“I want Tottenham to go to try to win, not just trying to win, but feeling like they can too.
“It is good to be nice lads, but it is good also to have that competitive mentality, that aggression and ambition that you need.

“But obviously a big evolution in terms of coaching, in terms of managing players and football teams, and the evolution of everything related to the game.

“I love everything related to my job. The only thing I dont enjoy is to lose -I hate to lose. But I know very well that it is part of our job.

the difficulties, are things I enjoy. So, the challenge is to be happy, happy, happy, happy!”
