Jose Mourinho has been appointed Tottenham manager, succeeding Mauricio Pochettino who was sacked yesterday.

Former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Mourinho has signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season.

"The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me," said the 56-year-old Portuguese.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: "In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football."

Tottenham reached the Champions League final last season under Pochettino but lost to Liverpool.

The Argentine, who was appointed in May 2014, failed to win a trophy in his time in charge of the north London club with Spurs' last silverware being the League Cup in 2008.
