The majority of voters insist the Portuguese has never deserved to lose the iconic label he bestowed upon himself on arrival at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2004
Mourinho's men defeated the Ligue 1 champions 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit and advance to the semi-finals of the competition on away goals.
In the build-up to the game Chelsea's stuttering form had seen their manager questioned , particularly after the failure and acrimony which characterised his final season at Real Madrid.
But 57.7 per cent of the readers who voted in our poll insist that Mourinho has never deserved to lose the 'Special One' tag he bestowed upon himself on arrival at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2004.
Another 21.4% of voting readers maintain that Tuesday's result does not redeem the Portuguese's failings in recent years, while 20.9% believe that it does.
