- The club now have the chance to win their first piece of silverware since 2008
- Moussa Sissoko said Spurs can get over the line in finals under Jose Mourinho
Moussa Sissoko says Jose Mourinho is turning Tottenham into winners.
Spurs are within touching distance of their first trophy since 2008 after reaching the Carabao Cup final following their 2-0 semi-final win over Brentford on Tuesday night.
The north Londoners had a few near misses in their attempts to end that log drought under previous manager Mauricio Pochettino, ending as runners-up in the League Cup and Champions League final and also going close in the Premier League title race twice.

Sissoko said Jose Mourinho has transformed Spurs into a team capable of winning trophies
But Sissoko believes serial winner Mourinho is helping transform Spurs into a team that can now get over the line.
‘Yeah, we can say that [he is making us winners],’ said Sissoko, scorer of Spurs’ first goal in their semi-final win over Brentford.
‘Because we know what type of manager Jose is and what he did in the past, I think the chairman brought him here to win trophies and he’s tried to bring that mentality to the team.
‘I will not say we didn’t have it before with the old manager but the team is working a lot on it and he pushes hard every day on it.
‘Now it’s good that we reach the final, now we have to win it.’

Spurs have come close to winning trophies in the past, losing 2019’s Champions League final
Spurs will face either Manchester United or Manchester City in the final on April 25.
Sissoko added: ‘Yes, it’s time to win a trophy. I think for many years we missed that kind of opportunity and now we want to take it.
‘We have qualified for one final, I hope we are going to win it, there’s still plenty of games before that final and I hope we can still do a lot of things.
‘We are still in the race for the league, we’ve got the other cup to play, the Europa League as well and so there’s plenty of things to do with the team this season.
‘Let’s believe in ourselves, let’s keep fighting and let’s try to win every game and see what we can do.’
But Sissoko believes this Spurs team being led by Mourinho can end their trophy drought
