Champions League finalist Tottenham Hotspur has signed José Mourinho as new coach. This was announced by the club from the English Premier League. A day earlier, the Spurs had separated from coach Mauricio Pochettino. Tottenham had responded to the poor start to the season with only 14 points from twelve games.
The 56-year-old Mourinho gets a contract with Tottenham until the end of the season 2022/23. "I'm delighted to come to a club with such a big history and such passionate fans," the Portuguese said in a club statement. "In José we have one of the most successful coaches in football committed," said Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
Mourinho was last Manchester United manager, but had mid-December 2018 after the 1: 3 defeat against Liverpool FC go with coach Jürgen Klopp.
