If you do not consider his time in Portugal, Jose Mourinho has played against formerly coached clubs on 11 occasions in the past. The Portuguese tactician has won five, lost five and drawn one match against his former clubs. Four of the losses have been at the hands of Chelsea when Jose Mourinho was appointed as the coach of Manchester United. But while Chelsea have haunted Mourinho in the recent past, there was a time when the former FC Porto coach killed UEFA Champions League dreams of fans present at Stamford Bridge in 2010.
Jose Mourinho inflicted two world-class wins against Chelsea back in the last-16 tie as coach of Inter Milan. Inter Milan won 1-3 on aggregate with goals coming in from Diego Milito, Esteban Cambiasso and Samuel Eto. Wednesday’s match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United will be the 12th time that Jose Mourinho will play against a club that he has coached in the past. Can ‘The Special One’ pull off a special win upon his return to Old Trafford with Tottenham Hotspur?
