Jose Mourinho has been appointed Tottenham manager after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday. Former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Mourinho has signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season. “The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me,” said the 56-year-old Portuguese. “Working with these players is what has attracted me.”
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: “In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football.” Tottenham reached the Champions League final last season under Pochettino, but lost 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid. The Argentine, who was appointed in May 2014, did not win a trophy in his time in charge of the north London club, with Spurs’ last silverware being the League Cup in 2008.
Levy added: “He [Mourinho] 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.”
