Mourinho claimed three league titles during his two stints with Chelsea, but faced plenty of criticism after his unsuccessful spell as Manchester United manager.
The Portuguese boss spent almost £400million on building his squad, but only had one League Cup and a Europa League trophy to show for it.
Now, Mourinho is turning around the fortunes of Spurs after Mauricio Pochettino’s departure from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last November.
Pochettino’s side had gone stale, and the two-time Champions League-winning manager has injected a new lease of life into the north London club, who after beating Burnley 1-0 on Monday night have now shot up to fifth place in the league.
With Virgil van Dijk set to be sidelined for the majority of the season with a serious knee injury and Manchester City struggling for form, the title race has been blown wide open, and if Jurgen Klopp’s can’t retain their trophy, Liverpool legend Carragher would like to see Mourinho win the league again.
‘I obviously want Liverpool to win the league, but if someone else were to win it, I’d love to see Jose Mourinho win again,’ Carragher told Sky Sport.
‘Mourinho has had so much thrown at him recently; accusations that he’s yesterday’s man, his football is from a different era. I’d love to see him win again and almost stick two fingers up at pundits and the press, whoever.
‘It would be a good story for Mourinho to do that again. After what he’s achieved in his career, he still gets a lot of criticism because he rubs people up the wrong way at different times, but it would be nice to see him win again in a different way.’
‘When Jose came in things were a bit stop-start last season, and don’t think for one minute that anyone involved with Tottenham – from Daniel Levy, to Jose Mourinho and his players – thought about challenging for the title this season, it would have all been about getting into the top four.
‘But because this season has been so strange – Liverpool losing Virgil van Dijk, Manchester City not looking right and having already dropped eight points – if there is ever going to be a chance when someone does do something, this will be the season.’
