Jose Mourinho appointed Spurs head coach

     Jose Mourinho has been named Tottenham head coach until the end of the 2023 season.

The Portuguese, 56, was appointed on Wednesday morning, following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday night.

Having decided it was time to act, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy drew up a shortlist which included Mourinho, RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann, former Juventus boss Max Allegri and PSG’s Thomas Tuchel.

Negotiations between Spurs and Mourinho – who had been out of work since he was sacked by United in December – intensified over the last few days and concluded in the early hours of Wednesday morning.


“I am excited to be joining a club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters,” said Mourinho.  “The

quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”

“I couldn’t be happier and look forward to the challenge,” he said.

It is his first job since being sacked by United in December 2018.

He takes over a Spurs side that are without a win in their past five games and have slipped to 14th in the Premier League, 20 points behind leaders Liverpool after just 12 matches.

On Wednesday Spurs announced several additions to their backroom staff including Lille coaches Joao Sacramento and Nuno Santos. They have been joined by fitness coach Carlos Lalin, tactical analyst Ricardo Formosinho and technical analyst Giovanni Cerra, all of whom have worked with Mourinho before.
