Tottenham has managed eight league victories since Mourinho took over, including three successive wins heading into Saturday’s clash at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues winning against their former boss in December. Tottenham who were beaten in their last match by RB Leipzig in the Champions League sits fifth behind Chelsea in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho maintains that his greatest achievement as a manager would be to lead Tottenham to a top-four finish in the Premier League, in the absence of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
“Would a top-four finish be my greatest feat? In these circumstances, yes,” he told a press conference on Friday.
“Sonny and Harry score the majority of Tottenham goals. If we manage to finish fourth without Harry and Sonny would be something incredible for the boys.”
“We have to give everything we have.”
Following the UEFA ban on City, if Spurs maintain their position on the table, they would seal a Champion’s League spot next season.
“I am but that’s not about me. Not about me,” he told the press when asked if he was proud of Tottenham’s position in the league table.
“But we went from there to be one point behind the top four. Amazing effort by everyone. So now that we’re in this position, we earned the right to fight for it.” He added.
