Ljungberg impressed by Mourinho’s tactics said:
“I haven’t recovered yet. It was tough but Mourinho gave us a lesson in how to play a tactical game.”
“It was interesting but it still hurts. I thought Spurs, I didn’t think they would be that far ahead or top of the league to be honest.”
“But you look at Mourinho, he’s got them inspired, his players are all doing what he wants them to do which I think is the hardest thing when you play the kind of football he does.”
“Hats off to him, they’re doing really, really well.”

competition as they head to face their opponents on Thursday.
