Mourinho was sacked after just 17 months in charge after slipping down the Premier League and exiting the Europa League.

Ryan Mason took temporary charge before Levy brought in Nuno Espirito Santo from Wolves, before axing him and replacing him with Antonio Conte.

Now Mourinho has opened up on his time with the North Londoners before his team Roma’s Europa League clash against Leicester.

The 59-year-old said: ‘In my long career with so many things that happened to me for good for bad, that one is quite unique, but I also think Mr Levy is quite a unique person.”

After sacking Mourinho, Levy said at the time: “Jose and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a club.

“Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic.

“On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged.

“He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for their contribution.”

The Portuguese boss replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019.

He will now lead Roma in their Europa Conference League clash against Leicester – describing the much-maligned competition as his “Special One”.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss explained: “I see this as my competition now.

“I’m not in the Champions League or the Europa League.

“I’m in this and I’m in it to win it. It’s MY competition!

“We need to fight to the bitter end because we have suffered for this competition and dropped points chasing it.”

Roma have not won a European trophy for 50 years — and that was the 1972 Anglo-Italian Cup.
