Jose Mourinho has been appointed as Tottenham’s new manager following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.
Former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United boss Mourinho has signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, announcing Mourinho’s arrival, said: “In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football.
“He has a wealth of experience, can inspire teams and is a great tactician. He has won honours at every club he has coached.
“We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”
Mourinho 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.”
The Portuguese has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United in December 2018.
Pochettino was sacked five months after leading Spurs to the Champions League final, where they were beaten by Liverpool.
Mourinho will take over the club in 14th place in the Premier League table and without a win from their last five top-flight games.
Tottenham face West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.
