Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho impressed by Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that he has been impressed by the longevity of Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth.

Ainsworth has been with Wycombe Wanderers for more than eight years now and is the second longest-serving manager in England currently. He did a sterling job to lead the Chairboys to a promotion to the EFL Championship against the odds last season.

And even though his team are struggling in the second division, Mourinho has hailed Ainsworth for the job he has done at the club.

“The coach is good. You only stay in the club for so long if you are good. You play in different divisions, you are promoted, you stay and fight in a difficult competition like they are now in the Championship.

“He knows what he wants. His team has a certain way to play. He knows clearly the way he wants to play. He knows clearly how to make the best out of his players so the coach is good.”

Apart from being the head coach, Ainsworth is also a lead singer in a rock band called Cold Blooded Hearts. Mourinho, while revealing his admiration for the Wycombe boss’ style, joked that he will not be joining Ainsworth on a duet.

“He looks to me a happy guy and if to be happy, part of his life is to play the rock, to sing, to be part of that beautiful world which is the music, he just has to do it. He has this long rock star hair, amazing. I’m really pleased he’s a good coach and a happy guy. I feel sorry I cannot sing with him because I will destroy his music!”
