Jose Mourinho has revealed that Tottenham will never reach the levels he wants them to reach under his management.
However, while on the surface this sounds like an insult or a defeatest statement, Mourinho was actually explaining the footballing pursuit of perfection.
The Special One claimed that, as a coach, you always want to look for the impossible and to keep getting better and better over time.
He even used upcoming opponents, Manchester City, as an example, stating that they would have been searching for improvements even after winning so many Premier League titles.
Spurs have made an excellent start to the season and are currently second in the Premier League with the chance to go top with a win over Man City tomorrow.
Despite this, Mourinho did hint that there was work to be done for Tottenham this season before they could even think about the word perfection.
The head coach said (Football London): “I think clubs never reach what they want. Us coaches, we are always in the search of the impossible, we are always in the search for perfection and in my case, we are far from perfection. For example, our opponents tomorrow they are winning the Premier League or almost winning the Premier League or fighting for the Premier League for more than 10 years and probably they didn’t reach the perfection and want more.”
