Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a potential blow in the latest stage of their backroom staff reshuffle.

Mauricio Pochettino was relieved of his duties as manager of the Champions League finalists on Tuesday and left the club along with assistant manager Jesus Perez, goalkeeping coach Tony Jiminez and first team coach Miguel D’Agostino (Express).

Daniel Levy wasted no time in replacing Pochettino with Jose Mourinho less than twenty four hours later.

Mourinho has already brought in Lille coaches Joao Sacramento and Nuno Santos to bolster his backroom staff (talkSPORT) along with Ricardo Formosinho and Giovanni Cerra.

Sacramento takes up the role of assistant coach while Santos takes over as goalkeeping coach.

Formosinho will operate a the club’s technical scout with Cerra working as a technical analyst, a role he has previously held at Man United.

However, Spurs appear to have more difficulty in any potential interest sporting director Luis Campos after Lille president Gerard Lopez insisted that he still has work to do in Ligue 1.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Lopez said: “Luis and I, we are colleagues but above all friends, and we are working on a project together with a huge trajectory.

“And the project is far from finished. He will not leave the club. He stays with us.”
