The Portuguese manager’s time at Spurs came to an abrupt ending – six days prior to the Football League Cup final.

Jose Mourinho has broken his silence after his Tottenham sacking on Monday morning.

Mourinho was handed a four-year contract upon his arrival at Tottenham in November 2019.

Spurs had just dismissed Mauricio Pochettino then after his failure to end their long trophy drought and saw ‘the special one’ as the right man to usher in a new era at the club.

The 58-year-old has enjoyed immense success throughout his career with several top sides but his time in north London turned out to be not something to boast about.

Tottenham are still in contention for achieving Champions League qualification, but only just as they currently sit seventh in the Premier League standings, five points behind fourth-placed West Ham with only six games left to play.

“They don’t give me privacy, even my friend Gary (Cotterill) is disturbing me. That’s my life,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“You know me. You know me. I’m not going to say anything,” he replied when asked if he feels having been treated unfairly by Tottenham.

Asked if he is planning to take a holiday, the Portuguese responded: “No need for breaks or recharged batteries. I’m always in football.”
