Mourinho achieves incredible milestone

UEFA Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho achieved a unique milestone on Thursday when he recorded his 100th win as a manager in European competitions.

Spurs travelled to Bulgaria for the club's UEFA Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round clash against Lokomotiv Plovdiv and came away with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory to ensure their progression in the competition.

The Premier League outfit were made to sweat after Georgi Minchev gave the hosts a shock lead in the 71st minute, with Spurs only finding a way back into the encounter after Plovdiv had two players sent off moments later.
