Tottenham Hotspur have not won a trophy in over 12 years, dating back to their 2008 Carling Cup win over Chelsea.

Despite Mauricio Pochettino coming close to a League Cup, Champions League, and a couple of Premier League titles, his five-and-a-half-year spell in North London ended without silverware.

When sacking the Argentine back in November 2019, Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board decided to bring in a serial winner in the form of Jose Mourinho.

The Special One had won major honours literally everywhere he had been in his managerial career, including Porto, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Manchester United.

This season, Spurs are still fighting on four fronts, currently topping the Premier League table, through to the Europa League knockout stages, and in a League Cup quarter-final.

When asked whether this was the year that Jose Mourinho wins a trophy with Tottenham, the head coach remained coy, claiming that Spurs would be taking it game by game all season.

He said (Football London): “It is not about feelings. As I say every week we focus on the next match, if the next match is Europa League, Europa League is important, if the next match is cup, the cup is important, if the next match is Premier League, the Premier League is important.

“We play every match to win, sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t do it. But the intention is always to be positive.

“Today we got an objective which is not a fundamental objective because the difference between finishing first and second in the draw is not a massive difference but it maybe helps and we did our job by winning the match.”
