Jose Mourinho gave his first public interview outside his London home after being sacked by Tottenham Hotspur.

The announcement of the former Chelsea mentor came three days after a 2-2 draw at Everton which ended with a concerning injury for Harry Kane and denied the 58-year-old Mourinho the chance to deliver Tottenham's first piece of silverware in 13 years when they face Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

That is the second of two games for Spurs this week. On Tuesday the club is due to hold a press conference ahead of Wednesday's meeting with Southampton, but it remains unclear who might be answering the questions as Daniel Levy looks to make his 10th managerial appointment in 20 years as chairperson.

Academy coach Ryan Mason took charge of training on Monday, but nothing has been said with regards to Wednesday's match, or Sunday's final.

Mourinho left with his coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra, but Ledley King, who was a defensive coach, remains at the club.
