Tottenham news: Spurs backed to beat Arsenal to Jose Mourinho – ‘He’s what Spurs need’ | Football | Sport

Jose Mourinho is just the type of manager Arsenal need – but north London rivals Tottenham need him more, claims talkSPORT presenter Adrian Durham.

Mourinho is reportedly keen on a return to the Premier League, 11 months after being sacked by Manchester United.

The Portuguese is said to be interested in replacing Unai Emery at Arsenal, with the Spaniard under pressure following a poor run of results.

But Tottenham have also had an indifferent start to their campaign and are in danger of missing out on the Premier League top four.

Durham believes Mourinho would help to change the mentality at Spurs, who have come close to winning major honours in the last few years but just fallen short on several occasions.

“You’re looking at Spurs and Arsenal and I think that for Arsenal, Jose Mourinho is exactly what Arsenal need.

“But I think it’s even more compelling that he’s what Spurs need.

“Could you imagine the conversation with [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy where Mourinho says ‘I want this player for £120m’ and Levy says ‘well you’ve got to get [Victor] Wanyama out, you’ve got to get [Harry] Winks out, you’ve got to do this and do that’.

“This is exactly why they need Jose Mourinho, because he would turn around to Levy and say ‘well I’m going, I’m not going to bother with that’, in fact, he probably wouldn’t sign in the first place because he wouldn’t put up with that.

“Jose Mourinho being appointed manager of Spurs would change the culture and the way they do things completely.

“He is exactly what they need because they are so starved of success.

“They have been feebly tapping at the door of the elite level for a little while under Pochettino, without any realistic notion of breaking through that door.

“Jose Mourinho would smash that door down.”
