Teddy Sheringham believes Mourinho’s brand of football may not be ‘exciting’ but it gives promising results.

According to the former Tottenham striker,

Jose Mourinho

isn’t ‘boring the arse off people.’ However, he considers him to be grinding out results the way George Graham’s Arsenal did.

Although his tactics and deliverance aren’t satisfying to watch sometimes, their effectiveness is followed by a haul of honors gathered at





Real Madrid

, and

Manchester United


The most decorated manager is tasked with bringing a championship to


at the moment. The Spurs are titleholders on the

Premier League

table. With Tottenham ready to win the title,


is keen to bring attention to how their method can be compared with that of George Graham’s.

When asked about how Mourinho is doing, Sheringham responded: “

You’ve caught me at a good time, haven’t you, asking me how has Jose done. Top of the league. What more can you say? 

“I wouldn’t say it’s the most exciting football you’ve ever watched but he’s been doing it for years. You only have to look back in my time and Arsenal with George Graham.  They weren’t fantastic at football, but they used to grind out their 1-0 wins and bore the arse off of people.

“I wouldn’t say Tottenham are boring the arse off people at the moment, but they’re certainly playing in a certain manner and everything’s fitting into plans at the moment for Jose

Teams are coming on to Tottenham and they’re hitting them on the break and they’re scoring goals at the moment. So, from my point of view, long may that continue and I’m sure everyone’s happy inside the Tottenham camp.”

The former Spurs striker also commented on whether Tottenham can win the title: “I

t’s very early in the season to be talking about Tottenham as title contenders. 

“When you’re at places like Manchester United, you don’t even think about the title until the end of February. And here we are in December, you know, very, very early days, but it’s a fantastic start and we’ll see where that takes them.

“The money people at Tottenham would say getting into the Champions League is the priority this season but for the Tottenham supporters, it’s all about winning trophies. You’ve got to start winning something now – eventually. 

“I sat with three Gooners in our little camp the other day, watching the Arsenal vs Tottenham game, and all they could say was, ‘Yeah, they’re doing alright at the moment, but where’s their silverware?’ That’s all they kept saying. I understand that.

“Arsenal have picked up their FA Cups over the last five or six, seven years, which is amazing, the way I see it. They keep winning trophies and it’s what Tottenham need to do


Tottenham will clash with

Crystal Palace
