The Telegraph have claimed that Jose Mourinho held a four-hour meeting with the Tottenham squad after his sacking on Monday morning and told some home truths to the players.
On a few occasions over the last few months, Mourinho has insinuated that the players are not good enough to get consistent results.
Reports had indicated that some players were ‘fed up’ with the Portuguese coach for questioning their quality.
If The Telegraph is to be believed, the former Tottenham boss certainly did not hold back after he was sacked by Daniel Levy on Monday morning.
After staying to collect his belongings, he reportedly had discussions with players for over four hours. A first-team source reveals that the 58-year-old told players the truth about their performances.
However, it is revealed that this was not the first time Mourinho let some of his players know what he really thought as he often took aim at some in front of their teammates.
The report adds that the former Tottenham boss’ relationship with some of his squad hit rock bottom after Spurs were knocked out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb a month ago.
