Tottenham Hotspur didn’t hang around to fill the boots of Mauricio Pochettino after sacking him yesterday evening, following five and a half years of service in North London.

Pochettino managed to develop Spurs from a top-four chasing side into Champions League regulars and finalists on a limited budget over the past half-decade.

However, these achievements apparently did not excuse a poor start to the 2019/20 season, with just three wins in the past 12 Premier League matches.

Jose Mourinho has already been named as the new official Spurs manager, signing a deal until 2022/23.

The Special One will also assemble his own team in North London, with Pochettino’s men moving out with him, including Jesus Perez and Toni Jiminez.

Mourinho has reportedly already named his assistant manager for his time at Spurs, Lille coach Jaoa Sacramento.

The Telegraph report that this is just the start of a wide-ranging shake-up in the Tottenham Hotspur backroom team.
