Mourinho replaces Pochettino at Tottenham

Mourinho replaces Pochettino at Tottenham

And Pochettino, who was linked with the Manchester United job earlier this year, has paid the price.

"I am excited to be joining a club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters", Mourinho said.

Knowing Daniel Levy like I do, and the way the Spurs chairman likes to stay in touch with his squad, I wonder if he sensed the players were losing faith. He also has experience of the Premier League through two spells with Chelsea, where he won the title three times.

"In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football".

He tweeted: "I said a few weeks ago I felt this project had ran its course, I thought there would be a change at the end of the season with either the manager or players changing".

Tottenham Hotspur have announced the appointment of Jose Mourinho as head coach of the club on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

That said, there's still plenty of talent in a side that reached the Champions League final last season and has finished top-four the past four seasons, including Harry Kane, Dele Alli and others. He has won honours at every club he has coached.

Mourinho, who also won the treble with Inter in 2010 and led Real Madrid to LaLiga glory in 2011-12, most notably clashed with United star Paul Pogba prior to his Old Trafford exit.

Mauricio Pochettino is no longer the coach of Tottenham.

Pochettino, a former Argentina defender, took over a Tottenham team that was outside the established elite in 2014 and created one of the most dynamic and exciting young teams in recent Premier League history, despite being unable to spend lots of money in the transfer market as the club prepared to move into a new stadium.

"It falls on the board to make the hard decisions - this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff - but we do so in the club's best interests. Pochettino has been a brilliant manager for Spurs & will be back in the PL sooner rather than later!".
