So, the Special One is back.
Jose Mourinho was appointed as Tottenham’s manager on Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked.
And he is set for a baptism of fire at the north London club, with clashes against his former clubs Chelsea and Manchester United to come before Christmas.
Mourinho will return to Old Trafford a year after being sacked by the club
Mourinho’s reign will start in the Premier League on Saturday at West Ham, with
talkSPORT bringing you live and exclusive commentary of the 12:30pm kick-off.
Then just three days later he will be introduced to the Spurs crowd for the first time when the club host Olympiakos in the Champions League.
Spurs will also be at home on Saturday, November 30, with Bournemouth the visitors.
And just two weeks into the job – on Wednesday, December 4 – Mourinho will be back at Old Trafford with his new club 12 months after being sacked by Manchester United.
The 56-year-old led United to League Cup and Europa League titles after replacing Louis van Gaal in May 2016.
But his style of play failed to win over the fans and, having spent £400m on new players, he was axed in December 2018 with the club sitting 19 points behind then Premier League leaders Liverpool.
After facing his former club, Mourinho then leads Tottenham into battle against Burnley before a visit to Bayern Munich, the club’s final Champions League group game.
Tottenham then visit Wolves on December 15 before Mourinho comes up against another of his clubs, Chelsea.
Mourinho managed the Blues across two spells, winning three Premier League titles, and is the most successful manager in their history.

Mourinho takes over a Tottenham side sitting 14th in the Premier League table.
While he did little to endear himself to the Man United faithful and has been sacked from his last three jobs, he boasts one of the best records of success of any manager in world football.
Mourinho has won eight league titles across Europe, has lifted both the Champions League and Europa League twice and won cup competitions in England, Italy, Spain and Portugal.
His predecessor at Tottenham, Pochettino, was hugely popular at the north London club but never captured any silverware during his five-and-a-half year reign.
Mourinho will now set about turning Tottenham into trophy winners.
