In a recent revelation, renowned football manager Jose Mourinho has expressed his feelings about his past affiliations with various football clubs. Known for his stints with some of the most prestigious clubs in the world, Mourinho has always been vocal about his experiences. However, his recent comments about Tottenham have sparked a new discussion in the football world.
Mourinho, in an open conversation, stated that Tottenham is the only club with which he does not share a deep connection. This statement came as a response to a question about his bond with the fans of Roma, his current club. He said, “I hope the Tottenham fans don’t get me wrong, but the only club in my career where I don’t have still a deep feeling with is Tottenham.”
The reasons behind this lack of connection, as Mourinho explained, could be attributed to a couple of factors. One of them being the empty stadium during his tenure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The other reason he pointed out was the club’s owner, Daniel Levy, not allowing him to win a final and a trophy.
Mourinho’s statement was not just about Tottenham. He also mentioned his deep connection with other clubs he has managed in the past. He said, “After that, Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid, Manchester United, all the clubs, I feel connection.” He further added, “I love every club because I always felt the other way around, they also love me.”
His words reflect his passion for football and the clubs he has managed. He believes that his bond with Roma will also be strong, stating, “With Roma, one day it will be hard, but we will be connected forever like I am with all my previous clubs.”
However, he made an exception for Tottenham, referring to it as “Mr. Levy’s club.” This statement indicates his strained relationship with the club’s owner, which could be a significant reason for his lack of connection with Tottenham.
In conclusion, Mourinho’s candid revelation about his feelings towards Tottenham and other clubs he has managed provides a unique insight into his career. His deep connection with most clubs and the exception of Tottenham paints a vivid picture of his journey as a football manager. Despite the ups and downs, Mourinho’s love for football and the clubs he has managed remains undeterred, making him one of the most respected figures in the sport.
