Former defender Jan Vertonghen of Tottenham shared his experiences of working with coach Jose Mourinho of Spurs.
The Belgian said to Sporza, “I didn’t play under him much but I knew he believed in me and he looked up at me. He is a great teacher. You go into the fire with a coach like that. Of course, Mourinho is very straightforward, both in a positive way and in a negative sense. You can ask him something if you win. His players are very close to him, they are his troops.
He can put pressure on you, make you feel very small, but he’ll be with you if you fight.”
