Jose Mourinho has ruled out all the rumours about him facing discomfort at Tottenham Hotspur. Mourinho admitted that the job at Tottenham is a difficult one. However, he is very happy with the club and is looking forward to the future. 'The Special One' was brought in as Mauricio Pochettino's replacement in November 2019. Pochettino started the 2019-20 season on a very poor note. He was axed following the club's dip in form. Spurs were placed in the second half of the table and were trailing by 14 points from the Champions League zone when Jose Mourinho was appointed.

Jose Mourinho, in a recent interview with Sky Sports, said that he is satisfied with his decision to join Tottenham and is already looking forward to strengthening his side in the next transfer window.

"Contrary to some people who want to be in the news and tell things that are not true - I am really happy at the club. You know me quite well, enough to know that I am really happy. Difficult? Yes, but if it was not difficult it wouldn't be for me. I like the players and who they are. I like very much the relationship I have with them. If you see a bad face from me it is because of a bad result. I cannot change myself. That's just me. The reality is that I am happy and I look forward to what is coming, and even more for what is coming next season. I want to start working with them in July," said Jose Mourinho.
