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.
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.
