Jurgen Klinsmann claims Mourinho’s ‘nastiness’ will lead Tottenham to PL title
Mourinho took over the reins at the club in November last year and did a good job to lead us to a sixth-place finish, considering that we were 14th when he took over. And, having had a largely successful summer transfer window, things have taken a turn for the better under the Portuguese.
Indeed, Tottenham have made a fine start to the new season and currently occupy the second place in the Premier League table. This has led to talks of a potential title challenge and Klinsmann seems to reckon that under Jose, the club can push for the top honours. (h/t Express)
“Yeah [they’re challengers] and I think rightfully so, rightfully so. I think it’s a logical path. I think over the past couple of weeks, months, we see something is growing stronger and stronger. Obviously, Jose Mourinho has a strong hand in this whole development and he’s a competitor.”
Klinsmann further went on to add that the ‘nastiness’ and the ‘aggression’ that Mourinho brings to the table will give Tottenham the edge in the race for the title. (h/t Express)
“What Jose Mourinho definitely does, has done really well over the stretch of his entire career, is he has this piece of nastiness and he transfers that type of nastiness, that type of aggression to his players.”
