Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho states that he is not envious of rival giants Manchester City and Liverpool. However, he has no complaints as such.
“Come on, it is what it is,” Mourinho said. “We cannot have a squad like some other teams. It’s not us.
“Yesterday, I was watching Man City and I looked to the bench – (Raheem) Sterling, Bernardo Silva, (Ilkay) Gundogan, (Nicolas) Otamendi. You know?
“Liverpool, you see the team, you see the bench. And they have injured (Joel) Matip, (Dejan) Lovren, (Naby) Keita, Fabinho.
“I’m not jealous, I have an amazing job, but they are different jobs. This is a different club.”
“It is the second time I get a team mid-season, just the second time,” Mourinho said.
“The first time was also not easy because it was the end of a team, the end of an era. It was an era without titles.
Mourinho, FC Porto’s former boss, had led the club to victory – and he recalls that memory.
“Porto was not winning but it was the end of… I don’t want to say of a generation but it was the end of a team in the end of a season.
“Twelve players out, twelve players in, start everything from the beginning. Forget the good things of the past, forget the bad things of the past and let’s build from new.
“That is my experience in Porto coming in the middle of the season.”
