Jose Mourinho

Ex-Inter Milan, Man Utd, FC Porto and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was recently appointed as the Tottenham Hotspur boss and he has already started setting records after just one week in his new job.

Jose Mourinho became the first manager to lead six different teams into the knockout stage of the Champions League after he led Spurs to a last 16 berth in the competition.

Spurs reached the Champions League final in the last campaign before they were beaten 2-0 in the final by Merseyside giants Liverpool.

They are through to the knockout stage this season following the comeback victory recorded by Mourinho and his boys in their Group B clash with Olympiakos at home.

Olympiakos were 2-0 up at some point in the game before the Spurs players managed to recover from that deficit to win the game 4-2.

The Greek team took the lead through Youssef El-Arabi before Ruben Semedo added a second goal for Olympiakos who would have kept their Champions League last 16 qualification hopes alive with an away victory over Spurs.

The Premier League outfit pulled one back through Dele Alli on the stroke of halftime before three second half goals from Harry Kane (2) and Serge Aurier sealed a 4-2 win for the hosts thereby securing a knockout stage in the process.
