JOSE MOURINHO claims tiredness is for losers.
The Manchester United boss yesterday laughed off claims some of his title rivals have already run out of steam.
And he rubbished suggestions the likes of Tottenham stars Harry Kane and Eric Dier are suffering World Cup hangovers.
England captain Kane in particular has struggled to find his best form this season and Mauricio Pochettino’s side have lost their last three games.
But Mourinho reckons those who claim to be tired are imagining it – because it is all in their heads.
“Bad results and bad performances, they make you look more tired, more upset, more ugly, more everything.
“Football is a little bit like this. A team that yesterday looked very bad, today looks very good and yesterday, looked very good, today looks very bad.”
United had Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford involved in the World Cup until the final weekend.
“I think the happiness, the confidence, the self-esteem was what pushed him to play the first match against Leicester, almost without training and played a very good match.
“It’s more about the moment and the momentum, like you like to call it, is very important in the positive and negative way.”
Ironically United lost 3-0 at home to Tottenham last month before their recent slump.
