Modric has backed Jose Mourinho to bring trophies to this Tottenham team
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has been backed to deliver trophies by ex-star Luka Modric.
Mourinho has had a stuttering start to life as Tottenham boss and just about salvaged a top six place last season and the chance to play in the Europa League this coming seasons.
But there have been doubts that the man that couldnt stop winning trophies, will be able to give Tottenham the one thing they have been missing in recent seasons, a nice new trophy to add to that cabinet.
Mourinho has picked up major silverware at every single club he’s managed, most notably winning three Premier League titles over the course of two spells at Chelsea and conquering the Champions League with both Porto and Inter.
He even managed to win the Carabao Cup and Europa League during his previous role at Manchester United, and Modric has opened up and told fans that Mourinho is the man that will lead the club to success.
Asked if Mourinho is capable of ushering in a new era of success at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Modric told The Times: “Yes, definitely.
“I have a special affection for him, for everything he meant for me. Tottenham did a great thing to appoint him as a manager because he is a proven winner.
“In Italy, England and Spain he won things and he knows how to win. I am hoping he manages to do the same thing with Spurs.
“It’s a great thing for Tottenham to be able to bring in someone like him.
“He wins everywhere. Even when people say, ‘Ah, he didn’t win in Manchester [United]’. He won the Europa League and other cups [League Cup in the 2016-17 season] because of his quality.
“He knows how to transport his energy to the players. If I had to say one thing [that he does differently to other managers] it is how he prepares for games.
“It’s something unbelievable, he gives you everything you need to know about the teams, where to make damage and exploit them.”
Many Tottenham fans have their doubts about what Mourinho can bring to the club, but he has proven himself to be a winner, so he will surely win something?
