Jose Mourinho let rip at Tottenham stars during final hours at training ground

Jose Mourinho reportedly held talks with Tottenham Hotspur’s players at the club’s training ground for over four hours after he was sacked.

Chairman Daniel Levy relieved Mourinho of his duties on Monday, just six days before the Carabao Cup final, with Ryan Mason being appointed interim head coach.

Spurs were sat seventh in the Premier League when Mourinho was dismissed and crashed out of the Europa League last month, with Dinamo Zagreb overturning a 2-0 first-leg deficit to win the tie 3-2 on aggregate.

According to a report from the Telegraph, Mourinho’s relationship with some members of the squad hit an all-time low following Spurs’ Europa League exit.

Following a two-hour meeting with club chiefs on Monday where he was informed that he would be dismissed, Mourinho is said to have held a series of discussions with the players where he told them ‘home truths’ about their recent performances.

New interim boss Mason has said that his appointment marks a fresh start for all the players, saying: “Listen I don’t know what went on before over there.

“All I can take is what the group have been like in the past 24 hours and they’ve been supportive and they’ve come in and they’ve wanted to work and they’ve listened and that’s all I can ask for.

“Whatever happened before, I wasn’t involved with, I’m not too sure what happened, but all I can take is the players, how they trained yesterday, how they trained today, the fitness of the guys, the mentality, the mindset, how the feeling is within the group, within the individual, then it’s our job to pick a team to win games of football.

“I think the most important thing for us is to take it game by game. In football things can change so quickly, the last 24 hours have shown that.

“But results can happen, things can happen and the most important thing for us is to prepare ourselves and be in the right frame of mind to go and win football matches and see where that takes us.”
