Jason Cundy says that Jose Mourinho has his Tottenham team playing with a handbrake on at the moment because he doesn’t trust them to defend.
The Special One has made Spurs one of the top teams in England this season, and he has them competing for the Premier League title.
But they have had to rely on a defensive style of play which sees them fall back to defend after taking the lead in some games instead of adventurously going on and trying to find more goals.
Cundy reckons that Mourinho has had to set his team up to play with the handbrake on because he doesn’t trust his defenders and his team as a defending unit.
He even claims that he has never seen Mourinho set his team up in a defensive manner, as he has seen him do at Tottenham this season.
“He’s playing with the handbrake up at the moment – and more so now than I ever saw at Chelsea or Manchester United,” said The Sports Bar host on Talksport.
“I don’t think he trusts his defence. I don’t think he trusts them as a unit defensively, therefore you see the handbrake coming on.”
Spurs have achieved some success with their defensive style of play, perhaps it just needs to be tweaked a little to get them more success.
