sometimes results are a consequence of multiple situations in football.”
Mourinho has also stated that despite the unimpressive form of his team in the Premier League lately, Spurs can still make top four. Spurs had a sensational start to the season as the were on top of the standings for some time before they saw themselves down the ladder following dismal run of recent results.
