Jose Mourinho has been named as the new Head Coach at Tottenham Hotspur. The Portuguese boss will replace Mauricio Pochettino whose sacking was announced by the club on Tuesday evening.

Mourinho had recently been linked with replacing Unai Emery at Arsenal but the 56-year-old has now taken the reins with their north London rivals.

These Arsenal fans have taken to social media to share their thoughts and it appears they’re not concerned by Mourinho joining Tottenham Hotspur, in fact, quite the opposite.

 What do we think?

Given the stories we’ve heard regarding Daniel Levy and the way he does business, it’s difficult to see how a relationship with himself and somebody as outspoken as Mourinho could ever work. The Portuguese coach will almost certainly demand transfer funds and, based on previous evidence, is unlikely to keep quiet if Levy fails to back him, therefore, this new alliance could prove to be a ticking time-bomb.

Mourinho’s trophy record speaks for himself and even during his time at Manchester United, where he received untold criticism, he was still able to guide them to a second-place finish and win a League Cup and the Europa League.

Perhaps this appointment signifies a shift in the ambitions of the club, having built the stadium and seemingly established themselves as one of the ‘big six’ they are now ready to push on to the next level. With the 56-year-old now at the helm, trophies are likely to follow but as we’ve seen by the destruction he’s left in his wake following his second stint at Chelsea and time in Manchester, there will likely also be a cost.
