Tottenham midfielder Winks reveals 'honest conversation' with Mourinho

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks has revealed no-holds-barred talks with manager Jose Mourinho.

Winks has started Spurs' last nine games in all competitions ahead of the clash against Wolves but when Mourinho arrived it took him a while to nail down a regular starting spot.

"I had an honest chat with the manager and he told me what he believed I needed to do," said Winks. "It was just an honest conversation, which I respect massively. It started with training.

"I just think my whole level and just the intensity as well, which I said to the manager that I agree. Since we had that conversation things have improved and I have been playing more and it is important that I keep those levels and intensity because I want to stay in the team."
