Mourinho: Amazon doc felt like being in Big Brother

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says he won't be watching the new Amazon documentary set at the club. 

All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur will be aired on Amazon Prime, and offers a snapshot of a turbulent season behind the scenes at the North London club.

The first trailer for the series was released on Friday, and begins with the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino before highlighting the appointment of Mourinho.

Given Spurs' wading through mid-table, there's been increased interest in just how much will be saved from the cutting room floor.

But whatever the finished product looks like, the manager's remote will have landed elsewhere.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's North London derby, Mourinho was asked if he was worried about people seeing too much of what goes on in the dressing room.

The notoriously publicity-shy Portuguese replied, "I try to forget them during the time, if you ask me if it's something I enjoy, no.

"I don't like the feeling of being in Big Brother but I try to forget them. I think I have managed to do that for the majority of the time.

"I have no idea what is there, I have no concerns. Nothing is fake, everything is real.

"I think for them it must be great for them because they have day by day, 24 hours of what football club and dressing room is. They have everything.

"So, so, so, so real, nobody acted for it. It is just the way it is. Am I going to watch it? No. No I'm not. It is not something I want to do, also because I know better than anyone what our day by day is here but I think it will be very, very interesting for the people who love football and love sport.

"I think it will be really great for them."

Mourinho defended his goal-shy Tottenham side before the Arsenal clash.

In Thursday's scoreless draw at lowly Bournemouth, Spurs couldn't manage a single shot on target.

"We arrive in very dangerous positions, so many times in crossing positions," he told Friday's Zoom conference.

"We have very good percentages of ball possession, we spend the majority of the time in opponent's half, but no sharpness, no objective, always one more touch of the ball, no clear, aggressive, sharp killer decisions to go for the goal.

"In the end you get some stats that aren't really the game. Zero shots on target, yes, but how many times did we shoot, appear in crossing positions? How many times did we lose the last pass or cross?"

Mourinho also confirmed that Dele Alli will miss the Arsenal game.
