Jose Mourinho ‘frustrated’ at Tottenham’s lack of killer instinct following Wolves draw as Romain Saiss says Wanderers ‘deserved victory’ December 28, 2020 – Posted in: Soccer

Jose Mourinho admitted he was ‘frustrated’ that Tottenham could not kill the game off after his side conceded a late equaliser to share a point with Wolves at Molineux.

Tanguy Ndombele’s strike after just one minute was cancelled on by Roman Saiss’ header late on as Spurs missed the chance to go third in the Premier League.

Asked if he was angry with the result, he told Sky Sports: “I am. One point against Wolves normally wouldn’t be a bad result because they are a strong opponent.

“But scoring a goal in the first minute and having the control of the game for the rest of it and having 89 minutes to score more goals is frustrating.”

Asked to explain the fact that his side’s last effort on target came in the 21st minute of the game, Mourinho added: “I don’t want to say much.

“I know the way I prepare the team, I know what I asked of the players, I know what I told them at half-time. I know all that and I don’t want to say much more than that.

“I give some credit to Wolves, of course, because by losing, they put some pressure on us, pressure that we coped quite well with, controlling the game very, very well.

“But we didn’t have that ambition, that desire to go for more.”

Wolves’ saviour Saiss admitted he and his teammates were disappointed to have come away with only a draw.

He told Sky Sports: “I think we can be disappointed because we started the game and we conceded a poor goal. I think we can avoid this kind of goal and after, it’s harder when you are playing this team like Tottenham to come back.

“But I think we controlled the game and even with the draw, I think we deserved more because we created a lot of chances and we scored only one goal.

“But that’s a good mentality. We have to keep it for the next few games and avoid this kind of goal because after, it demands a lot of effort to come back in the game.”
