Chelsea and Tottenham will renew their rivalry this weekend at the Tottenham Stadium on Sunday 22nd, and it’ll be a heated fixture as there’s already so much buzz leading to this fixture.
Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent has revealed that this game will mean so much to Jose Mourinho, and he’ll be lying if he says otherwise.
“I know Mourinho will say that playing his ex-team doesn’t really mean anything but I can say as an ex-player that whenever I was playing against an old team, you always wanted to put one over on them,” the 35-year-old told GentingBet.
“Whether they let you go and you want to show them that they made the wrong decision or you decide to go because it’s the best thing for your career and you want to show that you’ve improved as a player. There’s a lot riding on it.
“If he’s going to say that this game doesn’t mean anything to him then I think he’s lying.”
Jose Mourinho has now confirmed what Darren Bent said by saying he doesn’t care about the Blues anymore.
Speaking to Spurs TV after training on Friday, Jose said: “I feel great. I don’t care about the narratives. There are things you cannot deny, you cannot delete, and I wouldn’t deny and wouldn’t delete because it was an amazing period in my career.
“This is not about what I gave to my previous club, this is about what I can give to my club. So, for me, there is only one club. My club. Tottenham. For me to play against Chelsea, to play against Arsenal, it’s the same thing.”
And pointing to the badge on his training shirt, Jose added: “The only thing that matters is the cockerel here.”
