Jose Mourinho is still bemused by Tottenham’s sacking as he sent a message to Daniel Levy in his recent interview with Sky Sports. Mourinho admitted that it “hurt” him when he got sacked from Tottenham Hotspur last year. The Portuguese oversaw the North London outfit from 2019 to 2021, before being replaced by fellow Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo last summer.

“I am in the maturity of my career and also my life where I don’t have bad feelings. I just try to accept things the way they are. Yes, it hurt. I don’t have regrets. I don’t have bad feelings. There are lots of nice people in Tottenham and I wish them the best. Even to Mr. Levy,” said Mourinho.

But for a guy with my career and my history, I think it was a strange thing to happen. But in the end, it opened the door for me to be in Rome and I’m very happy to be in Rome. Of course, I would love to be in a position of fighting to win titles or to be in the Champions League where I played 160 or 170 games there,” added the current Roma manager.

When in charge of Spurs, he was at the helm for 86 games, winning 45 of those and tasting defeat 24 times. But his firing may have come as a surprise for all those involved coming just days before their Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

“It’s a difficult moment”Jose Mourinho on Chelsea’s ongoing struggle amidst change of ownership

In the same interview when asked about Chelsea’s recent struggle, Mourinho believes that it is just a small bump and they will be back to their very best irrespective of who owns the club.

“It’s a difficult moment and you can even feel it at the football level because they have lost that level of excellence and stability. But this is at the moment, you know. If you ask me do I have someone I would like to take over my Chelsea? Then yes I have, but I close my mouth. I just know the club has reached such a level that it doesn’t matter who it’s with, Chelsea will always be Chelsea. Chelsea will always be,” stated Mourinho.

As of now, Jose Mourinho is in charge of Roma and is trying to secure the Europa League spot for his side. Roma is currently sixth on the Serie A points table, lagging three points behind Lazio.
