Serge Aurier says Tottenham are determined to win trophies for manager Jose Mourinho
Aurier also hailed the Portuguese as being one of the top three managers in world football.
‘For me, yes, he is in the three best managers in the world because he has won so many trophies,’ Aurier told The Telegraph. ‘When you win so many trophies with different teams, I think you are the best.’
‘He (Mourinho) has won so many trophies and everyone wants to follow this way,’ said Aurier. ‘When the big manager comes in and you see his CV and it’s win, win, win, win, of course in the players’ minds something changes.
‘When he speaks, maybe it’s good or maybe it’s bad but you know he wins trophies and maybe, yes, it’s this way you need to follow.
Aurier was full of praise for Mourinho, saying he is one of the top three managers in the world
‘I think everyone knows what the gaffer wants and where we want to go. And maybe after this season we get a trophy, maybe the FA Cup and we also need to work hard to get to the top four.’
Aurier has featured prominently under Mourinho and will be eager to retain his place in the side.
Since replacing Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham boss in November, Mourinho has won seven of his 14 games in charge, drawing two and losing five.
The FA Cup represents a feasible target as Tottenham look to win a trophy – they will face Southampton away in the fourth round.
Mourinho’s side are also through to the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will take on RB Leipzig.
Finishing in the top four in the Premier League will be a difficult task, with Tottenham currently in eighth place, nine points adrift of Chelsea, who are fourth.
Tottenham are back in action on Saturday when they face Watford away.
