Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho fought back the tears in an interview with Amazon Prime.

Mourinho was speaking to the broadcaster ahead of the Boxing Day clash against Brighton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He was asked by interview Jim Rosenthal (26/12/2019 at 11:43) about how his Christmas had been and the Portuguese emotionally revealed that his family dog had sadly passed away on Christmas Day.

Mourinho, who was also joined by club legend Glenn Hoddle, who was performing punditry duties helped to change the topic of the tragedy back onto football to help Mourinho gather his composure.

He will be looking for his Spurs players to try and restore some festive cheer with all three points against the Seagulls in the Premier League.


It was moving to see Mourinho so emotional about his loss, especially with the game soon on the hotizon.

Our thoughts are with the Mourinho family.
