“I hope my words aren’t misinterpreted, but the only club in my career that I haven’t had too much affection for is Tottenham,” Mourinho told Goal. with the time when the stadium was empty because of the Covid-19 epidemic and President Daniel Levy did not give me much support.”
“With other clubs we have always had a strong relationship, not just by winning or losing. The fans understand that I fight for them every day. I will forever be with Roma and the clubs. that I used to lead in my career,” the former MU coach emphasized.
The Portuguese strategist spent 17 months working with Tottenham, but most of the time was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Mourinho doesn’t have much fun managing Spurs.
The biggest mark of the “Special One” is to bring the “Rooster” to the final of the League Cup in 2021. However, Tottenham shocked when they fired Mourinho right before the decisive match. As a result, the London team continued to be empty-handed from 2008 until now.
In contrast, Mourinho proved his worth after leaving Spurs. He helped AS Roma reach the second European Cup final in two years. After helping Roma win the first continental championship in history last season (Europa Conference League), “Special One” continued to lead the capital team to the Europa League final.
In its 95-year history, no manager has led Roma to more European Cup finals than Mourinho. Before Mourinho joined the team in the summer of 2021, Roma had only twice reached the European Cup final (European Cup 1983/84, UEFA Cup 1990/91) and both failed.
With Tottenham, they continue to sink in disappointment. This season, they are in danger of not having a place in the European Cup. Coach Antonio Conte criticized the team in March: “Tottenham is an unprofessional team. They have no goals to play. That’s why for the past 20 years, this club has not won a title.”
