Jose in?

As one door closes, another one opens. And so the rumours of who would come in began circulating. Some were more, shall we say, realistic than others.

If you’ve just woken up… Spurs have already got a new manager… it’s Jose Mourinho.

‘New manager. New era. New beginnings.’

The man who, lest we forget, has won three Premier League titles (three: respect, respect, respect) is in the hot seat. There’s a definite difference of opinion on whether this is a good or a bad thing.

Some are not too impressed:

Michael Cox


Yes Mourinho wins trophies, but look at his last four jobs (Inter, Real, Chelsea, Man Utd) and the level of success has decreased each time, while the shambles he’s left behind has increased each time. That’s not a promising pattern.

Can’t think of a worse appointment. I detest the man and his brand of football. A disaster in the transfer market. He will bankrupt the club. Dark, dark times at my beloved Spurs. #MourinhoOut

Others are much more positive!

Pochettino taught us to dare, over to Mourinho to teach us to do.
Whether you don't like his style of play or his character as a person, you can't deny that this is a massive statement. Jose is a WINNER.
The Premier League needed Jose Mourinho to return, and he’s back.

How’s it going to go? We’re not sure. One thing we can be sure of: it won’t be dull.
