TOTTENHAM Hotspur boss Jose Mourino has once again done what he does best – stir the pot of controversy. But this time, the Portuguese’s controversy comes as motivation for the Spurs players and huge entertainment value for the masses.

Recently leaked footage from the upcoming Amazon documentary on the club captures Mourinho urging his players to be a “bunch of c**ts” during an apparent meeting session held behind closed. This snippet of the highly-anticipated series has been doing the rounds on social media and gives a unique glimpse into Mourinho’s unique motivational tactics.
You need to communicate, and maybe, I’m wrong … I feel that you are honestly a very nice group of guys,” said Mourinho per the UK’s daily print newspaper Metro. “But for 90 minutes … you cannot be nice. For 90 minutes you have to be a bunch of c**ts. Intelligent c**ts, not stupid c**ts.”
Titled All of Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, a first-look trailer of the documentary was released last week by Amazon – an American multinational technology company which, among other things, focuses on digital streaming – and covered the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino and the moment Mourinho walked into the managerial hot-seat as his replacement at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
With the amount of talking points which have accompanied Spurs’ campaign this term, the documentary promises to be a box office hit. Other exciting moments captured to look forward to, according to documentary makers, is the 7-2 Champions League hammering at the hands of Serge Gnabry and Bayern Munich, as well as domestic cup defeats to Norwich City and Colchester United.
Remember the Eric Dier incident where the midfielder jumped into the stands to confront a fan giving abuse to his younger brother? There is also that to look forward to along with the recent Son Heung-min and Hugo Lloris clash of egos in the 2-0 Premier League win over West Ham United. Classic Mourinho has said he won’t be watching the documentary when it drops later this year, but plenty of the clubs’ fans will be itching to see it.
