Jose Mourinho says Spurs his only club ahead of Premier League return
New Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has asked the Spurs fans to not view him as 'Mr. Chelsea'. Instead, he maintains that he will give his new employers his all.
The Portuguese manager enjoyed two successful spells at Stamford Bridge before being given the sack unceremoniously by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. The 56-year-old is arguably one of the greatest managers for Chelsea and brought three Premier League titles to the Bridge in his two spells.
Will Jose Mourinho make a winning start as the manager of Tottenham Hotspur?
In his first press conference as the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Mourinho has called Spurs his only passion and his only club.
"I think they have to see me as Mr. Inter, Mr. Real Madrid, Mr. Porto. I am a club man, but a many clubs man."
"I have always said the Premier League is my natural habitat is where I am most loved is where I felt if I had the option is the league and the country that I considered the best and found most enjoyable and where I am really happy."
"When you decide to stay more years in the country – I think Mr Wenger was probably the last of that generation of big era in football clubs, Sir Alex and Mr. Wenger."
"Now I only have one shirt and only one passion and only one thing in my mind which is my club and that is Spurs."
"I won the Champions League with Porto and three months later I was playing against Porto – that is life."
"I’m not Chelsea, I’m not United, I’m not Real Madrid, I’m not Inter – I am all of them, I gave everything to all of them and that is what I am going to do here, give everything.”
