Jose Mourinho in numbers: Are Tottenham getting the 'Special One' or a fading force?

Eight domestic league titles, eight domestic cups and four major European trophies - you don't have to dig too deep into Jose Mourinho's track record to see why Tottenham have appointed him as their manager.

Between the sun setting on Tuesday night and rising again on Wednesday morning, Spurs ended Mauricio Pochettino's popular reign and replaced him with the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss.
A decisive move, a divisive decision. The Portuguese is a serial winner of trophies - something Spurs have ufabetคาสิโนออนไลน์ been sorely lacking - but he also somewhat blotted his copybook with a troubled reign at United, which included accusations of dull, pragmatic football and clashes with players.
So have Tottenham appointed the 'Special One' or yesterday's man? BBC Sport looks through the numbers of his career so far.

A serial winner
For a club without a league title since 1961 and whose last trophy was the 2008 League Cup, Tottenham's move for Mourinho is understandable.
Pochettino did คาสิโนขั้นต่ำ10บาท some wonderful things during his four and a half years, but a trophy eluded him - Spurs lost the 2015 League Cup final to Chelsea and were beaten by Liverpool in last season's Champions League showpiece, and they finished second in the Premier League in 2017.
This is Mourinho's eighth club in four countries, and he has won league titles in all of those - twice in Portugal and Italy and three times in England.

The 56-year-old has won the main domestic cup competition in all four of the countries in which he has managed and three League Cups in England.
He is also the only manager to have won both the Champions League and the Uefa Cup/Europa League more than once - winning both with Porto, the former with Inter and the latter with Manchester United.
As it stands, he is beating his new club 20-17 on major trophies won.In 14 completed seasons as a manager, Mourinho has only finished outside the top three of the league in which he is managing once. The only time he has left a club in a position lower than sixth was when Chelsea sacked him in 2016 with the side 16th.

Across his career, his win percentage is a superb 64.8%, and he has picked up a stellar 2.15 points per game on average.In the Premier League, he has won 61.9% of his matches. Only four managers to have taken charge of 50 or more games in the competition can better his 2.10 points per game - Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola (2.39), former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson (2.16), ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte (2.14) and Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool (2.12).
