EPL: New Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho vows to bring success to Spurs

New Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has vowed to bring success to the struggling north London club, saying they could win the Premier League next season.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash against West Ham United, Mourinho told reporters that he wanted to bring stability to the team and would make few big changes.

Mourinho, who took charge of Spurs on Wednesday, has inherited a squad that finished in the Premier League's top four in four consecutive seasons, but are currently languishing in 14th after a poor start to the campaign.

Asked if he had a Christmas transfer market wish list, he declared himself happy with the squad but added that he would be making some tweaks to improve their performances.

"The best gift is the ones [players] that are here. I don't need players. I am happy with the ones that we have."

Mourinho returns to club management 11 months after being sacked by Manchester United.

"I'm not going to make the same mistakes. I'm going to make new mistakes. I'm going to be stronger," Mourinho added. 

"From an emotional point of view I'm relaxed, motivated and ready and I think the players felt that these two days. I'm ready, and I'm here to support them.

"In life, you go through periods like this, where it's not about myself, it's about my players and my club."

He also paid tribute to his predecessor Pochettino and backed the Argentine to find happiness at a different club.

Mourinho said the club's door will always be open for Pochettino, who guided Spurs to the Champions League final last season where they lost to Liverpool in Madrid.

"I have to congratulate him [Pochettino] on the incredible job he did.

"This club will always be his home, this training ground his training ground. He is always welcome here.

"Tomorrow is another day. He will find happiness soon. He will give everything like he did at this club. He will leave with sadness with the feeling that he did great work. It is what everyone at the club felt."

Mourinho will be looking to end Tottenham's run of 12 league away matches without victory when they visit 16th-placed West Ham, who are bidding for a first win in seven league matches.
