Jose Mourinho is having a great comeback with Tottenham, as the Portuguese boss keeps making big things with the Spurs and this time he achieved something he never could do with his prior team, Manchester United.
Tottenham earned a 5-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League today, doing something Mou couldn’t do since 2015, where he was Chelsea’s manager.
This marked the first time the Special One has seen one of his teams score five in a single league match since he was still with the Blues back in 2015.
What’s more impressive here is the fact that he never could do that during his spell with Manchester United in two and a half seasons in charge of the Red Devils. That should say how his whole stint at Old Trafford went down.

He wasn’t the most popular boss in Manchester, with his style of football not seeming to go down well with the club’s fans as he struggled to ever really feel comfortable with that job. Now it’s looking quite different for Spurs, with the Lillywhites playing some fantastic football as they thrashed Burnley this Saturday.
Harry Kane scored twice, while Son Heung-min’s stunning solo effort was surely the pick of the bunch as the North Londoners put on a real show for their fans.
United fans must be wondering what went wrong with Mou during his stay there, as things are going very well with Tottenham now, who look back on track for a top-4 finish this season.
