JOSE MOURINHO promised to live, breath and even SLEEP Spurs as he claimed: We can win the title next year.
Mourinho wants to demonstrate to fans his total commitment after succeeding Mauricio Pochettino as boss.
And the ex-Chelsea and Manchester United chief insisted he is ready to “sleep in Tottenham pyjamas” to show his dedication to the cause.
Mourinho said: “Every club I go to, I wear the pyjamas of the club and I even sleep with the pyjamas.
“If the fans see me as Mr Chelsea they also have to see me as Mr Inter, Mr Real Madrid, Mr Porto. They have to see me as Mr Club.
“I work in the tracksuit and I sleep in the pyjamas. That’s the way I am. I am a club man, but a many club man.”
Mourinho declared during his second spell at Stamford Bridge that he would NEVER consider taking charge at Spurs out of respect to the Blues fans.
Reminded of that, he swiftly responded: “That was before I was sacked! It’s modern football.
“I have always felt the Premier League is my natural habitat. It’s the football country and league that is the best and most enjoyable and where I am really happy.
“But three years ago when I went to United, if I’d stayed in England only for Chelsea, I would have to be waiting for a third opportunity.
“Probably another Premier League won because every time I go there I win the Premier League but I went to United with a free mind and a free heart.
“Now it’s about Spurs. I can be really happy here, make people happy. We cannot win the Premier League this season. But we can – I’m not saying we will do – we can win it next season.
“And now there’s not a bigger Spurs fan in the world than me, nobody who wants Spurs to win and be successful more than I do.
“Chelsea is the past, a great past, two periods, two periods with titles. But it’s the past. Now this is my club, these are my fans.”
