Jose Mourinho has been appointed new Tottenham Hotspur manager after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked on Tuesday.

Mourinho, former Chelsea and Manchester United boss, signed a contract that will last until 2022/2023 season.

“The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.” Mourinho said after his appointment.

Pochettino, who was appointed in May 2014, led Tottenham to Champions League final last season but lost to Liverpool. The Spurs are currently 14th on English Premier League after having a run of winless matches.

Mourinho, on the other hand, had been without a job since leaving Old Trafford in December 2018.

The Portuguese won three Premier League titles – in 2005, 2006 and 2015 – as well as one FA Cup in two spells at Chelsea.

He also led Manchester United to win Europa League and Carabao Cup in 2017 before he was sacked in 2018.

“In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football.” Said Spurs Chairman, Daniel Levy.

“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.”

Inter Milan, under Mourinho, won a league cup and were in Champions League in 2010. He was named FIFA coach of the year after he led Real Madrid to win La Liga in 2012.
