Its official Jose Mourinho is back in management as the boss of Tottenham Hotspur.

Only moments ago, Tottenham Hotspur announced that Jose Mourinho has been appointed their new manager.

In an official statement on the clubs official website, tottenhamhotspur.com, they confirmed his appointment.

The statement read:

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Jose Mourinho as Head Coach on a contract that runs until the end of the 2022/23 season.”

Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy 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 honors at every club he has coached. We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”

Mourinho himself has also commented:

He 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.”

Mauricio Pochettino was sacked less than 24 hours ago, which leads us to believe that Levy and Spurs already had Mourinho in the works.
