Mourinho Teaches Tottenham Squad How To Pronounce His Name In Training

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho was featured in a clip from the upcoming Amazon Prime documentary, shared online by BBC Radio 1, DJ Annie Mac. The Portuguese boss appeared to be teaching his squad the correct pronunciation of his name.

The former Chelsea boss had helped his team to 6th position in the EPL after a torrid start to the season that saw them axe their former manager Maurricio Pochetino.

Tottenham finished above Wolves, Shefield and Arsenal as his side that lost the Champions league Final to England neighbours liverpool, now have to scramble at Europa next season. A compensation for the portugueses that brought the club from the abyss of relegation.

In a leaked footage shared from the upcoming ‘Amazon Original Series, All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur.’ Mourinho was seen correcting his players on the best way to say his name properly.


In the behind the scenes clip, Mourinho asks Japhet Tanganga how to correctly say his name.

Mourinho then says: “I hate to tell the wrong names man.

“Everybody says my name wrong.

“Everybody calls me Jose, I’m not Jose, I’m Jose.”

Mourinho puts emphasis on a hard J as the start of his name, as in Joe.

He clearly doesn’t like the Spanish pronunciation of his name, with the J sounding like an H.

Quillcastleng had earlier reported that across the 2019/20 Premier League season, van Dijk comfortably made more passes than any other player in the top flight.
