"He had to change, and work in a different way, is to his credit. Yes, he is playing and playing well. We are happy with him. But, I repeat, it's total credit to Tanguy." Mourinho said.
's head coach,
believes that if a player is a hardworking performer or a bad one, it is all the responsibility of the player himself.
"I always say, and I've really felt it all through my career, that the big responsibility for good and for bad is [with] the player.
"We don't make miracles. We don't make players when they have no quality and when they have no desire and no discipline and no motivation. So for good or bad, it's always the player's responsibility and we are the ones who can try to help.
"Sometimes they are open for that and other times they are not. When they are not, there is nothing you can do, but when they are open, you feel that motivation to help them.
He then expressed his opinion aboutTanguy Ndombele
. He said that the $73 million signing was not in a good position but he performs well now:
"When Tanguy arrived here his condition was not good. When I arrived he was getting small injury after small injury which I believe was his responsibility.
"And for him to realize that he had to change, and work in a different way, is to his credit. Yes, he is playing and playing well. We are happy with him. But, I repeat, it's total credit to Tanguy."
The 57-year-old said that the premier League top situation will go under a lot of changes as there are postponed matches yet to be held on. He said: "
You can look at the table, but you need to look also at how many matches a team has played or how many have been at home."
"You can, for example, look at [Manchester United] and say, yes they are leaders of the table, but they have already lost in two competitions, the Champions League and the Carabao Cup."
