Jose Mourinho responds to “Mr. Chelsea” tag, insists he doesn’t need new signings to succeed at Tottenham

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has denied the notion that he is Mr. Chelsea, the tag he got because of his relationship with the Stamford Bridge club having had two stints with the Blues as their manager.

The Portuguese was appointed as Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement on Wednesday morning, just 12 hours after the Argentine’s sacking.

The former Chelsea boss said:”I think they have to see me as Mr Inter, Mr Real Madrid, Mr Porto. I am a club man, but a many clubs man.

“I am not Chelsea, I am not Inter, I am not Real Madrid, I am all of them. I gave everything to all of them and that is what I am going to give here.

“I decided to have this adventure, go to different countries, until what I call the grand slam, England, Spain and Italy. I did it with this passion and then the Premier League, I thought, is my natural habitat.”

Mourinho insists he doesn’t need new signings to be successful at Tottenham.

“The best gift are the players who are here. I don’t need new players. I just need to get to know these ones better,” he told reporters.

“I know them well but you never know them well enough until you meet them.

“I told the players I came here because of them. I tried to buy some for different clubs and some I didn’t even try because you know how difficult it was.”

He will be in charge for Tottenham’s trip to West Ham on Saturday afternoon.
