Mourinho believes Tottenham could be champions ‘in many European countries’

Tottenham see off West Brom

Spurs travelled to West Brom on Sunday for the day’s early Premier League kick-off.

The north Londoners headed into the tie in fine form, having not lost a league outing since the opening weekend of the season.

West Brom, on the other hand, have had a nightmare start to life back in the English top-flight.

The Baggies kicked off against Spurs having failed to notch a single win in their previous seven league attempts.

As such, it came as little surprise when it was the visitors who emerged from the Hawthorns with all three points, courtesy of a late Harry Kane header:

Tottenham could be champions elsewhere in Europe

Yesterday’s result means that the Lilywhites head into the international break very much in the Premier League title picture.

Tottenham are just one point off table-topping Leicester, and above 3rd-placed Liverpool on goal difference.

However, speaking post-West Brom, Jose Mourinho was seemingly keen to temper expectations regarding the possibility of a prolonged title challenge from his side.

The Portuguese tactician first revealed his opinion that Spurs could be champions in many European countries.

However, he went on to add that the Premier League is the most difficult league to win, before listing off all of the top competition his side faces in their quest for glory:

“I would say that this team could be champion in many European countries.

“The Premier League is the most difficult one to be, because in the Premier League you can do a good season, can have lots of points, but in the end…Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Man United, Leicester, Arsenal.

“So you can have a good season and not be champion. So what can we do? We go match after match. We try to win, we don’t care about the others.”
