Jose Mourinho: I am 100% Tottenham

Jose Mourinho insists there will be no quick fixes at Tottenham Hotspur and they will be “intelligent” in the January transfer window.

Mourinho has previously admitted his desire to overhaul the Spurs squad, but that possibility will only materialise if he can offload players first.

But Mourinho has revealed he is on the same page with chairman Daniel Levy and the plan is clear.

“That was very clear for me and is very important for me to understand that before I come,” he admitted.

“That’s very simple but in the end what I want is the same as everyone in the club wants.

“It is not I want something and Mr Levy wants another thing. We want the best for the club. That’s obvious and this is not our last transfer window.

“This is our first transfer window, not the last. We are going to have one in the summer, we are going to have one in 2021 January, we are going to have another one in the summer of 2021. So this is not our last transfer window.

“We are going to have to try to be intelligent and we have to try to make the right decisions, not just for now, but for the development of a cycle.”

Jose Mourinho remains on the same page as Daniel Levy 

Mourinho did concede he hopes to add to his squad if it is possible.

“There is not one manager in the world that is not always looking for more,” he said.

“We always want more. You have three goalkeepers, you want four. You have five strikers, you want six. That’s our nature.

“But of course I understand the situation and let’s see what we can do and we have to see if we do something, it’s something that we do not under pressure, it is something that we do also for the future.”​
