Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has claimed that he is not loved by fans of the North London club.

Mourinho had signed a deal with Spurs until the end of the 2022/23 season replacing Mauricio Pochettino who spent five-and-a-half years at the club.

Pochettino led Spurs to top-four finishes in four of his five seasons in charge, as well as their first Champions League final in the 2018/19 campaign.

Mourinho has so far claimed six points from two Premier League fixtures and qualified the team for the next stage of the Champions League.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Mourinho said Tottenham fans don’t love him but accept him.

He, however, he is hoping a run of three successive wins to open his reign in North London, has him heading in the right direction.

“The fans love the club, I’m not saying they love me but they accept me as a top professional who wants to give everything for the club,” the Portuguese said.

“People have more reasons to love me if they like my work, but the fans are behind the team and the see us working hard to get to a position in the table that is more suitable to the talent of this squad.”
