"I really like this squad and looking to the young players – there is not one manager in the world that doesn't like to play young players and to help young players to develop – not one," Mourinho said to Tottenham's official website .
"The problem is that sometimes you get into clubs where the work that is below you is not good enough to produce these players, so I look to our history and you see that the academy is always giving the talents that the first team need. Of course I look forward to [working] with that profile.
"To play against Tottenham at White Hart Lane was always hard but beautiful. It was one of these places where I used to go with passion but also with respect. I always [spoke] about the club's potential. I always [spoke] about the qualities of the players. I always [spoke about] the magnificent work the club was doing."
