Tottenham breathed a sigh of relief in North Macedonia on Thursday night after beating Shkendija in Europa League qualifying.

Erik Lamela gave Spurs an early lead but a number of missed chances allowed the hosts to draw level midway through the second half.

Thankfully the quality of Son Heung-min and Harry Kane shone through once again, with the pair both scoring to make it 3-1.

The Londoners had done enough with 10 minutes remaining, by which time Mourinho was telling his players to conserve their energy.

Listen carefully to the video below and you can hear Mourinho instructing Son not to run and telling the rest of the team to simply keep the ball.

“No runs, Sonny, no running,” says the Spurs boss. “Pass again, pass again. Keep the ball, guys.”
