Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy shocked the world of football when the club announced the decision to part ways with long-time coach Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday night. The next day, the chairman dropped another bomb when the North London club announced the appointment of a two-time UCL winning coach Jose Mourinho on a contract until 2023. In his first interview as coach of Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho took a dig at former employers Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho claimed that most of the times his 'former clubs' did not get the backing to field a lot of academy players in the past. Jose Mourinho said that he is lucky to be at Tottenham Hotspur, lauding the immense talent present within the current players in the senior squad. Jose Mourinho's first match in charge of the North London club will be against West Ham this weekend. Will the highly-rated Portuguese tactician be a success at Tottenham and guide them to their first trophy in the last decade or will he fail miserably?

“The main problem in my previous clubs is that you get into a system where the work that is below you is not good enough to produce these young players.”
