Dele Alli says that Tottenham Hotspur's players are hungry to win trophies under Jose Mourinho, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino as manager on Wednesday.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has said that the club's players are hungry to win trophies under new manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was appointed Spurs boss on Wednesday on a three-and-a-half year deal, replacing Mauricio Pochettino, who had been with the North London club since 2014.

In an interview with talkSPORT, Alli praised his former manager and said that his initial impressions of former Chelsea boss Mourinho had been largely positive.

The England international said: "We've had a few conversations, he seems very nice.

"You can see his desire, which is something our old gaffer had as well. It's still very early doors but we're excited for the new challenge and personally I'm very excited for the new challenge as well."

"As players, we're hungry. We've always been hungry. We've always wanted to win, that's where our mentality is.

"With a new manager coming in now, our hunger is still the same. We still want to achieve the same things, it's just with a different manager."

The 23-year-old has not consistently been at his best for Spurs this season, scoring two goals in 10 appearances in all competitions.
