Jose Mourinho has vowed to reverse Tottenham's fortunes as the Portuguese gave his first interview since taking over from Mauricio Pochettino at the Premier League club.

He is renowned for his tactical prowess and has managed FC Porto, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Ekstra Bladet get straight to the point and say Mourinho going to Tottenham is "terrible" for Eriksen, and they've done some research to explain why.

The yawning gap to leaders Liverpool stands at 20 points after 12 games, but Mourinho lavished praise on his new squad and claimed a first league title for Spurs since 1960-61 in 2020-21 is possible.

On Tottenham's current lowly standing, Mourinho added: "In the Premier League, we know where we are and we know we don't belong there". You never lose your DNA, you never lose your identity, but I have time to think about many things.
