Tottenham boss Mourinho: I'll win trophies here

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is confident of bringing silverware to the club.

Mourinho is reeling from news £27million winger Steven Bergwijn is out for the season with an ankle issue.

But despite his injury-hit side facing meltdown, Mourinho promised to end their 12-year trophy drought.

Ahead of their Champions League second-leg clash at RB Leipzig, he said: "I believe Spurs is not going to be my only club without silverware. I've won it at every club and I believe I am going to do it also with Tottenham."

Mourinho also remarked: “I've been here for three or four months. I got the team in a very difficult situation — and now it is even more difficult.

“But I believe in me, in the players, in the club and I believe that during my three-and-a-half-year deal I will help the club to do it.

“Against Leipzig the mental side is very important. Sometimes you win on quality, on options, on a phenomenal bench to turn a match around.

“But at this moment, that's not our case. We have a very small group of players giving everything they can.

“If we make it, it will be more based on fantastic empathy within the group.

“It's easy to have a good group when the situation is amazing and more difficult when the situation is hard.

“But I am with the boys — and hopefully can help them."
