Jose Mourinho and four more humiliating returns to former clubs
Jose Mourinho’s return to Stamford Bridge was hyped up as “The Return” by Sky Sports last weekend, but it certainly wasn’t a happy one for the Portuguese.
His Manchester United side were comprehensively beaten by Antonio Conte’s Chelsea as the Red Devils continued their uninspiring form – losing 4-0.
The Special One received plaudits for preventing Liverpool’s attacking options any clear-cut goal-scoring opportunities six days previously, but Mourinho’s side deserved no credit for Sunday’s performance, producing a disgraceful defensive display.
But Mourinho can’t be the only manager to suffer such embarrassment at the hands of his former employers – in fact, we at Football FanCast reckon it’s more common than most people would think.
With that in mind, we’ve taken a look at four of the most embarrassing returns to old stomping grounds managers have endured in recent years, spanning the Premier League and yonder.
