Jose Mourinho aimed a dig at former club Manchester United as he convinced Harry Kane to stay at Tottenham.
Mourinho’s return to Premier League management at Spurs was captured by the TV cameras for Amazon Prime’s All or Nothing documentary series.

“I think we have to build also your status in that direction. I am a little bit like that as a coach. The reality is that my dimension is universal.”
