Tottenham Hotspur confirmed the appointment of Jose Mourinho as their new manager on Wednesday morning, with the Portuguese signing a contract until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Spurs sacked Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday night following a largely disastrous 2019/20 campaign to date which has seen them win just three of their 12 Premier League matches, as well as being thrashed 7-1 at home by Bayern Munich and being knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two side Colchester United.
His 56-year-old replacement has been out of work for almost a year himself having been sacked by Manchester United in December 2018, and he will be keen to make a name for himself in the Premier League again following a disappointing end to his spell at Old Trafford.
Mourinho arrives at Tottenham with three Premier League titles – all with Chelsea – under his belt, and Daniel Levy will surely be hoping that he has the quality and experience to deliver their first one during the duration of his stay.

The former Real Madrid manager certainly seems ready to go, as you can see from his first words since being appointed below.
Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “I am excited to be joining a Club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters. The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”
