Jose Mourinho critical of decision to overturn Man City ban

Leaked footage of a new fly-on-the-wall documentary about Tottenham Hotspur appears to show Jose Mourinho demanding his team play like “bastards” and “intelligent c***s”.

Speaking in a team meeting, Mourinho can be seen praising his players for being “a very nice group of guys”, before adding: “But for 90 minutes, you cannot be nice.”

He goes on: “For 90 minutes you have to be a bunch of c***s. Intelligent c***s. Not stupid c***s. Bastards in the sense that you are there to win matches.”

The clip, which surfaced on social media, appears to be from the new Amazon Prime Video documentary All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, which chronicles Spurs’ 2019-20 season.

The documentary makers picked a good season for drama, which started with the sacking of the much-loved Mauricio Pochettino before he was replaced by Mourinho.

Mourinho recently spoke about the documentary, saying he would not be watching it when it airs.

“I don’t like the feeling of being in Big Brother. I tried to forget them the majority of the time. I have no idea what is there, I have no concerns. Nothing is fake, everything is real.

“I think for them it must be great for them because they have day by day, 24 hours of what football club and dressing room is. They have everything. So, so, so, so real, nobody acted for it. It is just the way it is. Am I going to watch it? No. No I’m not.

“It is not something I want to, also because I know better than anyone what our day by day is here but I think it will be very, very interesting for the people who love football and love sport. I think it will be really great for them.”
