“I am a victim”: Mourinho hits out at Tottenham for sacking before EFL Cup final

Jose Mourinho hits out at Tottenham during AS Roma unveiling

Speaking during his unveiling as the new manager of AS Roma (h/t Express), Jose Mourinho lashed out at Tottenham Hotspur over his sacking right before the team was to play a cup final.

Mourinho spent close to eighteen months as the manager of Tottenham. After having brought in to replace Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019, the Portuguese was shown the doors in April earlier this year following a disappointing run of results.

Mourinho’s sacking came just a week away from Tottenham’s biggest game of the season. The North Londoners were set to play Manchester City in the finals of the Carabao Cup, but chairman Daniel Levy deemed the time was right to axe Jose just a week before that, placing former midfielder Ryan Mason as interim boss.

“I am a victim of how people look at me. At Manchester, three titles, and it was a disaster. At Tottenham, they didn’t keep me for the final and, for me, a disaster. What is a disaster for me is a success for others.

“The criticisms? I have nothing to answer. My last three clubs. Scudetto with Chelsea, three cups with United, a final with Tottenham. What for me is a disaster someone has never done in their life. That’s how it is. It’s my fault.”
