Former Spurs man reckons he knows what Mourinho thinks he can do at Tottenham
By Bruce Grove -

The appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as the manager of Tottenham catapulted Spurs to new heights as a football team.

The Argentinean made them one of the top teams in England, and with the help of players like Harry Kane, they consistently reached the Champions League group stages.

However, they fired him last year and he left them without winning a trophy, something that critics still use to judge him.

He might not have won a trophy for the club, but he helped them to become a top team in England and Europe again, including reaching the final of the Champions League in 2019.

Spurs have replaced him with a man that has won the Champions League twice and has won three Premier League titles in Jose Mourinho.

Jermaine Jenas believes that Spurs made the right appointment and that Mourinho will take them to the next step that Pochettino couldn’t.

“We can’t forget what Poch did for Tottenham,” Jenas told BBC Sport.

“Because he made them Champions League regulars and took them to a whole new stratosphere in terms of their belief levels.

“Mourinho, though, has somehow looked at that blueprint and said ‘it is brilliant but I can make it better because I know the secret ingredient’. That secret ingredient is a desire to win.”

Mourinho will have an attitude of not wanting to lose rather than let’s see if we can win. Nothing wrong with that, especially when playing away at Chelsea. A point would be a very good result. I can’t wait to see the free flowing, end to end, nail biting extravaganza that is surely to be served before us! I have my slippers, duvet and night nurse at the ready.

A draw at their pitch would be no disgrace, but knowing Jose he will have a master plan ready for our lads to complete to the letter.

Chelsea are better than when we beat them in the cup earlier this season, but so are we.

Rodon or Tanganga will have to put in a great Performance beside Dier of which I have no doubt.

…..you realise they will talk about us even more after this … 😉

I’m hoping this is more Man.U than Man.C

Starting with our imminent “Battle of the Bridge”, confronted with some tough fixtures ahead when if conquered is the stuff of potential champions, now that we are entering the crucial month of the day of reckoning yes it’s probably make or break time en route to finally accomplishing the holy grail or quickly collapsing like a pack of cards to an all too familiar nearly label of yet another Spursy powder puff false dawn!! Comforted by a manger controlling a strong squad having rediscovered his lost mojo lets hope exciting times lie around the corner to eventually winning a deserved pot of silverware!!
