Mauricio Pochettino who was in change of the Northen london club for five year was appointed in May 2014 and led Spurs to the Champions League final last season, where they lost to Liverpool.

The 47-year-old has had a difficult start to the ongoing season with Spurs dawdling at 14th place in the Premier League.

“We were extremely reluctant to make this change,” said Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

“It is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste. Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.”

The announcement comes less than a day after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked by the club following a poor start to the season.

Spurs currently sit 14th in the Premier League after just three wins from their first 12 league games, while they also suffered a 7-2 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Mourinho has been out of management since December 2018 when he was dismissed by Manchester United and the three-time Premier League winner is eager to get back into the game.

“I am excited to be joining a club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters,” Mourinho said in a club statement.

“The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy meanwhile stressed Mourinho’s track record of silverware made him an ideal choice.

“In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football,” Levy said.

“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.”

Tottenham Hotspur have appointed Jose Mourinho as the club’s new head coach on a three-year contract until the end of the 2022/23 season.

Spurs sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday following a miserable start to the campaign that has seen last season’s Champions League finalists slide down the Premier League table.

Tottenham sit 14th in England’s top flight after picking up just three wins from their opening 12 games and were eliminated from the League Cup in September by fourth-tier Colchester United.

Speaking on his appointment, Mourinho said: “I am excited to be joining a club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters. The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has been crowned UEFA Men’s Player of the Year for 2018-19, seeing off competition from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Van Dijk kept five clean sheets in 12 appearances as well as scoring two goals and contributing two assists as the Merseyside club lifted the trophy for a sixth time as he was awarded at the ceremony for the Champions League group stage draw on Thursday.

That victory in Madrid capped a fine campaign for the former Celtic and Southampton defender, who was also named PFA Players’ Player of the Season as well as Liverpool Players’ and Fans’ Player of the Season.

Van Dijk was also integral to the Netherlands’ run to the inaugural Nations League Finals in June, where they beat England 3-1 after extra-time in the last four before losing to Portugal in the final.

Liverpool also scooped two of the four positional awards, with Van Dijk named best defender ahead of team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold and new Juventus signing Matthijs de Ligt.

Alisson Becker won the goalkeeper award, beating Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris and Marc-Andre ter Stegen of Barcelona.

The Brazilian kept six clean sheets during Liverpool’s Champions League run, including in the final where he made eight saves in the Reds’ 2-0 win over Tottenham.

Barcelona star Messi beat rival Ronaldo and Liverpool’s Sadio Mane to the forward award, after scoring 12 goals in 10 Champions League appearances for the Catalan giants last season.

Frenkie de Jong claimed the midfielder award ahead of Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen and Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson. The Netherlands international played a key role in Ajax’s memorable run to the semi-finals, which included victories over Real Madrid and Juventus.  

His performances unsurprisingly saw him attract interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Barcelona ultimately winning the race for the 22-year-old in a £65 million ($81m) deal.

Burnley fan Scott Cunliffe was joint winner of the UEFA #EqualGame Award, which honours those who highlight diversity, inclusion and accessibility in football. Cunliffe ran to every single Burnley away match during the 2018/19 season, raising more than £54,000 for the club’s charities.

Borussia Dortmund were also honoured for their work in tackling tackling far-right extremism among their fanbase, challenging racism and adopting a clear policy on the humanitarian rights of refugees and asylum-seekers.

The first award of the evening went to Manchester United legend Eric Cantona, who collected the President’s Award from UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin to honour his illustrious playing career and charity work.
