The Champions League has started the parties of turn of eighth of final, and already has said goodbye to the Tottenham of José Mourinho. The crossing had complicated a lot for the 'spurs' after the victory of the RB Leipzig does some weeks, (0-1), but the visit to the Network Bull Sand certified the nightmare because the Germans are in fourth and the English have remained in the street of a so conclusive form like sonrojante (3-0).

The European competition has humanizado to the luso, to the one who many do not see already as 'The Special One'. Like this they baptised him in the Premier League during his first stage in Chelsea, marked by the successes in a so ambitious project like increasing. "One is not special if it does not win but I win", explained the one of Setúbal when still it seated in the bench of Stamford Bridge, although now in London mixes doubts and excuses.

In the capital do not trust his capacity and the statistics back the uncertainty, because never in his career had lived an equal series.

They won him the germanos in two occasions, also the 'blues' of Frank Lampard, the Wolverhampton, the Norwich and with the Burnley empató.

The registers have left to speak well of the ex of the Real Madrid, that dry in trophies and international victories. In the curriculum relucirán for ever the 25 titles that tieed up with Carry, Chelsea, the own Madrid and the Manchester United, but in Old Trafford braked with the Europe League of the season 2016-17. After her, it lost the Supercopa of Europe 2017 against the whites and the FA Cup 2018 against the londinenses.

His usual efficiency to double party has diluted , and six years ago that does not win a duel of eliminatory. It is necessary to retreat until 2014 to observe a 2-0 to the PSG, already in his second stage in the Bridge. Besides, Mourinho never had chained three consecutive defeats in Champions (Bayern of Munich in phase of groups and two against Leipzig), and in spite of his six semifinals in 13 participations in the tournament, carries already three editions without rebasar the border of eighth.

The shadow of Pochettino threatens to Mourinho

The worst for Mourinho is that it could remain without the opportunity of resarcirse, and the shadow of Mauritius Pochettino begins to threaten him. In the Premier the things do not go also as to think that it will reach the classification for the Champions, even if the Manchester City is sanctioned of definite form and the fifth also obtains note. The fans has gone back to give a touch of attention to Daniel Levy, and recommends him that it recover to the Argentinian because it considers that it is the only that it can fix this disaster. Perhaps now a more special technician that his substitute.
