AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho has taken a brutal dig at Tottenham in a latest podcast.
Mourinho took over the club after Pochettino was fired in 2019 and spent two seasons managing 88 games with Tottenham.
He had a record of 44 wins, 19 draws, and 23 losses. The former manager also had a winning percentage of 51-percent during his tenure.
He also guided them to the League Cup final in 2021 but surprisingly the club fired the Portuguese manager just two days before they played Manchester City at Wembley.
While the sacking was inevitable, it was the timing that shocked everyone.
Sacking a a manager known for winning trophies just two days before a cup final was a crazy decision from Levy.
And now Mourinho has taken a dig at Spurs for letting him go just days before the Final.
Speaking on Mikel’s The Obi One Podcast on YouTube, the former Manchester United and Chelsea manager aimed a cheeky dig at his old club.
“The most ridiculous one was a club that has an empty trophy room sacks me two days before a final.”
“That was the one that was… come on!
“Tottenham have never won for 50 years. I don’t remember when.
“I am two days before a final and I couldn’t do the final. It’s the one which doesn’t smell well.”
It was no doubt a bizarre decision from Levy but that’s in the past now.
The club are now moving in the right direction with the appointment of Ange Postecoglou.
They made some brilliant signings in the summer who made instant impact helping them to a terrific start.
It is a long-term project but early signs show nothing but encouraging.
