Jose Mourinho appointed Totenham Hotspurs’ Head Coach

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed Jose Mourinho as their new manager, replacing Mauricio Pochettino. The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss has signed a deal until the end of the 2022/23 season with Spurs and will be in charge for the Premier League clash with West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday. A club statement read: We are delighted to announce the appointment of Jose Mourinho as Head Coach on a contract that runs until the end of the 2022/23 season.

Jose is one of the world’s most accomplished managers having won 25 senior trophies. He is renowned for his tactical 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).

Commenting on the appointment, Chairman Daniel Levy said: “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 honours 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 withthese players is what has attracted me.

Mourinho has been out of management for 11 months, having been sacked by United in December 2018.

While the Portuguese failed to turn United back into title challengers and has been axed from his last three jobs, he boasts one of the best records of any boss in world football, having won every major club honour in the game.

He has been working for Sky Sports on their Premier League coverage this season but is seeking a return to management and the Spurs job appeals to the 56-year-old.
