New Tottenham boss Jacques Santini has set his sights on a fast start to the new season after arriving at the club.
Santini was at White Hart Lane on Wednesday to outline his plans, saying: "We have confidence in the players.
"It is very important to begin the season with two or three good results. This is the first objective for the new season. I am ready for my new club.
"I am very happy. I have looked at the stadium and it's magnificent. I am looking forward to my first season."
Santini had earlier revealed he jumped at the Spurs offer and left his post as France coach because he feared there was a lack of confidence in him from the French football federation.
"I had an opportunity to move on to Tottenham and I had to make up my mind quickly so I decided to quit," said Santini.

"It's always been a dream and an ambition to coach in the Premiership, which is for me the best championship in Europe and I hope to have much success
"I'm not a fool. I know perfectly well that if some big names had been available in 2002 I would never have been named national coach."
He added: "I also knew some big names would be available after Euro 2004."
Santini saw his France side crash out of Euro 2004 in the quarter-finals to eventual winners Greece.
