Italian Serie A side AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe at his hometown club Tottenham and chairman Daniel Levy. Mourinho believes that Levy is the reason why Tottenham didn’t win the title. In the end, Spurs remain irrelevant.
Mourinho criticised Tottenham and Levy at a media event ahead of the Europa League final between AS Roma and Sevilla.
According to Italian media, Mourinho said that Tottenham is the only team he doesn’t have a relationship with.
Mourinho has managed several teams in Europe, including Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Tottenham. He’s won 26 titles. However, only Tottenham has failed to lift the trophy.
Mourinho won six trophies with FC Porto, eight with Chelsea, five with Inter Milan, three with Real Madrid, three with Manchester United and one with AS Roma.안전놀이터
Mourinho said: “I don’t want Tottenham fans to get the wrong idea. I don’t want Tottenham fans to misunderstand, because when I was manager of Tottenham, there were no crowds because of the COVID-19 pandemic.” Most of Mourinho’s games during his time at Tottenham have been played away from home.
Mourinho had a different story to tell. “A week before the Carabao Cup final, Tottenham president Daniel Levy sacked me, and that’s why we didn’t win it,” Mourinho said.
Mourinho was appointed manager of Tottenham in November 2019 and sacked on 19 April 2021. Mourinho was sacked just a week before the League Cup final against Manchester City. Mourinho had nothing but praise for Levy, who had a chance to win the title, but was forced to leave Tottenham without ever facing City.
Spurs have not reached a final in any competition since then. They have remained irrelevant ever since, and this irrelevance has led to the departure of their ace, Harry Kane.
Despite sacking Mourinho, Spurs lost the final 0-1 to Man City. The acting manager at the time was Ryan Mason, who is now in charge of Tottenham. Son was caught on camera breaking down in tears after the final defeat.
Meanwhile, Daniel Levy, who sacked Antonio Conte, is still undecided on his successor. A number of managers have been tipped for the job but have withdrawn themselves from consideration.
On the 25th, Feyenoord coach Arnar Slott withdrew his candidacy. He declared that he has no intention of leaving Feyenoord. Coincidentally, every managerial candidate Levy has met has withdrawn from the race. In the end, as Mourinho pointed out, Levy is at the heart of the problem.
