He revealed that the Portuguese boss had sent her a letter with a photo of the two managers together, captioned ‘your two favorite handsome men’.
Speak against Sky Sports, Warnock said: ‘I had sent two beautiful pictures to me and my wife Sharon and me and Jose – They loved Jose.
The letter said, “Dear Sharon, enclosed you will find two pictures of your two favorite handsome men.” It was me and Jose. I thought maybe she just crossed me out with a pen because he’s a handsome boy, didn’t she? ‘
Mourinho has divided opinions in North London since taking the reins from Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019, but he has led Spurs to the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on April 25.

However, Warnock feels that Mourinho’s record speaks for itself and admits he can’t help but admire the 58-year-old, revealing that the pair have a good relationship and text year round.

‘He may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but look what he’s won,’ added the former Cardiff boss.

The men of Mourinho will face a game to win against Newcastle on Sunday, for two tough matches against the former club Manchester United and Everton.
