Jose Mourinho says he had no contact with Arsenal before taking over as Tottenham’s new manager

Jose Mourinho allegedly said that he never had any contact with Arsenal for sacking Unai Emery before he took over as Tottenham’s new manager.

However, reports says that Mourinho had met Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi earlier this month, and Emery was sacked on Friday, just nine days after Mourinho took over as Spurs boss.

Mourinho, in a statement said, “When it was written that I was in a meeting with Mr Sanllehi, it was not true.”

Besides Mourinho and others, Argentine Pochettino has also been linked with replacing Emery. Mourinho further said, “I look forward to playing against Arsenal. I want to play against Arsenal. I know what it means for our fans.”

Spurs is going to host the Gunners at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in late April.
