Tottenham will benefit from an angry and frustrated Jose Mourinho who has a point to prove after his dismissal from Manchester United last year, according to Graeme Souness.
The ex Chelsea boss penned a three-and-a-half-year contract to become the new Tottenham coach on Wednesday, 11 months after he was sacked by the Red Devils.
Speaking recently on the appointment many have doomed to fail, Souness believes Mourinho is the perfect fit for Spurs because of his reputation of winning titles.
He added will even be inspired more now by his zeal to prove his critics wrong.
His words, “I think it was common sense [for Levy to sack Pochettino] and it was common sense again to go for the guy they have gone for,”
“Mauricio Pochettino had appeared to be a man who didn’t want to be at Spurs, which I find very strange.
“Jose Mourinho is a perfect fit for them.
“Spurs are genuinely a big football club and they need someone who can turn what is perceived to be attacking attractive football into a slightly more pragmatic approach that will put some silverware in the boardroom.
“He has won trophies wherever he’s been and I would expect him to do the same at Spurs.
Deep inside, he is an angry and frustrated man with the way it turned out for him at United, so I think Spurs will reap the benefit of that.
“Will they win the league this year? No. But they will be far more difficult to play against.
“He is walking into a job in our league with no surprises, he knows what’s ahead of him, he knows the players he is playing against and will have a real grasp of the players he is working with.”
