Jose Mourinho has ended his hiatus from the dugout after he was appointed as the Tottenham Hotspur manager earlier on Wednesday.
The Portuguese tactician was named the new Spurs manager via an official statement from the club on Wednesday night.
He had been the favourite to take the job after Mauricio Pochettino was booted out of the managerial post at the club.
Mauricio Pochettino paid the price for a poor start to the current league season as he won just three games from 12 league outings with Spurs languishing in 14th position on the table.

After leading the North Londoners to the Champions League final at the end of last season, Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur were beaten by eventual champions Liverpool in that final.
His sack came five months after the historic achievement of taking Spurs to the Champions League final for the first time.
According to journalist IndyKaila, Tottenham Hotspur will pay Jose Mourinho a whopping £15m on a yearly basis and he has been given a three-and-a-half-year contract that runs until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Ex-Chelsea and Manchester United manager Mourinho will earn double of the £7.5m paid to Mauricio Pochettino while he was the Spurs manager.
