“We’d win in another league” – Mourinho honest about Tottenham title aspirations
Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho was honest about his team’s chances of winning the title.
Spurs are second in the Premier League after eight matches played, with Liverpool on the same points score as well.
And Mourinho thinks Tottenham have a championship caliber team, but admits it is difficult to win the Premier League.
“When a team is champion or plays for the title, there is always a direct relation to your direct opponents,” he told reporters.
“I would say that this team could be champions in many European countries.
“The Premier League is the most difficult one to be, because in the Premier League you can do a good season, can have lots of points, but in the end: Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Man United, Leicester, Arsenal. So you can have a good season and not be champion.
“So what can we do? We go match after match. We try to win, we don’t care about the others.
“I promise you I’m not worried about Leicester v Wolves, or City v Liverpool. If Liverpool wins, it is because City loses points. If Leicester wins, it is because Wolves dropped points.
“So I don’t care, I just want the team to play match after match, and then at the end of the season let’s see where we are.”
