Jose Mourinho wants to win a fourth Premier League title with Tottenham
Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has expressed his desire to add to his three Premier League winners’ medals.
Mourinho has been in charge of the North London side since December after he replaced Argentinian manager Mauricio Pochettino who had guided Spurs to their first Champions League final in the previous season.
Mourinho said: “I prefer to think that I’m going to have a fourth Premier League trophy.
“I have three, I prefer to think I’m going to have a fourth.”
The two-time Champions League winner last won the Premier League in 2015, and has since been fired from management on two separate occasions, both at Chelsea and Manchester United.
Mourinho, aged 57, has won eight league titles, in four different countries – across a managerial career spanning 20 years.
However, he is yet to win a trophy with the North London side, and has seen the club eliminated from two competitions in his short stewardship.
Tottenham currently sit eighth in the Premier League table on 41 points.
The self-proclaimed ‘special one’ is one place and two points behind Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United, who won promotion to the top flight from the Championship last season.
Equally Spurs, who haven’t won a trophy since 2008 – when they won the League Cup under the management of Juande Ramos, are seven points behind London rivals Chelsea who currently occupy fourth place, in the race for European football next season.
With the spread of Covid-19 affecting the completion of the 2019/20 season, it may be some time before the Portuguese manager can target a fourth first division title.
With the current suspension of the league, Mourinho added: “I miss football.
“I miss our world.”
