Jose Mourinho has been confirmed as Tottenham’s new manager less than hours of sacking Mauricio Pochettino.
Commenting on the appointment, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has this to say
“In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football.
"He has a wealth of experience, can inspire teams and is a great tactician. He has won honors at every club he has coached. We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”
Speaking on his appointment, Jose said: “I am excited to be joining a Club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters. The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”
An official club statement read: “Jose is one of the world’s most accomplished managers having won 25 senior trophies.
“He is renowned for his strategic prowess and has managed FC Porto, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United.
“He has won a domestic title in a record four different countries (Portugal, England, Italy and Spain) and is one of only three managers to have won the Uefa Champions League twice with two clubs, FC Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010.
“He is also a three-time Premier League Champion with Chelsea (2005, 2006, 2015).”
The 56-year-old Portuguese won three Premier League titles over two spells in charge of Chelsea and returned to England to manage Manchester United in 2016.
His first match in charge will be the London derby away to West Ham on Saturday.
