Brendan Rodgers has insisted Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho is still ‘world-class’ in an interview on The Beautiful Game podcast.

“The older you get, the more experienced you get, and the better you become,” said Rodgers.

“He’s proven to be a world-class coach. But it will also be about the players you work with, you have to work with top-level players to win and win consistently.

“But there’s no doubt he’s a world-class coach. He’s proven that over time and I’m sure he’ll continue to do that over the course of his career,” Rodgers added.

Three-time Premier League winner, Mourinho has won a trophy at every club he has managed prior to his move to North London and Rodgers expects him to continue that record at Spurs.

When asked if he thinks Spurs will lift a trophy under Mourinho’s tenure, he replied: “Yeah, absolutely.”

The Portuguese manager has experienced a turbulent beginning to his time at Spurs. Victories early on against West Ham and progressing from the Champions League group stages offered optimism.

However, injuries have played a huge role in Tottenham’s downturn in form before the postponement of the league due to COVID-19.

However, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Steven Bergwijn have fully recovered from their respective injuries and are available for selection when the league returns later this month. (Transfermarkt)

For years we have been on the verge of lifting silverware, and Mourinho has been brought in to change that.
