Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta thinks Jose Mourinho will be successful at Spurs despite their “ups and downs” under his management.
Tottenham were held to a 0-0 draw on the road at Bournemouth on Thursday night with the point meaning they are now ninth in the Premier League table, three points off sixth-placed Wolves and a huge ten points adrift of Champions League qualification.
Their next match is against Arteta’s Arsenal side, who have been in good form in recent weeks, winning four of their last five matches in the Premier League and FA Cup.
And Arteta reckons Mourinho will eventually find a consistent winning formula at Spurs if the club continue to show faith in him.
Arteta said: “They have had some ups and downs but overall you can clearly see what he wants to bring to the club. He manages the energy, the momentum and establishes a really strong culture in every football club. As well, he makes sure that he wins and he’s won in every single club that he’s been at.
“Obviously the situation and the timing when he arrived is different than starting a new project right from the summer. But I’m sure he will be successful because he always finds the right way to do it. It will take him a bit of time but I’m sure he will do it.”
