Three-time Premier League champion Jose Mourinho was the head coach of Tottenham Hotspur up he was relieved of his duties on 19 April 2021.
Mourinho started his Premier League career in London when he was named manager of Chelsea in June 2004, before leaving early in the 2007/08 campaign.
He returned to the Blues on 3 June 2013, nine years and a day after getting his first taste of management in England’s top tier.
The Portuguese had previously had a semi-professional football career before making his coaching breakthrough in the backroom staff of Sir Bobby Robson at Sporting Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona.
After brief but successful stints in charge at Benfica and Uniao de Leiria, he won the UEFA Champions League with Porto in 2004, only a year after lifting the UEFA Europa League trophy in his first full season as manager.
Mourinho also won back-to-back Portuguese league titles and two domestic cup competitions at Porto before Chelsea came calling.

They retained the Premier League crown a year later and won the FA Cup and the League Cup twice with Mourinho in charge.
Mourinho left Chelsea in 2007 and his next managerial role came with Inter Milan, where he won the Serie A title and the Italian Super Cup in his first season.
Inter then retained the title while winning the Coppa Italia and the UEFA Champions League in a memorable 2009/10 campaign.
Real Madrid appointed Mourinho as their coach in the summer of 2010, going on to win the Copa del Rey in 2011 and edge Barcelona to the 2011/12 La Liga title.

In his first season back at Stamford Bridge, he guided the Blues to third place, four points away from title winners Manchester City.
In the 2014/15 campaign Mourinho earned a third League Cup triumph with Chelsea after a 2-0 win over Spurs at Wembley Stadium. A third Premier League title was then secured following a 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace on Sunday 3 May 2015.
Chelsea's fortunes were to change in the following campaign and Mourinho left the club by mutual consent on 17 December 2015, departing for a second time with the Blues sat in 16th place and one point above the relegation zone.
In May 2016, Mourinho signed a three-year deal as manager of Manchester United. In his first season in charge the club won the Community Shield, the League Cup and the UEFA Europa League.
The Red Devils finished second behind their city rivals in 2017/18 and lost the FA Cup final to Mourinho's former club, Chelsea.
