Jose Mourinho and penalty shootout

 

JOSE MOURINHO refused to watch as Tottenham lost to Norwich on penalties – and extended his shocking record in shootouts.

The Special One couldn’t bear the pressure as his side were dumped out of the FA Cup at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Gedson Fernandes missed the vital kick as Premier League basement-boys Norwich reached the quarter-finals.

And throughout the shootout, Mourinho was spotted hunched in his chair in the dugout, while the players and his backroom staff huddled together on the pitch.

It’s easy to see why the Special One decided to hide away from the drama, too.

After all, he has NEVER won a penalty shootout in England – having now lost seven during his time at Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Mourinho lost FIVE shootouts during his two stints at Stamford Bridge.

A League Cup defeat to Charlton in 2005-06 kickstarted the dreadful run, before losing to Liverpool in the Champions League a season later.

Chelsea lost to Man Utd from 12 yards in the Community Shield later that year.

In his second stint in West London, Mourinho lost the Super Cup against Bayern Munich from the spot.

And he lost to Stoke in the League Cup in 2015-16, shortly before his sacking.
