Duncan Castles has detailed what Daniel Levy and Jose Mourinho were arguing about just before Tottenham sacked the Portuguese.

The journalist claims the disagreement was over the idea of resting players ahead of the Carabao Cup final.

“The information I have from people close to Mourinho is that ahead of that game he had talked to Daniel Levy and he explained that he intended to rest two or three of his most-used players for the Premier League game against Southampton in order to get his team in the best possible position for the League Cup final,” Castles said.

“My information is that Levy told him ‘no, I want you to play your best team against Southampton, because league position is more important than winning that cup’. People close to Mourinho believe that this was a form of provocation from Levy that he had decided he was going to change manager.”

“People close to Mourinho believe that if he hadn’t said that, Levy would have used something else to provoke him and manufacture this dismissal. The decision had been made.”
