Jose Mourinho is always good for a quote or two during his press conferences and this was certainly true of his first presser as Tottenham boss on Thursday where "The Special One" outlined his metamorphosis into "The Humble One".
He has been out of management for nearly a year after being sacked by Manchester United last December but insists he is ready for the challenge.
"I don't want to make big changes, I want to respect the base and the work that they did for five-and-a-half years, not two days", Mourinho said.
"During my career I made mistakes, I'm not going to make the same mistakes, I mean I'm going to make new mistakes."". I'm going to make new mistakes. "Manchester past year, to analyse my career, the problems and the solutions". There was no one else to blame. "These 11 months were a time to analyze, to rethink, to prepare and anticipate things". You never lose your DNA.
But there's a lot of work to be done between now and any potential title bid, as they sit 14th in the Premier League table, without an away win in the league since January and 11 points off the top four.
