There are mixed feelings on Jose Mourinho's return to the Premier League, a year since leaving Manchester United.
A huge section of fans, Tottenham especially, don't believe Daniel Levy made a wise decision to give the 'special one' reigns at the club.
Pochettino was a fan favorite at the London club, he managed to lift the club to a level that they havent been in the recent past, and despite going for five years without a trophy, his work is bare for all to see.
The fans' opinion aside, there is one thing that many will agree on, that the Premier League missed Jose Mourinho, and this is why;
1. His famous quotes
Mourinho is known for his sharp words, he is full of confidence and always speaks his mind. Over the years, since his first stint at Chelsea, the Portuguese has treated the media and fans alike to some of the best managerial quotes. Whether he loses or wins, the special one will have some words for you.
His long-standing feud with former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was one of the most documented in the history of modern football, and it added colour to the beautiful game.
Here are some of his best quotes.
“If he is right and I am afraid of failure it is because I didn’t fail many times. Eight years without silverware, that’s failure! He’s a specialist in failure. If I do that in Chelsea, eight years, I leave and don’t come back.” - a dig aimed at Wenger
“If I wanted to have an easy job…I would have stayed at Porto – beautiful blue chair, the UEFA Champions League trophy, God, and after God, me.”
"I prefer not to speak. If I speak, I am in big trouble."
2. Touchline celebrations
Mourinho is well remembered for his sprint down Old Trafford touchline when Porto knocked out Manchester United in the Champions League. He might have come back to England with Chelsea in 2014 older, and wiser, but his touchline celebrations are to be envied.
If you were to rank touchline celebrations, Mourinho could be in the top three, probably behind Klopp and Guardiola in terms of energy.
3. Feuds with match officials
Mourinho famously poked Barcelona assistant Tito Vilanova after a wild tackle by Madrid defender Marcelo on Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas sparked a scuffle between the sides at Nou Camp while in charge of Real Madrid.
Back to the Premier League, the Portuguese has been banned on several occasions because of his drama on the touch line, and has been sent off in a number of times.
While at Man United, he furiously kicked a water bottle in a furious reaction to a booking for Paul Pogba during the 1-1 home draw with West Ham, their weekend opponents.
The Premier League missed the 'special one' and his return, coupled with the presence of Klopp and Guardiola, it's interesting times for football fans, and more especially Premier League lovers.
