Former Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho, has emerged favourite to become Tottenham Hotspur’s new manager following the sack of Mauricio Pochettino.
The Naija Weekly had reported on Tuesday night that Tottenham Hotspur sacked Pochettino as their manager.
The Argentine spent five years in charge of the North London side.
Pochettino led Spurs to top-four finishes in four of his five seasons in charge, as well as their first Champions League final in the 2018/19 campaign.
However, they have won just five matches this season and chairman Daniel Levy said a change had to be made in the “club’s best interests”.
According to Sky Sports, Mourinho, who was sacked by Man United last December, is a serious contender to replace Pochettino as Tottenham manager.
The newspaper reports that RB Leipzig manager, Julian Nagelsmann, is also among the list.
