The Portuguese boss has hailed his players after they beat Swansea City 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon to move into fourth place in the Premier League
Spurs moved into fourth spot in the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over a Swans side who had beaten their north London rivals Arsenal away from home earlier this season.
And the former Porto boss was keen to talk up the importance of the victory against Michael Laudrup's men.
"The players had the desire to put Swansea under pressure throughout," he told the clubs official website.
"It's difficult because it demands that you put yourself physically in profit for the team.
"You have to be aware because Swansea moved the ball quickly, they don't just lump it, they look to out-play you, to get in behind with their movement and the position of the ball.
"That makes it so difficult and that's why the players were tactically perfect."
