‘Spurs will finally win a trophy now’: Loads of Man Utd fans react as José Mourinho becomes Tottenham manager

Tottenham Hotspur have announced the appointment of José Mourinho as their new manager, following the sacking on Tuesday of Mauricio Pochettino.

We’ve already asked the big question. What should Manchester United do now considering Pochettino was strongly linked with the job at Old Trafford a year ago? Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not appear as good a manager as the Argentine but his United side has seen an upturn in results lately and getting rid of a club legend in these circumstances would be disrespectful. 

Spurs have gone for ex-United boss Mourinho, who has a long list of previous clubs including FC Porto, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

“I am exciting to be joining a club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters,” said Mourinho in a statement released by Spurs. “The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”

Daniel Levy, the chairman of the club, said: “In José we have one of the most successful managers in football. He has a wealth of experience, can inspire teams and is a great tactician. He has won honours at every club he has coached. We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”

United fans have been reacting to the news which sees their former manager takeover at White Hart Lane.

This is the same man who was sacked by United last December following a poor run of results and has been out of work since, unless you count the couple of gigs he did for Sky Sports this season.

Pochettino lasted five-and-a-half years at Spurs and last season was their peak. He didn’t get enough time to turn things around but there are plenty of reports linking him to bigger jobs already.
