Son Heung-min has said that it was “so sad” Jose Mourinho didn’t leave Tottenham after winning a trophy with the club.
After poor run of form Spurs decided to part ways with Mourinho and on Tuesday it was announced that the Portuguese will manage Roma starting from the next season.
Speaking to TV3 Sport (via TEAMtalk), Son said:
“It’s always sad if someone loses the day job. Having worked with him for 17 or 18 months, it’s been up and down, it’s been good and sometimes we’ve been not so good.
“I think for me and my memory he will still be one of the best managers in the world. It’s just so sad that he didn’t go with success. It was really sad because he is the guy that wins everything.
“It was the only team that he wasn’t successful, so I feel really sorry about this kind of thing.”
After Mourinho’s sacking, Spurs appointed Ryan Mason as interim coach, however, they are yet to appoint a new manager, with Scott Parker, Nuno Espirito Santo, Ralf Rangnick, Erik ten Hag and Graham Potter all heavily linked with a move to North London.
