Mourinho Pays Tribute to Prince Philip After News Of His Death

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has paid tribute to Prince Philip after news broke of the royal’s death.

Buckingham Palace announced the Duke’s death in a statement at midday on Friday at the age of 99, having been married to the Queen for more than 70 years and spending decades in the service of the Royal Family.

Mourinho was obviously a fan and interrupted his Zoom with members of the media during his press conference, as he prepares his side for the visit of his former club Manchester United on Sunday afternoon to pay a special tribute to the late royal.

 “I want to express my condolences to the Royal family,” Mourinho said.

“To be very honest, I have a deep, deep, deep respect for the Royal family. All my condolences. It's not just this country sharing this feeling.

“I have the utmost respect. I feel sad for the departure of Prince Philip on a personal basis, because I have only positive feelings for the meaning of the family.
