London: Jose Mourinho has been appointed as the new Tottenham head coach until the end of the 2023 season.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss replaces Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked on Tuesday.
Negotiations between Spurs and Mourinho – who had been out of work since leaving Old Trafford in December – intensified over the last few days and concluded in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
His first game will be at the London Stadium on Saturday as Spurs travel to take on West Ham in the Premier League.
Pochettino left Tottenham with the club 14th in the Premier League and having won just five matches all season.
Chairman Daniel Levy said he was “reluctant” to sack the Argentine, but explained the decision had to be made in the “club’s best interests”.
