Tottenham release footage of Jose Mourinho's first 48 hours at the club


Just like Mauricio Pochettino did in 2014, Jose Mourinho will get his Tottenham reign underway with a trip to West Ham - and that's about where the similarities end. 

The Portuguese has had very little time to instil his ideas ahead of the early kick-off on Saturday, having only had three days to get used to the players. 

Another thing he'll have to get used to in north London is being filmed incessantly.

Given the week Spurs have had, does anyone else wonder exactly how much Amazon are paying for that 'All or Nothing' documentary? 

It was certainly a bone of contention for Pochettino.

Per the Daily Mail, the Argentine objected to cameras being allowed into his private office, especially after Daniel Levy vetoed him filming training sessions even when he'd offered to pay the £80,000 for the cameras himself. 

On this occasion, however, it's Spurs TV who have been documenting Mourinho's arrival. 

In a video on the club's Youtube channel, fans are given a fly-on-the-wall point of view of the Special One sitting with Daniel Levy, meeting club staff. 

What's particularly intriguing is his first training session - it can all be seen below: 

The 56-year-old already looks to have a solid rapport with the players. He can be seen embracing Son Heung-min and jokingly shoving Dele Alli. 

There were widespread reports that the group had grown tired of hearing the same voice in training and were beginning to question Pochettino's methods. 

While there's only so much you can tell from watching players on the training ground, they definitely look sharp at the international break comes to a close. 

Manuel Pellegrini will not be looking forward to what could potentially be a rejuvenated Tottenham side. 

Mourinho then rounded off Thursday with his first press conference. Spurs received unprecedented interest in hearing him speak to the media for the first time. 


There were plenty of positive messages too. 

"If I don't win I cannot be happy," he said.

"And I cannot change that in my DNA. And I hope I can influence the players not to be happy without winning football matches.

"If you are happy by losing football matches, it is difficult to be a winner in any moment of your career. That's the basic principle."

It's early days but Mourinho already looks to be settling in well.
