Jose Mourinho Says Guiding Spurs To Top Four Would Be The Biggest Achievement Of His Career

Jose Mourinho Says Guiding Spurs To Top Four Would Be The Biggest Achievement Of His Career

Jose Mourinho has won the Champions League with two different clubs and won league titles in England, Italy and Spain but the Portuguese manager believes getting into top four with Spurs this season would be his best achievement.

Mourinho took the reins at the North London outfit in November following the dismissal of Mauricio Pochettino and his win ratio currently stands at 52.4%, having won 11, drew four and lost six of the 21 games he's been in charge for.

Spurs are currently in fifth place in the Premier League on 40 points, one point behind next opponents Chelsea.

But with Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son sidelined to long-term injuries, Mourinho has made the big claim about how big an accomplishment it would be to secure Champions League football again.

Speaking at today's press conference, he said: "This season was so negatively special that we are going to be without them both at the same time for a lot of matches. [It won't be] for my achievement, [but] collectively the team, for this group of boys.

"If we manage to finish fourth without Harry and Sonny it will be something incredible, an incredible achievement for the boys so we have to give everything."

Mourinho has doubled down on previous comments when he said that, amongst all the silverware and glory, finishing second to Manchester City's 'Centurions' in the 2017/18 Premier League campaign with Manchester United was the best achievement of his career.

It's the latest case of 'classic Jose' and comes days after the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss joked about signing Peter Crouch because of how limited his striker options are at present.
