Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric believes Jose Mourinho will end their 13-year wait for a trophy.
The Portuguese coach took over from Mauricio Pochettino last term and steered Spurs to a top-six finish which saw them qualify for this season's Europa League.
Ex Balon d'Or winner Modric left North London to move to Mourinho's Madrid in 2013 and he believes his former boss can instil a winning mentality at Tottenham.
“Yes, definitely," the Croatian told The Times when asked whether Jose can deliver silverware with Spurs.
“I have a special affection for him, for everything he meant for me. Tottenham did a great thing to appoint him as a manager because he is a proven winner.
“In Italy, England and Spain he won things and he knows how to win. I am hoping he manages to do the same thing with Spurs.
“It’s a great thing for Tottenham to be able to bring in someone like him.
“He wins everywhere. Even when people say, ‘Ah, he didn’t win in Manchester’. He won the Europa League and other cups because of his quality.
“He knows how to transport his energy to the players. If I had to say one thing it is how he prepares for games.
“It’s something unbelievable, he gives you everything you need to know about the teams, where to make damage and exploit them.”
