Tottenham have sacked Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday, and on Wednesday Jose Mourinho was announced to replace him as a Spurs head coach.

The north London club have endured a disappointing start to the season with winning just three out of their 12 Premier League fixtures, after reaching to the Champions League final last term.

After Pochettino, former Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho was appointed to replace him, and here are 5 reasons proving the Portuguese manager is the best man to manage Spurs.

  1. Winning Mentality

Mourinho, in his career as a manager, has won 25 major trophies and 11 of those have come in England, including 3 Premier League titles with Chelsea and UEFA Europa League with Manchester United.

Inter Milan under Mourinho’s management have endured a historic treble in the 2009/10 season winning Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League.

There is an art form to playing poorly and still winning, with confidence and flexibility playing a major part and Mourinho’s teams have both in abundance.

  1. Transfer Acumen

Mourinho has broken records in the transfer market with signing big names and in the summer of 2017, he became the first-ever manager to spend more than £1 billion in transfer fees.

He had some huge success with signing Wesley Sneijder, Samuel Eto’o and Diego Milito at Inter Milan, alike Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Manchester United and Ashley Cole, Didier Drogba and Diego Costa at Chelsea.

However, fans have mentioned Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez as just expensive flops at Old Trafford.
