He has won honours at every club he has coached.“We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”Tottenham fans give their thoughts on Pochettino’s sackingLADBROKES 1-2-FREE Simply predict Man City vs Chelsea, Rangers and Man Utd scores this coming weekend and win £100most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’NICE RONCristiano Ronaldo goes on family bike ride with partner Georgina Rodriguez & kidsHe arrives at the club with three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and three League Cups all under his belt from his time at Chelsea.Mourinho also lifted the EFL Cup and Europa League at Manchester United while winning the Champions League on two separate occasions with Porto and Inter Milan.It was revealed last month that Mourinho is keen to set history by becoming the first manager to lead three different clubs to the league title or major European trophies.2 Jose Mourinho has been appointed Tottenham managerCredit: PA:Press AssociationTottenham sack Mauricio Pochettino in shock axe after poor run of formlast_img read more
