Mourinho took charge of Tottenham from 2019 to 2021. When Kim Min-jae was a member of Beijing Guoan, he strongly wanted to recruit, but it was known that the Tottenham club was lukewarm and failed to recruit. Through this interview, he confirmed the situation at the time.
For Tottenham, it was hesitant to spend 10 million euros on a Korean defender playing in the Chinese league, but looking at the skills Kim Min-jae is proving in Europe, this was close to defeat. Coach Mourinho is facing a confrontation with Kim Min-jae, who he did not have.
