Spurs manager Mourinho denies Guardiola behind bald look: I feel asleep!

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has joked that his new bald haircut came about after he fell asleep in the barber's chair.

Social media has been alive with debate claiming Mourinho is sporting the haircut to tease counterpart Pep Guardiola.

In 2014, Mourinho said of Guardiola: "When you enjoy what you do, you don't lose your hair, and Guardiola is bald. He doesn't enjoy football."

But Mourinho says it was simply a mistake that he now has no hair,.

"Sometimes I like to feel the cold weather and I like to change a little bit,' Mourinho told Sky Sports. "But this time was not the case.

"I fell asleep [in the barber's chair] and when I woke up it was so bad that I said to him 'bring the [number] one'. Hopefully, it will grow back again."
