Former Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho always enjoyed beating Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Terry revealed how the Portuguese manager would tell Chelsea players to throw caution to the wind to make Tottenham ‘suffer’.

Terry told beIN Sports: “If we were two or three goals up at half-time against certain teams – Spurs being one of them – he’d say “go and kill them, go and make them suffer today.

“‘Make it five, six, seven, eight. Let them know Chelsea are here’. But as players on the pitch we were like ‘no we’ll take this, I want the clean sheet bonus!'”

Meanwhile, Terry has told Tottenham captain Harry Kane to join a ‘bigger and better club’ as he won’t win anything at Tottenham.

Speaking on beIN SPORTS, Terry said: “I think Harry Kane has got ambitions to go and win trophies – he’s clearly not going to do that at Tottenham is he? Let’s be honest. He’s not, clearly. Let’s be honest with ourselves.

“He’s one of the best strikers in the world. He wants to win trophies. He wants to play for the best and biggest teams.

“Spurs are not that, Spurs are not going to give him what he wants. He wants to finish his career with some trophies.”
