Tim Sherwood: Mourinho has brainwashed the Tottenham players

Published on: 24 November 2020

Former Tottenham Hotspur player and coach Tim Sherwood has lauded current Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, who has guided the north London club to top of the Premier League table.

The Englishman declared his love for the group of players that Mourinho has put together this season, while also pointing to the way in which the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son have stepped up.

"He's bought very well," Sherwood said on TalkSport Breakfast.

"[Sergio] Reguilon has been a good signing at left-back, but [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg for me has been the best signing. He fits into the style and just protects the two centre-halves.

"When we've got players like Son and Kane, who are world class and could probably play in any team in the world, you've always got a chance."

Sherwood also praised the work Mourinho has put in since his arrival last November.

"Jose has brainwashed his players to believe they have to work to achieve something - they need to win trophies, this group of players," Sherwood noted.

"And why wouldn't you believe in him? He's won 20 major trophies in his career and you're winning football matches, so then you start believing that this guy is the real deal, he knows what he's talking about, and why can't we win the league?"
