Jose Mourinho was truly loved by the Chelsea fans, and he earned the title the Special One in just his first season at Chelsea.

Three Premier League titles over two stints, Jose Mourinho proved to be a special one indeed, but he also came with a bag of troubles. Dressing room unrest, fight with the media and board, anger over transfers and a host of negative incidents have followed him everywhere he has gone to, from Real Madrid back to Chelsea, Manchester United and now Tottenham.

Chelsea fans lost it when he moved to rival club Manchester United, and by the time he joined Tottenham, he had already lost the special bond he had with the Blues fans.

Mourinho was appointed to take over from Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019, and signed a deal that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2023 season.

After an impressive start to the Spurs job where he took Tottenham from 14th in the Premier League to finish sixth in his first season, thus securing Europa League qualification, although Spurs were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage by Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

Mourinho’s second season started well, with Spurs challenging for the title at the start of the campaign, but has since seen their season stutter and are currently seventh in the table, five points off the Champions League places.

The Special One has now been sacked after a run of poor results as we enter the final stage of the season, with Spurs having the League Cup to fight for.
