Jose Mourinho Told Tottenham Hotspur Players 'Home Truths' After Sacking

Jose Mourinho was handed his P45 on Monday morning but it didn't stop the now former Tottenham Hotspur manager hanging around to hand out some 'home truths.'

Mourinho lost his job after 17 months in charge at Spurs, his third sacking in five years in the Premier League, following the 2-2 draw with Everton last Friday night.

That result had left them five points off the top four, and a place in next season's Champions League, and that was clearly enough for the north London side.

Whilst it was quite a lowkey sacking, due to the fact everyone was still losing their minds over the European Super League, Mourinho made sure he made all his noise at the club's training ground.

According to the Telegraph, the former Chelsea manager hung around for four hours after his meeting with Daniel Levy to tell players some 'home truths.'

The report says that after his two hour meeting Mourinho, who was dressed and ready to take training, cleared his belongings and then stayed for the chats.

As well as the harsh discussions on his final, the 58-year-old's 'home truths' chats weren't actually confined to post sacking.

The manager would take aim at some of his first team players in front of the rest of the team, which no doubt made for a great working atmosphere.

Players were left 'afraid to smile' after the Europa League loss to Dinamo Zagreb last month, in which the team were knocked out 3-2, having won the first leg 2-0.

That was the rock bottom for many at the club and the atmosphere at the training ground described as 'tense,' thought it took the club several weeks to get rid of the manager after that.

On Wednesday night, Gareth Bale may have identified himself as one of the people on the end of the former Real Madrid manager's 'home truths.'

After scoring in the 2-1 win over Southampton, Bale was asked what the team needed to do to change and the Welshman aimed a cheeky dig at his ex manager, saying, "Just tobe on the front foot a bit more. We want to attack, we're a big team, we have great players."

Seriously, imagine standing there whilst your now former boss has a go at you for something because he's not good enough at his job!
