Tottenham left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto has stated that new boss Andre Villas-Boas is like the 'son of Jose Mourinho', because of the similarities between the pair.
Villas-Boas followed in the footsteps of Mourinho by managing Porto, as well as leading the club to an incredible treble triumph.
And Assou-Ekotto insists that Villas-Boas is of a similar ilk to Mourinho and can help Spurs to win and enjoy their football.
"[Villas-Boas is] cool," Assou-Ekotto told Sky Sports.
"He has a different way to work, so we learn different things from him.
"He's like the son of [Jose] Mourinho because he used to work with him and he works in the same style. We do a little more tactics in training.
"If we work more about tactics we can win and we will enjoy [our football]."
Villas-Boas is yet to experience a competitive victory with Spurs, having lost the opening game of the Premier League season to Newcastle, before conceding a last-minute equaliser against West Brom on Saturday.
