Jose Mourinho has revealed that he will not be looking at Amazon Everything or nothing documentary about Tottenham’s chaotic 2019-20 season and focused on ‘the feeling of being in Big Brother’ as film crews continue to follow the squad.
Speaking of Zoom before his Friday press conference, when asked if he will tune into the last eight-part series later this summer, Mourinho focused on the entire project.
“I don’t like the feeling of being with Big Brother,” he said. “I usually tried to forget them.
Jose Mourinho has revealed that he has no plans to watch the Amazon All or Nothing documentary to be released later this year, detailing Tottenham’s dramatic 2019-20 campaign

“It has to be great for them, because they have what a football club is day after day. Am I going to look at it? No.
“It’s not something I want. Also because I know better than anyone what is here from day to day. ‘
The dramatic moment Mourinho walked into Tottenham’s training ground when the replacement for Mauricio Pochettino aired as a foretaste of the documentary on Friday.
Pochettino was fired in November after five years in charge and Tottenham made the power play to appoint former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Mourinho.

The teaser clip, which was posted on Friday morning, shows club chairman Daniel Levy rationalizing the decision before it goes into shock in the canteen shortly before Mourinho’s arrival.
He waves before the clip cuts to the Amazon’s end record, giving fans a taste of the drama they can expect when the full documentary series airs in late July.
Tottenham fell in 14th place when Pochettino was relieved of his duties.
Although it has not been a smooth ride since Mourinho took the lead, the club is now in ninth place.
Pochettino had brought Spurs to the Champions League final in Madrid last summer and narrowly lost to Liverpool, but the start of the 2019-20 season proved bitterly disappointing and Mourinho was hired with the club for trophy success.

When it came to editing, Amazon’s cameras have taken enough action this season to capture on Spurs.
In March, Dier climbed onto the stands to confront a fan after an FA Cup home defeat to Norwich. That earned the English midfielder a four-game ban and a £ 40,000 fine from the Football Association – a decision that infuriated Mourinho.
A week after Dier’s clash, Tottenham was knocked out of the Champions League by RB Leipzig when their season was unraveled. They also lost 7-2 to Bayern Munich earlier in that league, when Pochettino was manager.
Amazon continued to film behind the scenes in Tottenham, despite the coronavirus pandemic that forced the Premier League suspension in March.
