Jose Mourinho hails players after 'very important' Tottenham win over Wolves

Jose Mourinho the head coach / manager of Tottenham Hotspur during the Premier League match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux.

Mourinho is getting the best and more from Spurs. There have been small signs since he took over at Tottenham of the old Jose Mourinho -- the good Jose Mourinho, the one you probably hated if you didn't support his team but definitely loved if you did. 

But perhaps Tottenham's 2-1 win over Wolves on Sunday was the biggest one yet, a victory achieved with a late header that was frankly a robbery, Wolves arguably aggrieved they didn't get all three points, let alone none at all.

"It's one of these victories where quality is not enough," said Mourinho after the game. "If you're not a team, a real team, in the real sense of what the word 'team' means, it's impossible.

"[Tottenham's players] are very, very good. I tell that before the match, and I tell the same after the match."

Mourinho's most basic remit is to get the best from this squad, to make them more than the sum of their parts, because his predecessor had seemingly lost the ability to. Results like this suggest he's getting towards doing just that.
