Jose Mourinho has left Tottenham fans dreaming of another Premier League title charge after insisting it is possible for them to win it next season.

The 56-year-old was speaking in his first interview since taking over from Mauricio Pochettino.

Asked whether he could repeat the feat of fulfilling his promise at Porto of making them Champions in his second season, Mourinho said: “We cannot win the Premier League this season.

"We can – I’m not saying we will – we can win it next season.”

Spurs currently sit 14th in the table with just three wins from their 12 games so far this season.

"Humble enough to try and analyse my career - not just the last year, but the whole thing, the evolution, the problems and the solutions. Not to blame anyone else.

"It was a great thing. I went really deep with that analysis. A break was very positive for me. It was the first summer I did not work and I felt a little bit at a loss during that pre-season.

"I was always humble, in my way. The problem is you didn't understand that."
