    TOTTENHAM chiefs left Mauricio Pochettino furious when installing Amazon documentary cameras in his office – days after refusing his request to buy some HIMSELF for training purposes.

    The 'All Or Nothing' flick was announced earlier in the season and will now switch its focus from sacked coach Poch to Jose Mourinho.

    As part of the deal to replace the Argentine, Mourinho will have had to agree to letting Amazon cameras have intense access to his running of the club.

    But it was a row over the flick with chairman Daniel Levy that helped spark Pochettino's falling out with the club.

    Daily Mail report that the former manager asked for £80,000 worth of cameras to be installed around his training pitch to evaluate sessions.

    Despite that seeming like a fairly minor amount of money for a club like Spurs, the request was refused – even when Poch offered to pay for them himself.

    And the coach was pushed over the limit when Amazon were given the green light to install cameras in his personal office. They were reportedly worth a similar amount to the ones he wanted.

    JOSE MOURINHO has told Tottenham there are three players he would like to bring in when the transfer window opens, it has been claimed.

    Mourinho gave chairman Daniel Levy a clear vision of what he sees as the future of the squad before the club agreed to appoint him as their new manager.

    And despite assuring them he believes there is quality in the squad to work with, the Independent say the 56-year-old made it clear there are a trio of targets he has in mind for January.

    Top of the list is Sporting Lisbon playmaker Bruno Fernandes – who has been a long-term target for Spurs under Pochettino.

    But the article also claims Mourinho wants Spurs to try to sign Benfica star Ruben Dias and also Manchester United outcast Nemanja Matic.

    The pursuit of Fernandes is an obvious one, as the North London club look to find a replacement for Christian Eriksen as the creative force in the side.

    MAURICIO POCHETTINO'S son Sebastiano has quit Spurs' Sports Science team – but his younger brother Maurizio is staying as a star winger for the Under-23s.

    Sebastiano survived Tuesday night's cull when Tottenham axed boss Pochettino senior and backroom staff, before successor Jose Mourinhobrought in his own team.

    But Sebastiano, 24, has now departed, three years after joining Spurs.

    After achieving a First Class degree in Applied Sports Science from Southampton Solent University, he was named Tottenham's Sports Science Assistant.

    He then headed the department from June 2017 until his exit. It means highly-rated Maurizio 18, is the only Pochettino still at Spurs.

    And while his dad's fortunes waned, Maurizio's have blossomed.

    He earned his first professional contract over the summer and is already shining for the club's U-23s.
