Jose Mourinho has a massive rebuilding job on his hands with Tottenham Hotspur. In a bid to extract more effort and performance on the pitch, Mourinho is seen delivering an astonishing team talk where he demands the players to play ‘like a bunch of c***s’
The team talk was out in the open after a short segment of the Amazon documentary got leaked. While the trailer was released recently, this leaked footage gave the viewers a crystal clear idea of what they should expect from this edition of All or Nothing.
The documentary, which is slated to release next month on Amazon Prime is one of the most anticipated ones in the eyes of the football fans. The viewers would be able to experience all the backstage action of Tottenham Hotspur’s fall from grace after the Champions League final last year.
Incidents such as the aftermath of the 7-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich, the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino, the subsequent appointment of Jose Mourinho, the Special One’s team talks are all the subjects of interest.

The leaked footage shows one of Mourinho’s very first team meetings. While addressing the team, the former Manchester United manager claims that the squad needs to toughen up and not remain nice guys on the pitch if they have to win. He states:
‘You need to communicate, ‘And maybe I’m wrong – maybe I’m wrong – I feel that you are honestly a very nice group of guys.
“But for 90 minutes – for 90 minutes – you cannot be nice. For 90 minutes you have to be a bunch of c***s. Intelligent c***s. Not stupid c***s. B******s in the sense that you are there to win matches, man.”
The video ends with the reaction of former player Christian Eriksen, who puts on a subtle poker face while back-up goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman is seen having a laugh.
Tottenham are currently involved in a full-fledged race for a spot in the Europa League after they missed out on a Champions League spot for the first time in five years. The London based club have a huge fixture against fourth-placed Leicester City in their last home game. The club will then face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to conclude their season.
