Tottenham axe Mauricio Pochettino

He pumps money into the club, hires Jose Mourinho, and suddenly a new club is formed out of the framework of the old.

Pochettino, 47, was sacked on Tuesday, 19 November, after Tottenham picked up just three wins from their opening 12 games, were dumped out of the League Cup by lowly Colchester United and suffered an embarrassing 2-7 defeat at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Tottenham Hotspur has officially announced that Mauricio Pochettino is no longer the team coach.

"He has a wealth of experience", Levy said, "can inspire teams and is a great tactician". The club have confirmed the appointments of João Sacramento (assistant coach), Carlos Lalin (fitness coach), Nuno Santos (goalkeeper coach), Ricardo Formosinho (tactical analyst) and Giovanni Cerra (technical analyst). I have the greatest admiration for the way he dealt with hard times away from home while we were building the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity that brought us.

Pochettino joined the club back in 2014, managing them for five years.

"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. I always [spoke about] the magnificent work the club was doing".

If their decision making doesn't match Mourinho's take on the game, coach and player fall out.

Tottenham were beaten by Liverpool in the 2019 Champions League final by Liverpool and this season languish 14th in the Premier League which resulted in Mauricio Pochettino's sacking.

His first game will be at the London Stadium on Saturday as Spurs travel to take on West Ham in the Premier League.

Mourinho, never shy of speaking his mind, famously said "I am a special one" when he first arrived in the Premier League to manage Chelsea in 2004.

Levy also expressed his excitement in luring the two-time UEFA Champions League victor to the club.

Mourinho was dismissed by Manchester United in December 2018, midway through his third season at the club.

"Gaffer. I'll be forever thankful to you for helping me achieve my dreams", Kane wrote on his official Twitter account. "Good luck with finding a better replacement. ain't gonna happen".

Tottenham's players will certainly respect Mourinho's resume, which also includes league titles with Porto in Portugal, Inter Milan in Italy and Real Madrid in Spain.
