Tottenham Hotspur has fired her manager Mauricio Pochettino after a poor run of form this season.
Totthenham has failed to get a win in her last five matches which left her sitting 14th place on the league standings.
In less than no time the club has found his replacement in person of former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho. He has been appointed new Tottenham Hotspur manager until the summer of 2023.
Mourinho has been without a job after being fired by the Red Devils almost a year ago after too many issues with players and the club chiefs.
Spurs, however, announced through their official website that the former United boss will be their next manager for the next three seasons.
“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,” the statement from Spurs’ official website read.
Mourinho was said to have told his close allies that he would rather join Spurs instead of staging a return to Real Madrid.
The two parties were said to have been in talks in the last few days but negotiations got intensified when it was sure Pochettino would be shown the exit doors.
Speaking on the new appointment, Spurs chief Daniel Levy described the Portuguese as a “tactician” who had the potential to do great things with the London club.
“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.” Levy said as quoted by the Spurs website.
Mourinho has won three Premier League titles during his reigns as Chelsea boss. He has also won two Champions League trophies with Porto and Inter Milan among several other titles.
Mourinho’s first assignment will be an away trip to a struggling West Ham United in a Premier League London derby.
