Jose Mourinho’s era has now officially begun at Tottenham Hotspur as the Portuguese manager took charge of training for the first time today since being appointed Tottenham’s first-team coach earlier in the morning.

The 56-year-old has now given his first interview to the club as a Spurs manager. The former Chelsea and Manchester United gaffer was quite enthusiastic about the squad at his disposal and spoke of his desire to bring young players through.

He also lavished praise on the club’s new stadium and training facilities, while adding that he always believed the club had great potential to grow.
