  • Jose Mourinho arrived at Tottenham in November but results haven’t been great
  • Mourinho was also spotted flouting government rules during lockdown last week
  • Despite tough start, defender Ben Davies says he has been a ‘dream’ manager
  • He says Mourinho has been brilliant for the club and everyone trusts him 

Tottenham defender Ben Davies has heaped praise on Jose Mourinho and says he is a ‘dream manager’ to work under.

Mourinho has had a tough time turning the club’s fortunes around since he arrived in November.

There are no questions over the Portuguese’s commitment to the job, though, as he was pictured flouting government rules last week when he held a one-on-one training session with Tanguy Ndombele.

Mourinho has also gone into lockdown with three of his coaching staff in a north London house.

Davies said of his manager on NBC: ‘I think he’s been great for the club, having someone of his stature and calibre coming to the club really gives everyone a lift.

‘To have someone like him believe that this club can win things then it’s a dream manager to have.

‘If he’s putting his trust in us then we can only give everything to him and put our trust in him.

‘Personally for me it’s been quite tough. I got injured in his first game. The next few weeks after that is when players look to make the best impression they can.

‘I can’t say a bad word about him though because throughout my time out injured he was in constant contact with me. He gave me so much support and made sure that when I came back I was right. For me he’s been brilliant.’

When football shut down, Spurs had been without a win in six games in all competitions, last tasting victory on February 16.

They have slipped to eighth in the Premier League table, seven points off the top four.
