Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho: I'm the same man since Porto

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho insists he hasn't changed since his days with Porto.

Mourinho is adamant his winning desire remains as always.

“I am the same man, with the same principles and the same passion, nothing has changed. Well, obviously the color of my hair, yes, I have some grey hair," he joked. “Yes I have evolved as a coach, in everything related to football, but as a person I am the same.

“I love everything related to my work, except losing. I hate to lose. I understand that it is related to football but it is only that, I love everything I do and I don't see myself doing anything else. There is nothing about my job that I don't enjoy, even with problems and difficulties. The challenge is to be happy, happy, happy.

"Being a coach is very complex, it's not just doing an eleven every Sunday. If people think it's just about leading a dressing room, they're wrong. There are many things and they are my job, and that is why I love it."
