Spurs Exclusive: Pundit shares Mourinho bust-up reveal after London meeting

Frank McAvennie has claimed Tottenham player bust-ups with Jose Mourinho are aired and then quickly forgotten.

The former West Ham and Celtic striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, insisted the 57-year-old “has his mojo back” after meeting him in London last year.

Spurs dropped two points at Crystal Palace this afternoon, Harry Kane’s 15th goal of the season cancelled out by Jeffrey Schlupp late on.


The 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park extends Jose Mourinho’s side’s unbeaten run to 11 league games.

Mourinho was appointed as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor 12 months ago and has so far won 31 of his 57 games in charge.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Tottenham’s form in the 2020/21 campaign, McAvennie said: “I am a really big fan of Jose Mourinho.

“He is the kind of manager I would have loved to have played for. When he has a problem he tells you to his face and that is all you ask for as a player. You have an argument and then it is forgotten about.

“He has got that team all fighting for each other. He has turned them into winners. They believe in themselves.

“Everyone’s goal is to win trophies and his track record is proven.

“I met him last year when I was down in London for my birthday and it seems as if he has got his mojo back.”
