The Portuguese has enjoyed a perfect start to his reign at Tottenham and says he will do all he can to earn the affection of his new supporters.
Jose Mourinho says Tottenham supporters do not love him yet, but he hopes a run of three successive wins to open his reign in north London has him heading in the right direction.
Spurs turned to the Portuguese after taking the decision to move on from Mauricio Pochettino after five-and-a-half years.
Mourinho’s glittering CV attracted him to Tottenham, with a side longing for tangible success turning to a proven winner for inspiration.
An immediate impact has been made by the new boss, with six points claimed from two Premier League games and a come-from-behind success enjoyed over Olympiacos in the Champions League.
Spurs’ latest triumph saw them survive a fightback from Bournemouth to prevail 3-2 on home soil, with Mourinho stating afterwards that he hopes to earn the affection of the club’s loyal fan base.
He told BBC Sport: “The fans love the club, I’m not saying they love me but they accept me as a top professional who wants to give everything for the club.
“People have more reasons to love me if they like my work, but the fans are behind the team and the see us working hard to get to a position in the table that is more suitable to the talent of this squad.”
Spurs, who slumped to 14th under Pochettino, have clambered back into fifth spot in the Premier League table.
