But current Spurs supremo Mourinho, whose side host Leeds this lunchtime, said: “I'm only a disciple of my father and I don't like that situation in football.
“Even younger coaches, even people that worked with me before, I don't like that: 'Oh, they are a disciple of Jose'. Everyone is an individual with their own ideas. You can be influenced by one or another but, in the end, what matters is the individual.
“And I think to speak about Mr Bielsa is for people who know him well. I don't know him well.
“For sure, he has to be a very good coach but I'm not the person to analyse him because I don't know him even personally. I just shook hands a couple of times."
