Tottenham Hotspur confirmed on Wednesday morning that Jose Mourinho has been appointed as the club’s new manager.
Spurs announced on Tuesday evening that Pochettino had been relieved of his duties at the club after overseeing a poor start to the campaign.
Indeed, the capital side are down in 14th spot in the Premier League table having only won three of their 12 league fixtures this season.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano said on Tuesday night that Mourinho – out of work since being sacked by Manchester United last December – was the favourite to arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the near future.
But it would be fair to say that a number of Spurs fans did not want the 56-year-old on hearing that news.
Mourinho was clearly not on the list of managers that the supporters wanted judging by their comments on social media, but they are going to have to get used to it.
A selection of the Twitter reaction is available to view below:
Ugh! Not good.

This is a poor choice. He is dull and defensive and his best years are behind him.
And he’s a Chelsea reject. What does Levy not understand?
