Former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho feels "misled" about the path of projects he has taken up in the past which could point to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

Mourinho was appointed at Tottenham in 2019 but was sacked after 17 months in charge during a disappointing campaign for the Londoners.

The self-proclaimed Special One is now in charge at Roma and has been speaking about some of his old clubs.

He told GQ Portugal : "I make mistakes sometimes, I haven't always chosen the right project, or I may have been misled about the path of some projects.

"I've made mistakes or I've been led in a dishonest way into accepting what I shouldn't have, but in the end it's all the same.

"These aren't my words, they were said by someone who was much more important than me: Whoever has goals and drive, will never grow older.

"I still can't believe that I have 30 years of experience in professional football, or that I am 58 years old, because I am always renewing my motivation."

His time at Tottenham ended in the sack as did his last position at Manchester United.

How will Mourinho do at Roma? Comment below

He won three trophies at the Red Devils but was pushed out the door after his third season in charge didn't live up to expectation.

Mourinho added they were "mission impossible" jobs and he's taken on another in the Roma position.

"Lately I've been having very different projects to before. I went to Manchester United in a phrase of transition, not to say decay.

"I went to Tottenham who don't have a history of success. Now I go to Roma with new owners, but I immediately felt this empathy with the owners, the director and they straight away reignited the fire and passion I have for my job.

"So here I go on another Mission: Impossible. I say impossible because people tend to look at me and in their eyes there's only one way to measure success, which is that I have to win."

Mourinho will start at Roma next season but for now he has taken the role as pundit for the Euros.

He has given his verdict on all the big matches, claiming France should win the tournament.

And while he claimed it would take a "miracle" for Scotland to beat England before their 0-0 draw, he was full of praise for Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour after the game.

He told talkSPORT: "The kid Gilmour was the difference, he was always showing, he wanted the ball under the pressure.

"McGinn could be a bit higher and the two strikers worked so hard. The last action of the game is an example of their mentality.

"Steve Clarke organised the game tactically very well, but more importantly than that was the spirit."
