Man United vs Tottenham preview: All eyes on Mourinho as he returns to Old Trafford

51 0


While the shelf life of most Jose Mourinho-coached teams is three seasons, it is clear that the honeymoon is still going through his first three matches in charge of Tottenham Hotspur.

But the reaction from the Manchester United faithful at Old Trafford will be the most-debated talking point heading into Wednesday’s matchup against the last club he most recently directed before taking over in London.

Mourinho was the third United manager following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, but in the end, did little better than predecessors David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. “The Special One” directed the Red Devils to the 2017 Europa League and Carabao Cup titles, but his distant runners-up finish to eternal rivals and centurions Manchester City the following term – ending 19 points adrift — was nothing to write home about.

And his ill-fated 2018-19 season was cut short in December, with Mourinho often at loggerheads with United vice chairman Ed Woodward regarding player recruitment in the transfer windows. Though often reluctant to bring those differences public, Woodward did admit it happened on more than one occasion.
