Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Jose Mourinho, has now been in charge of the club for over a month in North London, and what a busy month it has been.

The Special One has already guided his side to qualification for the knockout rounds of the Champions League, as well as closing the gap on fourth place from 12 points to just three.

However, the new manager has also already lost to both his two former Premier League clubs after defeats against Man United away and Chelsea at home.

Mourinho took over from Mauricio Pochettinoin November after the Argentine was sacked by Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board, largely down to the poor start to the new season.

One criticism that could be thrown at Poch was also his failure to win a single trophy in five and a half years, something that Mourinho has always been pretty good at.

It seems that after nearly a year away from management, Jose is now living and breathing Tottenham Hotspur, as shown by his interview with Sky Sports.

He said: “It’s what I am now, and how I feel now. Happy to come every day, happy to be here since 7.30am until 6.30pm. Happy to sleep here after matches, be here with my staff analysing matches and preparing for the next one.

“Happy to be on the pitch and coach the players. Happy to work in the office and analyse everything. Happy to go to every match. That’s the happiness of the day-by-day which helps you give the best. That’s the way I feel now. I’m happy.

“I am in the state of mind, of soul, of happiness, where I am ready to go all in, which is 100 per cent commitment. It is only possible when you are happy with yourself, when you are happy with what surrounds you. I am happy, I give my 100 per cent, I give everything I can.

“When you are happy, you are able to give your 101 per cent. I always say that in relation to commitment, there is only one state, and that’s all-in, 99 per cent is not enough. Not enough. 99 per cent is not enough!”
