JOSE MOURINHO proved he was a special friend after appearing to give his former staff member a lift to collect their stuff from Tottenham’s training ground.
The Special One was fired on Monday after 17 months in charge, just six days before Spurs face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
Mourinho’s coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin, and Giovanni Cerra were also relieved of their duties.
And the 58-year-old showed how much he valued loyalty after appearing to drive his goalkeeping coach Santos to Tottenham’s Enfield base today.
Mourinho, who had already cleared out his office the day before, then waited in his Aston Martin while Santos went inside to pick up his things.
It remains to see where the pair will end up next with the former Chelsea and Manchester United gaffer already ‘ready to go again’.
Mourinho said on Monday that he did not need to recharge his batteries and was ready to jump straight back into another job.
But this could be the time when he takes a stab at the Portugal national side or he has the option of returning as a football pundit.
Tottenham meanwhile have since confirmed that Ryan Mason has been appointed as interim head coach until the end of the season.
