and his club invested profoundly during summer transfer window and expectations are high, yet Mourinho has declared that he confronted more weight during his time at Stamford Bridge. 

“What I felt is that when I was in these clubs, there was huge pressure on me and now there is not huge pressure on the coaches of these teams. Put a little bit of pressure on them and leave us in peace, doing our job.”

Even though he thinks he handled more pressure than ensuing coaches at Chelsea, Mourinho likewise said that Lampard is presently under more tension as the Blues manager than Mourinho is at Spurs. 

“When you are favourites, you know why you are favourites,” Mourinho said. “And you have to accept that and you have to deal with that kind of pressure and responsibility.

"I was at clubs which were, let’s say, champions in the market because of their powerful investments. I had to deal with that pressure. So now it’s not for me to deal with that pressure. It’s for others to deal with that pressure. That’s not for us.”

I am really happy with what we got.”
