Jose Mourinho, the "fried egg specialist" talks about how much he misses football

Jose Mourinho is hopeful the Premier League season will be allowed to finish and thinks it would be special even without the fans present. The Tottenham boss feels that the stadiums won’t feel empty even if supporters were not allowed to gather for games amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Spurs have a total of nine top-flight matches remaining in the 19-20 campaign and have not played since a Champions League defeat to RB Leipzig on March 10. 

While talking to Sky Sports, Mourinho said, “If we play the remaining nine matches this season will good for every one of us. It will be good for football, for the Premier League. If we play football behind closed doors I’d like to think that football is never behind closed doors. With cameras, it means that millions and millions are watching. So if one day we walk into this empty stadium, it will not be empty, not at all.” 

The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager was also questioned about Thursday, marking 15 years since he won his first Premier League title. He said, “I prefer to think I’m going to have a fourth Premier League trophy. I have three, I prefer to think I’ll have four.”

Mourinho has also been volunteering to help deliver fresh produce from the club’s training ground to Spurs’ stadium, where it is sent out to the local community. The 57-year-old also said that he misses football but it’s the normal life that he misses more. When asked about how he passes his time, he told that he watches games, games that he never watched before and he believes that being patient with the current situation is the key.

Mourinho has been living with three of his coaching staff amid the lockdown and when asked about the cooking arrangements, Mourinho replied, “The other guys are a bit better than I am! I’m the fried egg specialist.”
