Jose Mourinho to be named Tottenham Hotspur manager

Share

Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by Tottenham Hotspur and is now replaced by Jose Mourinho who has officially been unveiled as the new Spurs manager. I don't have a great experience of getting teams in mid-season, it is only the second time I have done it.

Liverpool's 3-1 defeat of United in December 2018 spelled the end of Mourinho's tenure at Old Trafford, and Klopp is thrilled to have his old rival back in the Premier League, though he has no doubt Pochettino will land another big job soon enough.

"I couldn't be happier and if I was not as happy as I am I wouldn't be here", Mourinho said in an interview with Spurs TV.

"So I look to our history and you see that the academy is always giving talents the first team need. Working with these players is what has attracted me", he added.

They won just three of their final 12 games in the Premier League last season, after having the chance to close the gap to the top two to just two points when they faced Burnley in February, and things didn't improve much this season.

It was soon revealed the next morning that Jose Mourinho would take charge with immediate effect.

"We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room", Levy said.

He was replaced nearly 24 hours later with Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho, who has been unemployed since being sacked by EPL rivals Manchester United last season.

The Hammers have been on a bad run of results in the league, losing four of their six games and drawing the other two.

Jose Mourinho "couldn't be happier" with his inheritance from Mauricio Pochettino as he prepares to lead Tottenham at "the best stadium in the world".

He said: "This club will be always his home".

"It's about the respect people have for you because you were a professional and a good person and you create empathies".

"I realised that during my career, I made mistakes and I'm not going to make the same mistakes".
