Tottenham Hotspur confirmed on Wednesday morning that they have appointed Jose Mourinho as their new Head Coach on a deal until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Spurs had only announced the departure of Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday night, but they have moved quickly and swiftly to bring in his appointment in the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager.
Mourinho won three Premier League titles with the former before being unable to add another to his collection during his time at Old Trafford, and he will surely be tasked with delivering his new club’s first since the competition inaugaration in 1992.
It certainly isn’t going to happen this season with the north London outfit lying in 14th position in the top flight standings having won just three of their opening 12 league matches of the campaign to date, which sees them trail leaders Liverpool by a whopping 20 points even though we are yet to reach December.
The 56-year-old needs to act quickly to turn things around at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and he gets his first chance to do so when they travel to arch-rivals West Ham United at the weekend, looking to record their first Premier League win on the road since January.
