Jose Mourinho has said he will look to ignite some “passion” and “happiness” to Tottenham Hotspur after being unveiled as the club’s new manager on Thursday.

The 56-year-old “chosen one” was appointed on Wednesday following the surprise sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss praised the quality of the Spurs training ground and the array of talent the club had at their disposal.

Mourinho added: “Happiness-wise I am convinced my choice was a great one.

“The club is huge. I know that I have potentially a great job in my hands.”

Mourinho put pen to paper securing him as Tottenham manager until the 2023, with a hefty £8 million annual salary.

He takes over a struggling Spurs side that are winless in their last five Premier League matches and are 14th in the table, 20 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

Speaking about the new squad that Mourinho has inherited, he praised the board for keeping the outstanding players at the club and also added he will look forward to working with the youngsters and future stars of Spurs.

“The potential of the club is huge, the potential of the players is great I am so happy that was one of the reasons I came because of the vision that [club chaiman] Daniel Levy put in front of me about the club and the quality of the players and the squad.

“I know potentially I have a great job in my hands. I don’t need players I just need time.”

Spurs have not only had a change of head coach but hierarchy also revealed a revamp in their background staff, including well known Lille duo Joao Sacramento and Nuno Santos.
