At the forefront: head coach Jürgen Klopp, who additionally heated up the party with his dance moves. Liverpool head coach Jürgen Klopp (53) has been the English football champion for over 30 years.

" How long it took for Jurgen [ Klopp ] and Liverpool?" said Mourinho . "Four years, four seasons. Buying one of the best goalkeepers in the world, buying Mourinho , whose side failed register a shot on target in a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth on Thursday, also defended his record since taking charge.

Jose Mourinho still believes he can deliver trophies to Tottenham even if he has endured a torrid start to life in north London. The Portuguese was brought to the club to replace Mauricio Pochettino in November but it has been a struggle and his side face a battle just to qualify for the Europa League

José Mourinho is confident that he will soon win a title as Tottenham coach. The Portuguese referred to Jürgen Klopp.

Since José Mourinho has been in North London, i.e. since November 2019, only Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Southampton and Wolverhampton have scored more points than Tottenham in the Premier League.

But that doesn't mean that the Spurs are doing well. On the contrary: With relegation candidate Bournemouth, Tottenham on Thursday evening was the first team since Middlesbrough in March 2015 to fail to score on Cherries. In the league, the Spurs are only ninth before Sunday's Arsenal derby and are on their way to their worst season since 2009.

Klopp put that down to how Jose Mourinho set up. Mourinho : Liverpool did not want to attack in goalless draw. That was obvious but that is completely fine so it looked to me that they wanted a point if they can get three they will take it. They defended with nine players in and around the box.

No need to worry for Mourinho. He could certainly win titles with Tottenham during his three-year contract. "How long did it take Jürgen (Klopp, d. Red.) And Liverpool? Four years, four seasons. They bought the best goalkeeper in the world, they bought the best central defender in the world and so on and so on."

For the first time, Mourinho suspects, maybe it's not about him at all, but about the club. "I don't think of myself. I always say that my ambitions and my DNA are the same, but I may be where I look less at myself and my records and more at the club."

The New Modesty? It looks like this, because "if we don't win a title in the three years", said Mourinho, "but the club will get one in the era afterwards, I'm happy with it".

Tottenham already has the "most beautiful stadium in the world" and the "best training ground in the world", and fans should be grateful to their criticized club boss Daniel Levy for that. "I cannot believe that this season is so full of negative episodes that we have had since day one. There are many reasons to believe that it will get better soon."
