Jose Mourinho is perfect manager to take Tottenham Hotspur to the next level of their history as he can guarantee them a trophy.
Jose Mourinho was appointed as the new Tottenham Hotspur head coach on Wednesday to the surprise of many football lovers.
The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager took his first training at Tottenham yesterday after replacing Mauricio Pochettino who was sacked after five years in charge.
There have been mixed feelings on this new development at the North London club as some said Mourinho does not fit Spurs.
Well, one could argue that is the case if football is not one of the most lucrative businesses in the world.
Right time for Spurs to appoint a manager like Mourinho
Mauricio Pochettino was appointed as head coach of Tottenham Hotspur on May 27, 2014, after his success at Southampton.
Pochettino led the saints to their highest points tally since the Premier League started in 1992/93 finishing 8th in the table.
A feat that made chairman Daniel Levy sign him from Southampton.
Pochettino did a good job during his five-year stint at the club, bringing through academy players like Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and developing players like Dele Alli, etc.
During this period he helped Levy to justify his relatively modest wage structure as Tottenham spent the lowest on wages among the top 6 clubs in the 2018/19 season.
In the 2017/18 season, Tottenham made a world record profit of £113million, by then the club's valuations had risen to between £1.3–1.8 billion.
Note that Spurs were valued at around £80 million in 1998.
This financial growth Tottenham moving from White Hart Lane to their new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium which was opened in April.
In the course of all these and not having a huge budget to spend, Pochettino was able to stay in the top 6.
Tottenham finished third in 2015/16 Premier League season as they were close to winning the title only for them to draw against Chelsea to confirm Leicester City as champions.
In 2016/17, they finished second just behind eventual champions Chelsea with 86 points, their highest ever point since the Premier League started.
The Argentine coach-led Tottenham to the 2019 UEFA Champions League final, the first European cup final in the club's history. They lost 2-0 to eventual champions Liverpool in Madrid.
Spurs failed to recover from that final loss, as they struggled in the new season which led to the sacking of Pochettino.
The club is in good financial standing, with a state of the art stadium and training ground but lacked trophies.
It's only right to appoint a manager that has been proved to be trophy winner if you are sacking a coach like Pochettino since that was what he lacked.
And Jose Mourinho is the perfect man to lead Tottenham to the next level
No one can dispute the fact that Mourinho is a winner, the former Real Madrid manager has won 20 trophies across four Leagues.
Everything is all set up for Mourinho at Spurs and it seems like a deliberate appointment rather than a stop-gap.
Jose Mourinho lives in London, one of his struggles at Manchester United was the fact that he could not move his family to Manchester as they are settled in London.
Either the negotiations had been ongoing for a long time or everything was fast-tracked.
Because one can't explain how Spurs and Mourinho representatives agreed in a matter of hours.
But Daniel Levy would not have agreed to a four-year contract with Jose if he did not get some assurances, so let's stick to ongoing for a long time.
Also, Jose resumed training with the players the next day which is also making everything look like it was pre-meditated.
Spurs starting XI looks like a Mourinho team
We all know Mourinho favours strong tall players ahead of flair players as he builds his team to bully other teams.
And Spurs have a handful of them.
During his press conference earlier today, Jose Mourinho said he does not need new players.
"The best gift for me, I don't need players," he said. "I am happy with the ones I have.
"I just need more time with them. I know them well from playing against them, but you never know them well enough."
Taking a look at the current Tottenham squad, there are some players Mourinho could turn into beasts.
Harry Kane is one player he has always admired and we all know how good the England international is.
Players like Sissoko, Ndombele, Aurier, Eric Dier, Danny Rose, and Dele Alli could also be very better under Mourinho.
They are typical players who do not care about flair but give 100% when they are on the pitch.
Toby Alderweireld is also another player Jose rates highly, he tried to sign him for Manchester United last year.
But the United hierarchy stopped the Portuguese manager from signing the Belgium defender.
And forward Son will continue to improve, one of the most dedicated players in football, he has all the talent to be a great player under Jose.
Like I said earlier, everything is set up for Jose Mourinho to take Tottenham to the next level.
Tottenham are currently 14th on the Premier League table and are second behind leaders Bayern in the UEFA Champions League Group B Standings with 7 points.
They only need one win to book their place in the next round.
Jose Mourinho will be relishing this challenge and like he said earlier today, he has learned from his past mistakes.
"I realised I made mistakes," he said.
"I'm not going to make the same mistakes. I'll make new mistakes - but not the same."
Mourinho's first game in charge of Spurs is away at city rival West Ham on Saturday in the early kick-off of the Premier League weekend.
