The Jose Mourinho era at Tottenham obviously got off to a flying start after a win away at London rivals West Ham and it appears the Portuguese has already picked up admirers for his work in North London.
Can Mourinho win the Champions League?
While Daniel Levy’s decision to axe Mauricio Pochettino last week has seen the likes of Daily Mail journalist Oliver Holt, Mourinho’s track record of winning trophies has seen talkSPORT pundit Danny Mills suggest the former Chelsea boss could deliver the Champions League for his new club.
“The last 16 will be favourable.” ✅
“Could Mourinho get through 3 rounds as an underdog? Without a doubt.”
“He’ll be thinking: There’s no reason we can’t go one better than last season.”

A two-time winner of the club game’s biggest trophy with Porto and Inter Milan, Mills claims the idea of Mourinho acting as an underdog at a club who had little pedigree in the competition prior to last season’s journey to the final could work wonders.
Now, perhaps that sounds a touch ambitious considering the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ took over the Lillywhites while they were in 14th, Roberto di Matteo managed to win the competition with Chelsea after arriving during the 2011-12 season, so it’s not as if its without precedence.
However, as you can imagine, the former Leeds defender’s comment have sparked quite the debate online.
There's another one living on a totally different planet.
