Amazon Prime’s latest ‘All or Nothing’ docu-series featuring Tottenham Hotspur released its first three episodes online last night.

One interesting conversation that the cameras picked up was one between Daniel Levy, Jose Mourinho, and one of the Spurs media officers.

In this chat, the media officer warns Mourinho that journalists would likely focus on his Chelsea links in his first press conference, asking why the manager chose to join a rival.

Mourinho managed 185 games for Chelsea between 2004 and 2007, including 124 wins. He then returned for a second stint in 2013, managing 136 more fixtures for the club (Wikipedia).

Across his five years in charge of the Blues, Mourinho picked up three Premier League titles, an FA Cup, three League Cups, and a Community Shield.

In November 2019, Mourinho returned to the Premier League at the helm of Chelsea’s bitter London rivals, Tottenham, much to the distaste of many Blues fans.

However, Mourinho believes that it was actually Chelsea that betrayed him (All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur – Episode 2 – 1 min).

The media officer says to Mourinho: “The reaction of Spurs fans to having a Chelsea legend here, but it’s the second point of how do you think Chelsea fans will react to you… and some of them will feel that it’s a bit of a betrayal.”

Mourinho replied: “The betrayal is that I won three leagues for them and they sacked me.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Not really a betrayal when you consider what a toxic environment he managed to create in his wake. Winning leagues is the expectation of a top manager. However, fulfilling your expectations does not give you the privilege of acting with total impunity. The sacking came on the back of terrible results, and total fallout with staff, players, fans, and probably owner. Hopefully, he won’t conduct himself so poorly at his new club. But patterns… I have no expectations other than the ones that are based on experience.
