If its up to Mourinho, Tottenham will be in the next Champions League

After two days of work, Mourinho tests his new team tomorrow against West Ham.

The London derby is essential for the aspirations of the team. Spurs are in 14th place after securing only 14 points from 12 games. Check out Mourinho’s results in his first five matches for Chelsea (first season and first after returning) and for Manchester United:



Tottenham’s next five games:

After eleven months out of football, the ‘special one’ is back in business. Yesterday he met with the press for a long talk, almost an hour long, Mourinho talked about the chances of Tottenham this season, what he got from the sabbatical time, Chelsea’s fans reaction on moving to rival and how he changed his way thinking. You can check the highlights below:

Mauricio Pochettino

” I have to speak about Mauricio. I have to congratulate him for the work he did and I have to share with you what we already shared indoors which is this club will always be his home. This training ground will always be his training ground. He can come when he wants. When he misses the players, misses the people he worked with, the door is always open for him. From my experience, tomorrow is another day and he will find happiness again, he will find a great club again and he will have a great future.”

Period without a club

” I am humble, I am humble enough to try to analyse which was what I did, to try to analyse my career, not just the last year but to analyse the evolution, the problems, the solutions. I was humble enough for that. The principle of the analysis was not to blame anyone else.”

“We cannot win the Premier League this season. We can – I’m not saying we will do – we can win it next season.”

Opinion: the curious case of Tottenham Hotspur

Mr. Chelsea

 “No. I think they have to see me as Mr Inter, Mr Real Madrid, Mr Porto. I think they have to see me as Mr Club. Everywhere I go, as I used to say in a funny way, I arrive, where the pajamas for the club. I even sleep with the pajamas. I even wear the tracksuit, you confuse the tracksuit with the pajamas.”

Tottenham as the biggest challenge

“I see every challenge with the same responsibility. I cannot answer in a very objective way. I don’t even feel it is about me. I understand people will look at me, about myself. I understand that when a top player goes to a club people will focus on their success. But I don’t think it is about him, it is about team success.”
