Jose Mourinho Once Ripped Up A Transfer Contract In Front Of A Player

Jose Mourinho once allowed Glen Johnson to leave Chelsea, and agreed to his move, before ripping up the signed deal in front of the player's face.

Spurs' boss Mourinho isn't always best known for his man management. Certain players love him but many others end up falling out with the two time Champions League winner.

Johnson's story is certainly of a player who the 'Special One' fell out with. Speaking on talkSPORT, the former Chelsea full back talked about asking his manager for a move.

Initially Jose turned the request down before changing his mind, when Lyon came in for the right back Mourinho accepted the deal, before changing his mind.

Johnson was the first signing of the Roman Abramovich era at Stamford Bridge, joining in July 2003 with Mourinho moving to west London a year later.

He played 19 times in the league in his debut season before Mourinho joined and signed Paulo Ferreira, who became the first choice right back.

Johnson only played eight games in all competitions in his third season at the club before going on loan to Portsmouth the following year and signing for them permanently the following season.

Mourinho's history of falling out with players certainly isn't slowing down even now. The Spurs' boss has already reportedly clashed with midfielder Tanguay Ndombele, despite only being at the club since November.

According to reports the former Lyon midfielder already wants to leave north London after being openly criticised by the manager, clearly it's something against the Ligue 1 club.

After Wigan defeated Hull 8-0 on Tuesday night, to give their chances of staying in the Championship a big boost, Johnson talked about his own experience of a big loss.

The 35-year-old talked about a moment when he was a teenager at West Ham and the team lost 6-0, although he was quick to point out he didn't start the game.

Still if he'd lost 6-0 at Chelsea it sounds like Mourinho would have blamed him, no matter what.
