New Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, has raised the hopes of club fans by insisting that it is possible to win the Premier League next season.

The Portuguese tactician, who was appointed in his new role on Wednesday, had his first press conference yesterday ahead of the game against West Ham this weekend.

Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino who was sacked by Spurs on Tuesday after a poor start this season, in the Premier League.

Facing the media for the first time as the North London club's coach, the self-acclaimed 'special one' was asked a number of questions as he outlined his plans for the team.

One of the questions that the 56-year-old was asked was about winning the Premier League title with Spurs. The former Manchester United and Chelsea manager has won league titles in four different countries and once again, that would be one of his targets with Spurs.

“We cannot win the Premier League this season," he answered when asked if he could repeat the feat which he achieved with Porto in his second season.

"We can – I’m not saying we will – we can win it next season.”

The Liliwhites are in the lower half of the Premier League table having won just three wins from their 12 games so far this season.

Mourinho, who will taste his first action in the dugout this weekend after an 11-month spell out, has promised not to make the same mistakes that clouded his time at Manchester United.

“I realised I made mistakes. I'm not going to make the same mistakes. I'll make new mistakes - but not the same,” he added.

"I am humble. Humble enough to try and analyse my career - not just the last year, but the whole thing, the evolution, the problems and the solutions. Not to blame anyone else.

"It was a great thing. I went really deep with that analysis. A break was very positive for me. It was the first summer I did not work and I felt a little bit at a loss during that pre-season.

"I was always humble, in my way. The problem is you didn't understand that."
