Tottenham Hotspur suffered a difficult start to the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign having dropped to the unfamiliar position of fourteenth in the Premier League table.
The lowly league position along with suffering cup humiliation at both ends of the footballing spectrum from Bayern Munich and Colchester United also contributed to the departure of Mauricio Pochettino in November.
Less than 24 hours later, Jose Mourinho had been appointed as the Argentine’s successor but was unable to help the club secure a place in the top four and a fifth successive Champions League campaign.
There was also disappointment in the FA Cup prior to the coronavirus outbreak with a penalty shoot-out defeat to Norwich City.
Mourinho has now revealed that it is his dream to do something special with the North Londoners.
The Portuguese referenced Hugo Lloris, who has won the biggest prize in the game when he lifted the World Cup for France but has not won any domestic silverware at Tottenham.
He told The Sun: “Since I first arrived in England in 2004 my perception of Tottenham was always the same — a big club, a big fanbase and lots of good players.
“In my second spell in England we have seen the evolution of the club to have the best stadium in the world, the best facilities.
“I also feel the club have very good players, with a dream to win something.
“Some of them have won things at other clubs, Hugo Lloris got the biggest one when France won the World Cup. It’s a dream to do something special with the club.
“They almost did it in the Champions League final last year — but they didn’t. So now it’s the challenge to make something special.”
