Cape Town - Eric Dier says Tottenham's players are "very
lucky" to have worked under Mauricio Pochettino and now Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho, 56, is now in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium hotseat
after replacing the Argentine tactician, who was sacked last week after five
years at the helm.
Whether or not the Portuguese had much of an impact at the
weekend is open to debate as Spurs beat a lacklustre West Ham United 3-2 at the
Next up for the north Londoners is the visit of Greek giants
Olympiakos in the Champions League on Tuesday night for what will be the new
boss' first home game in charge.
They have made a decent start to Europe's elite club
competition, with seven points from four games played seeing them sit second in
Group B - despite a 7-2 mauling at home to Bayern Munich on matchday two.
Dier, who is likely to feature against Olympiakos, has
hailed the arrival of Mourinho and believes having someone with his presence in
the dressing room can only auger well for the future of the club.
"His record is unbelievable, and he transmits that confidence,"
said the England midfielder. "The way he speaks, you believe it, you feel
it from him.
"I think for everyone, we're very lucky to have played
under Pochettino and now Mourinho. We couldn't be luckier."
Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy Spurs to rally
under the new man and finish in the top six. Their next top-flight action comes
at home against Bournemouth on Saturday.
