‘I need to put my salt and pepper on it’ – Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho explains funny Instagram posts
Nov. 20, 2020
Jose Mourinho has explained the secret behind his hilarious Instagram posts.
The Tottenham boss has left football fans in stitches with his posts after or before matches this season.
He exposed his players glued to their phones after a 1-0 win over Burnley, while showing his angry side following 1-0 defeat to Royal Antwerp.
Other posts have included Mourinho eating popcorn while watching a movie on a plane and mocking the November international break .
Asked by MOTDx host and former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas if he was solely responsible for the account, Mourinho replied: “Yes, of course.
“I don’t accept that it’s totally in the hands of my people. I also need to put my salt and pepper on it. That’s obvious.
“The phone one after the Burnley game, it just brings me back to my beginning as an assistant coach where my boss, Louis van Gaal, was telling me, ‘I don’t want players on their phones’.
“Twenty years later, we are in a situation where after the game every player is [on their phone], it’s normal that they are and I’m also [on it] too.
“As coaches, we last more than players so we get different generations of players.
“One of our qualities has to be to adapt to them and adapt to the new times. So it was a funny post!”
Tottenham have started the season strongly under Mourinho and are second in the Premier League table after eight matches.
Spurs will be hoping to extend their unbeaten league run to eight games when they host Man City on Saturday.
