MAURICIO POCHETTINO has left Tottenham Hotspur after five years with the North London club. And now former Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is tipped to take over in the Spurs dugout from the much-loved Pochettino .

Love him or hate him, Mourinho knows how to win. Since making a name for himself at Portuguese powerhouses Porto, the maligned manager has won 25 trophies.

A serial champion with Porto, Chelsea, Inter and Real Madrid, Mourinho's haul includes a treble as Nerazzurri boss, a pair of Champions League crowns and much more.

At home in London, Mourinho – who also led United to Europa League, EFL Cup and Community Shield glory – now has the chance to become the first manager to win major trophies at three different English clubs.

 

EXPERIENCE

After a brief and uneventful playing career, Mourinho has amassed 19 years of managerial experience – establishing himself as one of the most successful in his field.

His early steps into management via Benfica and Uniao de Leiria led to his first big gig at Porto before being headhunted by Chelsea, Inter, Madrid and United.

DEFENSIVE STABILITY

Pundits and fans have loved to poke fun at Mourinho's tactics in recent seasons – highlighting his defensive approach, with references to parking the bus.

But Mourinho's philosophy has proven successful. A solid defensive core – John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho at Chelsea, Inter's Lucio and Walter Samuel or Sergio Ramos and Pepe in Madrid – has yielded silverware with three of the biggest clubs in the world.

Chelsea's 2004-05 triumph was based on an almost impenetrable defence, which only conceded 15 goals in 38 Premier League games and tasted defeat just once. The following season, the Blues only shipped 22. At Inter, Mourinho's side conceded a league-low 34 goals in 2009-10, while his 2011-12 Madrid team showed they could mix style with substance by scoring 121 goals and allowing 32 as Los Blancos ended Barca's LaLiga dominance.

Expect Mourinho to get the best out of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez. Not to mention a defensive screen, including the likes of Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Winks, following that Champions League humbling to Bayern Munich.

POINT TO PROVE

A move to Tottenham would come at a decisive moment for Mourinho. Doubts over his ability to adapt and keep up with the times have emerged.

Much was made about Mourinho at United, where he struggled to get the best out of Paul Pogba amid a falling out and reports of dressing-room unrest.

Mourinho was brought to The Theatre of Dreams to replace Louis van Gaal and restore the glory days, but fans became disillusioned with his brand of football – many ex-players and pundits criticised him for not following the United way – as Manchester City and Liverpool continued to entertain.

With the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura, Giovani Lo Celso and Christian Eriksen at his disposal, Mourinho could have the chance to show his critics he has evolved.

DRAMA & BAGGAGE

Whenever Mourinho is in town, expect plenty of entertainment and drama. The closing stages of his United reign included memorable outbursts.

From his 12-minute tirade, media clashes and player criticism, to his ongoing demands for reinforcements at United. Mourinho's spell with the Red Devils was eventful on and off the pitch.

It's also worth remembering Mourinho gouged the eye of the late Tito Vilanova during an ill-tempered Madrid-Barca clash in 2011.

The London club sacked Pochettino just five months after he led them in the Champions League final with the club 14th in the Premier League.

Tottenham present a lot of challenges – a club with a modest budget, a hands-on chairman with strong opinions, a long-term plan and doubts over a handful of players. Mourinho has always liked to spend, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

Managerial sackings are a regular occurrence these days, but for the most part the formula remains frustratingly prosaic. A poor run of results is followed by a dreaded vote of confidence, which tends to precede a statement being published on the club’s official website – complete with a picture of a corner flag – explaining that the coach in question has vacated his post.Occasionally, though, bosses are dispensed of for entirely different reasons or by entirely different methods. In this slideshow, we pick out the 26 maddest managerial sackings of all time.Illustration: Martin Bowyer
