The Debate: Will Spurs win a trophy under Jose Mourinho?

In association with Budweiser


Tottenham parted company with Mauricio Pochettino in November and Jose Mourinho was appointed manager less than 12 hours later.

Pochettino was one win away from winning the Champions League with Spurs but they came up short against Liverpool in the final on June 1 in Madrid.

The Argentine spent five and a half years at Spurs and consistently got the club into Europe’s premium competition but he didn’t win any silverware.

Enter Jose Mourinho, a manager who has won trophies wherever he has gone. You only had to look at the second line of the club statement when confirming the appointment of the Portuguese.

It read: “Jose is one of the world’s most accomplished managers having won 25 senior trophies”.

Spurs haven’t won a trophy since 2008 when they lifted the League Cup under Juande Ramos.

Mourinho’s tenure at Manchester United didn’t end well but by the time he finished up, he had won the League Cup and Europa League as well as reaching an FA Cup final.

Since his appointment it’s been a mixed bag for Mourinho, who is without his captain Harry Kane for the rest of the season.

We have a fair idea that when Mourinho does leave Spurs in however many years, it will be the right time for all parties involved but can he add to that haul of 25 senior trophies.
