Tottenham can win the Premier League, says 'humble' Mourinho

The Pochettino/Mourinho swap has proved to be a controversial one among the Spurs faithful.

Mourinho began his first public statement as Tottenham head coach by praising his predecessor, saying that the door is always open for him to return if he misses the players and coaching staff and that he is sure that he will find success in his next job.

"I realised that during my career, I made mistakes and I'm not going to make the same mistakes".

If Mourinho gets off to a flier, Tottenham will have momentum and when the Special One has that and he's happy, the rest of the PL will be wary.

"I am humble. I am humble enough to analyse my career, and the problems".

"The principle of the analysis was not to blame anyone else".

The difficulty will be for Jose Mourinho is whether he can win over the fans quickly.

"I don't want to make big changes, I want to respect the base and the work that they did for five-and-a-half years, not two days", Mourinho said. A January move would give the player some time to adapt while Alderweireld and Vertonghen are still at the club. The moment that Mourinho walked into his first press conference on Wednesday, he was met with an nearly stunned silence when sitting in front of the world's media.

And of course Mourinho was one of those candidates being bandied about in the speculation of who might replace Silva when that talk was at its height back in October.

"I had a feeling I was going to get a club mid-season", he said. Four years later, he was asked about that remark at his Tottenham opening Press Conference.

Much of the coverage around Mourinho's appointment has focused on whether he will bring a perceived arrogance into the role, a trait many believe causes him to overlook his own role in a club's failings.

All three have become England players, and Kane in particular, is now one of the best strikers in the world and a player who would command a transfer fee of several hundred million pounds.

"Maybe he thinks it's just another job, possibly he might be giving Chelsea the two fingers on goal, but in his heart of hearts he knows he has extinguished any lingering love Chelsea fans may have him, though I doubt he's that bothered. I know them well but you never know them well enough until you meet them".
