Mauricio Pochettino: 'Jose Mourinho is one of world's best'

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says that he is an admirer of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, after facing him in Sunday's League Cup final.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has stated that he is an admirer of Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho.

The two men went head to head in Sunday's League Cup final at Wembley, where Chelsea triumphed 2-0 to lift the first major trophy of the season.

Pochettino says that it was a privilege to go up against the Portuguese coach.

"I admire Mourinho," he told The Express. "For me, he is the best or one of the best managers in the world.

"It was an honour to play against him, a dream for me. When I was a player I played against him and now to go face to face in a final at Wembley is a dream.

"I have full respect for him. I'm lucky that he thinks the same about me."

Tottenham host Swansea City on Wednesday.
