Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Tottenham Hotspur 'can win the title'
1:01pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Spurs
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is tipping his former protege Andre Villas-Boas to challenge for the Premier League title with Spurs this season.
Villas-Boas served as Mourinho’s assistant at both Porto and Chelsea before following in his countryman’s footsteps by winning the Portuguese league with Porto before heading to Stamford Bridge for a stormy nine months with the west London club.
Despite the potentially impending £93m departure of Gareth Bale, Mourinho believes that Tottenham have been able to add sufficient quality to their squad to mount a serious title challenge this season.
“They can win the title,” stated Mourinho. "They’re one of the best teams. Andre Villas-Boas knows the market very well and has employed a new technical director who also knows the market very well.”
Spurs have been active in the transfer market with Nacer Chadli, Paulinho and Etienne Capoue already signed and the signings of Willian and Erik Lamela expected in the near future.
Mourinho continued: “He has the money and ambition to form a fantastic squad.”
