Jose Mourinho’s first Champions League game in charge of Tottenham Hotspur ended in a 4-2 victory, with his side coming from two goals down to defeat Greek side Olympiacos.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand reacted to the Spurs win with this funny tweet:

Dele Alli’s goal ensured Spurs halved the deficit heading into the break, while Serge Aurier and Harry Kane finished the job in the second-half, with the striker setting a Champions League record with his brace.

The Tottenham hitman became the fastest player ever to score 20 goals in the history of the elite European competition, reaching the milestone in just 24 games.

Kane surpassed Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero who took 26 games,

Former Tottenham striker and Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker was impressed with Kane’s heroics, reacting thus to the incredible record on Twitter:

Spurs have secured their place in the knockout rounds of the competition having picked up 10 points from five games in Group B, and will travel to Germany to face group leaders Bayern Munich in the last game of the stage in a fortnight.
