Son responds to claims Mourinho has lost the Tottenham dressing room

Son Heung-Min insists Jose Mourinho still has the support of the Tottenham Hotspur players. 

Spurs go into Thursday night's Europa League tie with Wolfsberg on a run of just one win in six games.

Coupled with their poor form has been the limited involvement of both Dele Alli and Gareth Bale this season. Serge Aurier has also been reintegrated to the side following a half-time argument with Mourinho during last month's defeat at home to Liverpool.

But Son says Mourinho still has the backing of the squad, "The rumours are just rumours.

"Our changing room has been fantastic. Obviously it depends on the results, I'm very sad if we lose and happy when we win. It's like everyone else.

"The mood went down when we had a couple of bad results but the dressing room hasn't changed.

"Everyone is happy and having a laugh and focused on every game. It is a bad rumour."

And Son says Spurs players mustn't let their chins drop, despite the poor recent run of results.

"Obviously we dropped some points in the league and we are out of the FA Cup which is sad and if you think like this it is negative but we are also in the Europa League and the final of the Carabao Cup and we have to think positive," the Korean said.

"The past is the past and we have to think positive. This is another important fixture and we are focused on this big competition and go there with good positive energy to get the win,

"We dropped points because of the mistakes made but we have spoken among the players. We want it more, we want to work hard, as players and a human being we know we can do better."
