Jose Mourinho has admitted that he did not enjoy filming Amazon’s ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ as he would prefer things that go on inside the club to remain private.
The first six episodes of Amazon’s fly on the wall documentary of Tottenham’s 2019/20 are now out with the final three episodes set to be released next Monday.
The series has given fans a glimpse of some of the fascinating things that went on behind the scenes during what was a tumultuous season at the club last year.
Mourinho admitted that he did not enjoy filming the series back as he prefers to work in privacy but insisted that fans will enjoy it since it paints a very real picture of what goes on at a football club.
When asked about ‘All or Nothing’, the Spurs boss said in an interview with JOE: “Well, It’s real. Nothing is fake. I think we all forgot very very fast that the cameras were everywhere and we just lived our day by day with the ups and downs that the club and ourselves were having during the season. So I think it is very very real.
“If you ask me if I enjoyed it.. No, I don’t because I prefer privacy and I prefer, obviously, that our house is closed to people who don’t belong to our house.
“But I imagine that for people that love football and sport, it is very exciting because it’ll give you the reality of football club life.”
There have been suggestions that some scenes, like the one in which Mourinho is seen swearing at the television before turning it off, were faked. However, the 57-year-old insisted that nothing was put on for the cameras as most of them were hidden.
He added: “You know, the majority of the cameras are hidden – everything that is in the training ground, everything in offices, in medical rooms, in meeting rooms.
“The only moments where we can see the cameras is when we travel, when we go to away matches, in the away dressing rooms.
“But even then, we have no time during competition to be thinking about it”.
Spurs Web Opinion
Some people have suggested that Mourinho was more than happy to play up to the cameras and have this series come out since it is good for his brand. However, the Spurs boss has been clear from day one about not enjoying having the Amazon cameras in his office or in the dressing room. Given that he took over mid-season when the deal was already agreed, he had no say in the matter. However, Amazon will certainly be counting their lucky stars that Spurs brought Jose in to replace Pochettino as the Portuguese coach carries this documentary on his own.
