Danny Rose: Jose Mourinho eyeing FA Cup trophy this season

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose believes Jose Mourinho has his heart set on winning the FA Cup this season.

Mourinho, a serial winner as a manager, will be keen to bolster the Spurs trophy cabinet during his first season with the North London club.

And Rose believes Mourinho will take Tuesday’s cup replay with Middlesbrough very seriously, after former manager Mauricio Pochettino often chose to rest players in the cup competitions.

Rose said: “Whoever we played, Mauricio wanted to win. Period. Whatever team he put out, he fully believed that team could win.

“It's no different with the manager now. It's obvious that he's a serial winner. Wherever he goes he wins trophies. That's a fact.

“Whatever team he puts out on Tuesday will be a team he fully expects to win and it's obvious that the FA Cup is something he has an eye on this season,” he added.
