Jose Bosingwa has labeled Jose Mourinho as one of the best managers in the world while backing him to win trophies with Spurs.

Jose Mourinho took over at Tottenham last month after the departure of Mauricio Pochettino. Mourinho seems to have immediately set the Spurs’ sails right as the club have lost only once so far under him.

Former Chelsea player Jose Bosingwa is happy to see Mourinho back in the managerial role. The 37-year old feels Mourinho is an ideal manager for a team of Tottenham’s quality.

“I think football needs Mourinho. I’m happy he came back,” Bosingwa said as reported by Goal.

“I hope he will do a good job because he’s one of the best managers in the world, so for sure he will do a great job.”

“Tottenham have a good squad, maybe one of the best squads in the Premier League.

“It’s not easy [to win trophies] but I hope he does.”

Jose Bosingwa also spoke about Arsenal’s managerial issues. The former Porto player insisted that Nuno Espirito Santo deserved to be given a chance in a top Premier League team.

“I think he deserves [this], the next two or three years,” Bosingwa said.

“He’s doing very well with his team now, so he deserves [this]. Let’s see what will happen.”
