Ted Lasso spoilers follow.
The finale saw Rupert Mannion's (Anthony Head) past finally catch up with him, with the under-pressure West Ham owner later losing his temper at a pivotal match and being booed off the pitch by fans after shoving his own manager to the ground.
While speaking to Deadline about season three, Mohammed touched on why fans didn't see the moment his character Nate Shelley learned about the downfall of his former boss Rupert – explaining that it as a "deliberate" omission.
"When we were filming earlier episodes, we were like 'Oh, God, I wonder what that scene is going to be like.' And then they didn’t include it," he said.
"I had a really good chat with Jason about it and he’s like, 'Why do we need to see that?'"
He added that Sudeikis believed that including Nate's reaction wouldn't have been in-keeping with the "positive and optimistic" nature of the show.
"It’s not important because the show is not about revenge. It’s about doing the right thing. It’s a lot more positive and optimistic," Mohammed summarised.
"So him just leaving and going straight to Jade, I felt like it was a really smart move. I think that scene would have just been too predictable. I think that’s what Ted Lasso does."
Following the finale episode, writer and titular star Sudeikis touched on the future of Ted Lasso, revealing that he believed the story was "done."
"This story is done. It sounds like such a political answer, but it's the truth. We only conceived these three [seasons]," he told Fly on the Wall podcast.
