Spurs boss Mourinho hits back at Chelsea critics: You sacked me!

Jose Mourinho has hit back at Chelsea supporters who are annoyed he has joined Tottenham Hotspur.

During his time as Blues manager, Mourinho said he would never join Spurs due to their rivalry with the west London club.

The Portuguese went against his words this week when he replaced Mauricio Pochettino at the Spurs helm.

But he had a quick response when asked about his statement.

"Four years ago when you were at Chelsea you were asked whether you would come to Spurs and you said: "Never, I love the Chelsea fans too much". What's changed?' he was asked.

Mourinho replied: "That was] before I was sacked!"
