Tottenham Hotspur found themselves in a hard position after just 19 minutes on Tuesday night. Spurs were 2-0 down against Greek side Olympiacos in the Champions League, and everything pointed out Jose Mourinho was going to get his first loss as the team’s manager.
The Portuguese took charge of his first home game after starting his tenure with a win at West Ham this past weekend. As expected, he would have been desperate to follow that up with another three points in the continental tournament.
It didn’t look like things were going to favor the English side as their poor defending was exposed early on and the visitors raced into a lead. However, goals on either side of the half-time brought the Spurs back to life.
The comeback was finished when Serge Aurier bagged a third goal to complete the turnaround before Harry Kane added a fourth to put the Premier League side in full control of the match.
Mou was absolutely enchanted with the reaction from his players and the celebration of Aurier’s goal is the biggest proof of that.
He has a history in the Premier League, but the so-called ‘Special One’ keeps showing his passion and desire he has to make the North Londoners a successful team.
