He is taking over Tottenham Hotspur, as they rank 14th in the Premier League and haven’t won in their last five games. The north London club’s chairman praised Mourinho as one of the most successful managers in football.
“The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me,” Mourinho said. “Working with these players is what has attracted me.”
The 56-year-old has not been attached to any team since being sacked by Manchester United in December 2018.
He has turned down a number of jobs in China, Spain and Portugal since then.
