We concede two goals in each one of my four matches but we score in all of them, and we could have scored even more than what we did.

But you are right, we are conceding too much, and we are conceding some what I used to call cheap goals." LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (NOVEMBER 25, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 3.

When we speak about defence we speak normally about the keepers, about the centre backs, the mistakes we do at the back, that's not the way I look at things.

So I don't look to the individual I look to the defensive process, and defensive process belongs to 11 players on the pitch.

It's in our organization that we have to resolve our problems, it's not with one player, it's not with one signing it's a process." LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (NOVEMBER 25, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 7.

I think after a defeat you cannot be sad, you have to be more than that.

I don't know in English how to find a word for that but you have to be like raging, you have to be angry not sad, because to be sad is not going to resolve your problems. You need that reaction, you need that mentality." LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (NOVEMBER 25, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 8.

The only thing that is very very objective is that the player at the end of the season is a free agent.

That's the only thing that we know on the pragmatic point of view, apart from that we cannot comment." LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (NOVEMBER 25, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 11.

MOURINHO WALKING STORY: Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has called for a collective effort to plug their leaky defence which has conceded "cheap goals" in his first four matches in charge of the club.

Since Mourinho took over from Mauricio Pochettino last month, Spurs have conceded eight goals in all competitions, with the north London club failing to keep a single clean sheet.

"We have to sort out our defence without losing what we have in attack.

We concede two goals in each one of my four matches but we score in all of them, and we could have scored even more than what we did.

But you are right, we are conceding too much, and we are conceding some what I used to call cheap goals," Mourinho told a news conference on the eve of Saturday's home match in the league against Burnley.

"It's not the defence, it's the defensive process which is a difficult thing.

When we speak about defence we speak normally about the keepers, about the centre backs, the mistakes we do at the back, that's not the way I look at things.

So I don't look to the individual I look to the defensive process, and defensive process belongs to 11 players on the pitch.

It's in our organization that we have to resolve our problems, it's not with one player, it's not with one signing it's a process." Mourinho's return to Old Trafford on Wednesday ended in a 2-1 defeat by Manchester United that left Spurs eighth in the standings -- nine points away from Champions League places.

It was Mourinho's first defeat after winning his first three matches in charge and the Portuguese boss said the defeat should fuel the squad's anger instead of casting a pall of gloom ahead of a busy schedule this month.

"I saw a sad dressing room, a sad bus and a sad plane, and that's not what I like after a defeat.

I think after a defeat you cannot be sad, you have to be more than that.

"You have to be like raging, you have to be angry not sad, because to be sad is not going to resolve your problems. You need that reaction, you need that mentality." Mourinho also refused to divulge his discussions with influential midfielder Christian Eriksen, who is free to leave the club when his contract ends this season.

"My feelings are until I have anything official rather than hypothetical things and speculation, there is not much to comment," Mourinho said.

"The only thing that is very very objective is that the player at the end of the season is a free agent.

That's the only thing that we know." (Production: Andy Ragg)
