Roma coach Mourinho criticises Tottenham for sacking Nuno

Roma coach Jose Mourinho has criticised Tottenham for sacking Nuno.

Nuno was relieved of his duties as Spurs boss on Monday after just 10 league games in charge, with Spurs winning five and losing five since the former Wolves boss became the first full-time Tottenham coach since Mourinho's sacking in April.

Mourinho told Sky Italia: "Nuno Espirito Santo did a great job at Wolverhampton, not in a year or a few months, but in four or five years.

"I can say that now (Tottenham) have a very good coach, but even before they had a very good coach."

Mourinho's comments appear to also be a dig at new Spurs boss Antonio Conte, with the Special One a major rival of the Italian coach during their time at Manchester United and Chelsea respectively.
