Moussa Sissoko believes that the Tottenham stars need to put their full trust in Jose Mourinho and is confident that the Portuguese coach will guide the club to silverware.

It has been almost thirteen years since Tottenham got their hands on a major trophy and that is certainly something the North Londoners will be hoping to put right this season, having already sealed a place in the Carabao Cup final.

Tottenham, who start their FA Cup campaign tomorrow afternoon with a third-round clash against Marine, are still competing on all four fronts and Sissoko has admitted that the players take confidence from Mourinho’s experience of winning the biggest trophies in the game.

The Frenchman told Football.London: “He [Mourinho] gives us that belief, we just need to trust him because he won many titles in every team where he’s been.

“He knows how to win. We just need to believe in what he says, give our best on the pitch, to fight and if we do it then we are going to be close to doing something good.”

This is now Sissoko’s fifth season at Tottenham and although the North Londoners have threatened to win the Premier League and the Champions League during his time at the club, the midfielder and his teammates still have nothing to show for their efforts.

The 31-year-old revealed that the players are determined to get over the line this season but admitted that there was still a long way to go in the campaign.

He added: “It is so important [to get that first trophy]. This club deserves it first of all, this club has been waiting for a trophy for many years and, like I said before, we’ve been close to winning something for many years in the past but we didn’t for different reasons.

“This season we can still win something. We have a good squad, a strong squad with a lot of quality and we just need to believe in ourselves.

“Let’s fight until the end and hopefully we can bring one or even more trophies.

“It can be an exciting season but we need to keep fighting like we have since the beginning of the season.

“We had two games where we were struggling a little bit against Leicester and even Palace but the season is still long, there’s still plenty of things to do.

“Let’s believe, let’s fight and let’s try to win a lot of games and hopefully, at the end of the season, we can all be happy.”

Getting over the line and winning our first piece of silverware in 13 years (even if it is just the Carabao Cup) would come as a huge boost for the players’ morale and will likely give them the confidence to go after bigger honours this season.
