#PremierLeagueStories – #MattDoherty Reveals Text Conversation with #JoseMourinho before Tottenham transfer #THFC

Matt Doherty has revealed how Jose Mourinho wooed him over text message during his transfer to Tottenham Hotspur. Wolverhampton Wanderers agreed to sell the Irishman to Spurs in August in a £15million deal, bringing to an end his 10-year association with the club. And Doherty has now detailed the conversations he had with Mourinho in the build-up to his Wolves departure.

Matt Doherty said “I don’t think the club needing selling necessarily, Once I knew there was interest, it was pretty straightforward that I wanted to come to Tottenham and play for Tottenham this season. Fortunately for me, it’s managed to happen, but we were just talking and he would send me a video of the changing room saying ‘the changing room is waiting for you’ and stuff like that. He sent me a picture of the top. Just nice little things like that, that he didn’t have to do. I have to say the club’s been exceptional since I’ve been here. Not just him but general staff. When I came here, people tried to help me settle in, find places to live etc. They’ve really gone above and beyond so it’s made the experience really, really top class. From the outside, you just see the interviews, see him in the media and on the sidelines. But you don’t know him, you don’t realise the sense of humour that he has, the bond that he has with his players. In terms of that, I was pleasantly surprised.”
