Exasperated Jose Mourinho hilariously gives talkSPORT reporter the cold shoulder after he asks Tottenham boss to follow him back on Instagram after a string of brilliant posts on social media
- Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has become active on Instagram since the summer
- The Portuguese manager’s famous wit has been on full display in his posts
- Mourinho was asked by TalkSport’s ‘Moose’ for a follow-back on the social media
- The question prompted a hilariously exasperated sigh from the 57-year-old
Jose Mourinho has been letting his mischievous wit loose on Instagram this year, but deciding who to follow is clearly no laughing matter for the Spurs boss.
The 57-year-old made his first post in February and has been increasingly active on the platform this season, including some amusing post-match verdicts and a sarcastic dig at international football.
Referencing the ‘Special One’s’ social media in the build-up to Spurs’ clash with Manchester City on Saturday, talkSPORT’s Ian ‘Moose’ Abrahams asked: ‘I’m enjoying you on social media, you need to follow me back though.’

Mourinho paused before bowing his head with an exasperated smile, staying silent before the reported conceded defeat, replying: ‘Okay’.
The Spurs manager boasts 1.1million followers on Instagram but only returned the favour for 13 accounts, so ‘Moose’s’ request may have been a little hopeful.
Matilde Mourinho, his daughter, and David Attenborough are among only four personal accounts the former Real Madrid boss follows alongside a host of brands, Spurs and Formula One, which he is a passionate fan of.
One of Mourinho’s most popular posts came after a 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor back in October, sharing a shot of himself posing in front of his victorious Spurs stars, who were all using their smartphones.

After celebrating the end of the international break with a sarcastic rant on Instagram, Mourinho will host old rival Pep Guardiola in north London on Saturday, hoping to move top of the Premier League.
