Mourinho admits saying he’d never manage Spurs but jokes it was before the sack

first_imgJOSE MOURINHO admits he once said he could never manage Tottenham – but all that changed when Chelsea sacked him.Four years ago, when he was in charge at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho said there was no way he would take control of Spurs because the Blues fans meant too much to him.2 Jose Mourinho joked that being sacked by Chelsea ended his vow that he could never manager TottenhamBut after succeeding Mauricio Pochettino in charge in North London, the 56-year-old says the way the game has changed for managers it is now impossible to rule out any club.Asked about his quote in 2015, Mourinho said: “Yes, that was before I was sacked.”This is modern football. In relation to players, the Bosman law changed everything. In relation to us coaches, because of you [the media] we lost that stability.“The relationships are fast. Players can get tired of each other, they can get tired of the manager. Everything is faster.“When I went to Manchester United with a free mind, with a free heart. Manchester United occupied my heart even with things I did not enjoy too much.“But I loved so many things there, the fans, the people that worked at the club.2″But now it is about Spurs and I just hope I can be really, really happy here and make people happy and try and make sure there is not a bigger fan than myself.“If there is one person in the world who wants Spurs to win and be successful – there is not one person that wants it more than me, maybe the same but not more.”Chelsea is the past. A great past, two periods of titles, a great past, but it is the past.”Mourinho was also asked whether he felt the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool last season had played a part in the poor form of Spurs during the current campaign.He added: “I don’t know because I never lost a Champions League final but I can imagine it is not easy.

Four NRL stars in doubt after Origin I

first_imgPhoto: NRL Photos.Broncos five-eighth Anthony Milford. Credit: Nathan Hopkins. NSW’s Mitchell Pearce and Queensland duo Anthony Milford and Justin O’Neill and are all considered extremely unlikely to play due to concussions, while Blues hooker Nathan Peats is struggling to overcome a cork.Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy has also indicated Cameron Smith could be rested for Friday night’s clash with Newcastle.The injuries mean the Sydney Roosters and Brisbane will be robbed of their most-attacking halves in Pearce and Milford for Saturday night’s blockbuster at Allianz Stadium.Broncos coach Wayne Bennett will also monitor the workloads of his club’s veteran forwards at training on Friday before making a call on whether to make Josh McGuire, Matt Gillett and Sam Thaiday available for the game.The Roosters also had their players undergo a medical on Thursday afternoon, with prop Dylan Napa carrying a leg injury.It’s understood Pearce is keen to play, but will have to pass significant testing to be declared fit after being knocked out by a Will Chambers high shot in NSW’s 28-4 win.Meanwhile, North Queensland centre O’Neill is understood to be suffering the after effects of being hurt in a Jarryd Hayne tackle late in the game.He went off for a head injury assessment and is a near certainty to miss the Cowboys’ game against the Gold Coast.Peats is doing all he can to play in that fixture for the Titans after suffering a severe leg cork, but is also considered highly unlikely to play.Elsewhere, Canterbury are confident all three of their Origin players will be fit to take on Penrith on Sunday, while St George Illawarra and Wests Tigers have no concerns over their representative duos before Saturday’s clash.Manly will wait until Saturday before they know whether Nate Myles will recover from an elbow injury to face Canberra, while both Jake Trbojevic and the Raiders’ Josh Papalii are certain to play on Sunday.The Warriors have confirmed Jacob Lillyman has no concerns to take on Parramatta at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.last_img read more
