The first three episodes of Amazon’s behind the scenes documentary of Tottenham’s season has generated plenty of buzz on social media following their release on Monday.
As expected, the series was dominated by Jose Mourinho, with the majority of the first three episodes being focused on the Portuguese head coach’s attempts to understand his new squad of players after replacing Mauricio Pochettino at the helm.
Multiple team meetings from Mourinho’s first few weeks at the club are shown in the documentary, where 57-year-old is seen demanding more aggression from his players on the pitch.
However, some fans on social media have picked up on a surprising detail from the scene in which Mourinho addresses his squad at the training ground after the team fell to their first defeat under his stewardship at Old Trafford.
Fans spotted that the Tottenham head coach had the popular computer game Football Manager 20 installed on his laptop.
The game has reportedly been useful for clubs when it comes to scouting young talents and it appears that Jose Mourinho or his backroom staff are utilising the game.

Spurs Web Opinion
I personally did not find this too surprising as Football Manager has quite an extensive database of young players around the world, which can be useful for clubs when they are looking to ascertain information. However, I doubt Jose actually has the time to play the game often in his spare time.
