Spurs have never had (or at least spent) the transfer budget Mourinho would demand, and they're still paying for the stadium. Can't see a budget-restricted job would appeal to chequebook Jose.

Mourinho is your man! He’s looking forward to working with the team and is excited by the talent in the academy...this from a man who is notorious for not promoting academy players! Good luck.

That's not true though, he gave some of the better younger players a run at United.

No idea why you dumped Poch but think you've done ok getting it all done quick and I think Mourinho will be decent for you. He never really made the effort to settle in Manchester so it always felt like it was work, not love.

Probably the only job left to him tbh, but he'd be a terrible manager for you. He'd demand to spend big and he might do OK. Think they should look a little harder.

Pretty awful appointment and imagine Poch will regret not jumping ship while his credit rating was higher. Not going to get Man Utd now I wouldn't have thought.

It’s been true at most of his clubs, maybe he was forced into it at UTD if the Glazers wouldn’t spend. He was very reluctant at Chelsea and Real to promote from the academy.

Hopefully Spurs will challenge for some trophies under Mourinho but could be a lot of negative football ahead!

Can't imagine anyone giving JM a job after United, or RM, or Second Chelsea, I'm guessing within his three months he'll be giving his "sack me" interviews.

But yeh it's a classic case of why no manager at all should show any loyalty.
