Jermaine Jenas has paid tribute to Jose Mourinho’s influence as a manager in England which brought him great success at Chelsea.
The Portuguese proclaimed himself as the “Special One” on his arrival at Stamford Bridge 15 years ago where he won the Premier League and League Cup in his opening season.
Over his two spells with the Blues he added another two Premier League, an FA Cup and two more League Cups.
Jenas praised Mourinho’s tactical brilliant but highlighted his mind as being his strongest point to be able to make his players mentally believe that they are the best in the world.
The 37-year-old admits he now fears that Mourinho, who took over in North London at the end of November has stumbled into an era where he cannot impose those same things on this new generation of player.
Spurs head into today’s match against Burnley at Turf Moor having lost their last four matches in all competitions.
"My fear is he’s stumbled into an era where he cannot impose those same things on this new generation”
