Jose Mourinho has completed 50 Premier League matches in charge of Tottenham, so let’s see how the current gaffer’s record measures up to Mauricio Pochettino’s last 50.
Coincidentally, his first and 50th matches in charge both occurred against West Ham at London Stadium. Appointed on Nov. 20, 2019, Jose began his tenure at Tottenham in dreamlike fashion, with Spurs beating the Hammers 3-2 after scoring three unanswered goals in an explosive 13 minutes. That win represented Spurs first in 13 away matches.
Jose yesterday witnessed his side lose to West Ham 2-1. The contrasting results epitomize Jose’s first 50 matches at the helm of Tottenham Hotspur, his reign seeing more ups and downs than a rickety skiff bobbing in the open ocean during a tropical storm.
While it’s not a direct apples-to-apples comparison, there are some intriguing takeaways when delving into how each manager faired at the club from an equal 50-match sample size.
