Jose Mourinho relishing first full Spurs season

Jose Mourinho relishing first full Spurs season

I can not change myself. And I don't see how he improved her at all.

But speaking on Sky Sports, the former Man United boss divulged he slept off while getting a new hair cut only to wake up to a glaring blunder by the barber and now hopes his hair will grow again.

Mourinho takes his Spurs team to Aston Villa on Sunday, following a winter break in the Premier League.

Mourinho was quickly named Mauricio Pochettino's successor in November, just 12 hours after the Argentine was released in north London after nearly six years.

He found far more favour during the Argentine's reign, but the club's poor on-field performances brought an untimely end to the Pochettino era.

He has led his team to ten wins in 19 games and reduced the gap to fourth place in Chelsea to just four points.

The full-back explained that he has struggled to regain the form he showed prior to a knee injury in January 2017 that required surgery and left him sidelined for nine months.

While the report claims that there was a "certain degree" of negativity over the Englishman signing a new deal when discussions first began towards the end of past year, his fine performances for the first team have resulted in Spurs "accelerating talks".

"They lost the captain Hugo Lloris for a long period". You're aware of the consequences if you lose a game or don't play well. Then another one. Then another one. I like very much the relationship I have with them. People like Son [Heung-min] and Lucas [Moura] going to their limits and giving absolutely everything.

Spurs have a recent track record of trying to tie down their best players to long-term deals as Daniel Levy looks to avoid situations where stars are in the last 18 months of their contract.

"The spirit is incredible".
