Former Chelsea and Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has been named Tottenham new coach. This news was officially confirm by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levey on Wednesday who officially confirm the appointment of the Portuguese after the club parted ways with former coach Mauricio pochettino who led Tottenham to their first ever UEFA champions league final last season..
Tottenham under former coach Mauricio pochettino had endured a poor start to the premier league this season, having won only three of their last 12 games played this season and they are currently languishing on 14 in the premier league table with just 14 points from their last 12 games.
A lots were expected this season from the last season UEFA champions league finalist. After the final in which they lost to liverpool, Mauricio pochettino blamed the defeat on the management for failing to release money to purchase new players from the transfer market, and it can be recalled that last season, Tottenham was the only team not to sign in new players. He even threaten to quit the club if they fail to release money for signing of new players this season. The management then release money and in the just concluded summer transfer window they brought in new players, the likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon and others all came in during the transfer window. But still they have since failed to imitate the same form they had last season. Jose Mourinho was then seen as the right man to replace the sacked Mauricio pochettino. The former Manchester United manager signed a four years contract with the North Londoners on Wednesday.
Despite Mourinho short comings, he has been tipped by the club chairman to be successful at the club. Mourinho is a title winning manager having won three premier league titles over three spells in charge of Chelsea before returning to managed Manchester United in 2016. He was sacked last December by Manchester United and has since remain without a job. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levey announced the arrival of Mourinho on Wednesday and following his switch to Tottenham, Jose Mourinho is now the second highest paid manager in the world.
