The Crystal Palace winger feels that Mourinho is the right man for the club, and Spurs would win trophies under him.
Mourinho, who is arguably one of the most successful managers in the world, has won titles in England, Italy, and Spain.
While Spurs can definitely win a cup competition under Mourinho, to win the Premier League they need more investment in the squad.
The former Chelsea boss said yesterday that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants success at the club. At the same time, he has insisted that the lack of Champions League football could have a big impact on transfer funds.
