Jose Mourinho aims dig at former clubs while speaking on Tottenham’s academy

Jose Mourinho has already taken a swipe at his former clubs regarding youth products.

The Portuguese became Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement after the Argentine was sacked.

Mou himself has been without a job since leaving Manchester United last year but seems ready to turn things around at Spurs.

The Portuguese doesn’t have a great track record of promoting youth players, however, he took a dig at his former clubs regarding this.

Tottenham have seen Harry Winks, Harry Kane and Kyle Walker-Peters come through the ranks, and Mourinho was open to handing young players chances.

The ‘Special One’ was speaking to the club’s channel and said (h/t Sun):

“There is not one manager in the world that doesn’t like to play young players and to help young players to develop – not one.”

Mourinho, however, claimed that his former clubs didn’t actually have a good system in place, unlike Tottenham:

“The problem is that sometimes you get into clubs where the work that is below you is not good enough to produce these players.

“So I look to our history and you see that the academy is always giving talents the first team need.

“Of course I always look forward to working with that profile.”

Spurs to make a winning start under Mou?

Our first game under Mourinho isn’t easy with trip to the London Stadium.

West Ham are also struggling under Manuel Pellegrini, and this could be a big match for both sides.

Tottenham need a win to get their season going, and we could put the West Ham manager under more pressure by beating them.
