Top four finish with Spurs to be one of Jose Mourinho’s best achievements
Jose Mourinho had once remarked that finishing second at Manchester United is one of the biggest achievements of his storied career. It’s a big claim coming from a manager who has won three Premier League titles at Chelsea, the La Liga at Real Madrid and two trebles at Inter Milan and Porto where he won the UEFA Champions League.
According to the Guardian, the Portuguese tactician believes that a top-four finish with Tottenham this year will rank among his best as he continues to struggle through an injury crisis in the attack.
Speaking to the press prior to his return to Stamford Bridge, the 57-year-old underlined the importance of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min as goalscorers for his team. Mourinho pointed out that the duo tends to score most of his team’s goals. The point rings true as the pair has combined to fifty percent of Spurs’ goals this season.
“Tottenham without Harry or Sonny, without one of them, doesn’t win a match since 2014.
“If we manage to finish top four it’s something incredible. Incredible achievement for the boys. So we have to give everything we have.”
To be able to finish top four in spite of his goal machines being unavailable will be a testament to his team’s ability and Mourinho has urged his team to give it all they have got.
Just Another Game for Mourinho
The Spurs boss played down his return to Stamford Bridge where he won seven major trophies in his two spells. He ended Chelsea’s 49-year wait for a title when they won the English Premier League in 2004.
Mourinho denied it being a special occasion for him while reiterating his complete commitment to Tottenham. He also admitted that it is always a pleasure to see Lampard. The boss congratulated his team for climbing up the ladder and getting to within a point of top four and called the race for top four to be a ‘good test’ for his side.
