Mourinho: Spurs 'better contenders' than before

And when I analyse Tottenham as an opponent. I think they have a much better, a much better squad now than they have the season before.

And nobody can criticise me for that opinion, it is consequence of my professional analysis and I think they have a much better squad.

And because you win titles with squads, you don't win titles with a specially good player, I think they are much more contenders than before.

Mourinho 'unimpressed' over friendship revelation

On the eve of their first clash as coaches Jose Mourinho said he wasn't impressed with Andre Villas-Boas revealing details about their friendship.

I don't describe (the relationship), because I'm not a kid to discuss relationships with the media.

It's a personal thing. I don't care what he says. I'm not here to comment on what he says. I'm not interested.

They are a big contender.

They were the champions of the (transfer) market, they bought a lot of players and all of them international players, players with quality. The squad is very, very good.
