Former Inter coach Jose Mourinho says he is “excited” to get started after being confirmed as the new Tottenham Hotspur manager.
Tottenham announced last night that they had axed Mauricio Pochettino, only six months after guiding the club to its first-ever Champions League Final last season.
Max Allegri and Carlo Ancelotti were both linked with the role, but it soon became apparent that all tracks led to Mourinho.
“I am excited to be joining a club with such great heritage and such passionate supporters,” the 53-year-old told Spurs’ official website.
“The quality both in the squad and in the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”
The Portuguese has already won silverware in England with Chelsea and Manchester United.
However, his biggest achievement came at Inter, whom he masterminded to a historic Treble in 2010.
