Tottenham Hotspur boss, Jose Mourinho, explained why RB Leipzig thrashed his side 3-0 in the UEFA Champions League round of 16-second-leg tie.
Mourinho said RB Leipzig beat Tottenham because Julian Nagelsmann’s side was the night’s best team, adding that his squad is in trouble with a lot of injury woes.
RB Leipzig defeated Spurs at the Red Bull Arena, thanks to two goals from Marcel Sabitzer and a strike from Emil Forsberg.
“Indeed the best team won, physicality, rhythm, in top condition with their best players and a bench full of quality against a team that is in trouble,” Mourinho was quoted Football London as saying after the match.
“Yesterday I was very positive, but that’s the way I have to be.
“I know that automatically my team will improve next season with these injured players.
“We’ll improve in other areas, but I will not tell you right now how I analyze.”
Tottenham’s next fixture is against Manchester United on Sunday.
