Mourinho fulfilled his promise. He took a group photo with North Macedonian journalist Igor Alexandlovich.
In the video call conference before the Tottenham Europa League, reporter Igor had a conversation with Mourinho:
"Hello, coach, this is a unique opportunity for me to ask you two questions, and I want to make a request to you on behalf of my father."
"First greet you on behalf of my father, but he is now in heaven. Once, when he was very ill, he told me that if he had a chance to see you, he wanted to ask you for a photo because he took me to grow up. I like you very much, no matter which team you coach, no matter you win or lose, he respects you very much."
"If you allow me to take a photo with you, I will frame the photo and place it in my father's resting place. If your team has a good result, will you allow my request?"
Mourinho replied: "Thank you very much. No matter what the outcome is, we have to take a group photo. The photo is agreed, we take a photo. If you meet us before the game, or in a hotel, the photo may be easier. If so After the game, take photos after the game, it has nothing to do with the result."
"I would be happy to take a photo with you. It is my honor to pay tribute to your father. He values me so much that I don't deserve it."
Mourinho did not wait until after the game. At the end of the press conference, under the arrangement of the staff, he met with Igor and completed this photo. Igor's wish was fulfilled.
