Post the dismissal of long-term coach Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham Hotspur announced the appointment of UEFA Champions League-winning coach Jose Mourinho as the new manager of the North London club. During his second spell at Stamford Bridge, Jose Mourinho insisted that he would never manage Tottenham out of respect for Chelsea fans. However, 12 years later, Mourinho spoke about how that feeling has changed considering the fact that he was 'sacked' by Roman Abramovich and Co. Jose Mourinho might still be attached to Chelsea and hold his former club close to his heart but he is adamant that Tottenham Hotspur is his home now. Despite Tottenham’s dismal start to the campaign under Pochettino, Jose Mourinho remains highly optimistic that he can improve the club's performances in the coming months. The Portuguese tactician also added that as per his opinion, Tottenham can challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the title next season.
