Jose Mourinho welcomed David Beckham to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for a guided tour – and revealed why he felt the former Man utd midfielder was fortunate in retirement.

Prior to the coronavirus lockdown, the 45-year-old paid a visit to what would have been his local club as a kid having grown up in Chingford, north London.

Beckham and Mourinho were brought together by AIA, who sponsor the Premier League outfit and for whom the former real Madrid playmaker is a brand ambassador.

The ex- England skipper’s visit to Tottenham has been charted in a series of videos released by AIA, with the second episode focussing on the facilities Spurs have at their state of the art home.



Jose Mourinho told David Beckham he was lucky to still look like a player in retirement

Mourinho first took Beckham into the changing room, before the pair headed to a small gym in the bowels of the stadium where the pair agreed it was better than anything they had seen in their player days.

And that was where the Portuguese boss made his admission to the Englishman as the pair discussed the impact improved facilities would have on players when they hang up their boots.



The pair also marveled at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’s modern facilities

“I have to say again you are lucky because you are one of the few guys that I see after their playing career and you [still] look like a player, “said Mourinho.

“The majority of guys, they have problems in here [in the back], problems in their knees, problems in their ankles.

“You will see these guys [the current players], when they finish their career it will be different. “

As the tour continued, the duo met Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy before heading down the tunnel and out on to the pitch at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And Mourinho again made another frank admission to Beckham, noting something that would let him know whether the upcoming match would be good or bad.

“If you (the players) don’t enjoy walking there, I am in trouble, I am in trouble,” revealed the former Chelsea chief.
