​José Mourinho is the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur. That CANNOT be stressed enough. 

There is so much that can be said about this sudden chain of events, but sometimes, even words can't do a situation real justice. 

Everyone knows the expression 'a picture paints a thousand words', and well, the former blue, red - and just about every colour - boss was pictured on ​Spurs' official Twitter account holding aloft his new Spurs shirt. 

And it all suddenly felt very, very real. And weird. 


With Mark Morrison's 'Return of the Mack' blaring throughout the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, José Mourinho poses for the cameras with that charming grin and a suggestively raised eyebrow.

"Return of the Mou, (there it is), return of the Mou (oh my god)," he mutters under his breath, working the cameras with a cheeky wink.

That's what we'd like to think is happening, anyway. 

Considering this is Mourinho's fourth managerial debut in the English top flight thus far, we have become accustomed to the images revealing the smiley Portuguese manager at the helm of a lucky(ish) club. 

And as always, the 56-year-old is looking refreshed, cheery and ready to rumble against the Premier League big boys. 

The ​ex-Chelsea boss holds the Spurs jersey with pride, and there's a glint in his eye which screams 'look out Pep and Jurgen, José's back'.

12 months ago this image would have been considered only possible by the magic of photoshop, since Mourinho was in the Old Trafford dugout and Pochettino was leading the Lilywhites to one of the most dramatic Champions league runs in history.

Funny old game, football.


That wasn't the end of Mourinho's photoshoot however, as the former ​Inter coach was snapped in a sharp black suit, giving his best sultry, 007 pose for the camera. 

Mourinho may be ​Tottenham's very own James Bond for now, but how long will it be until he's Dr No Way José?

Whether it's good news or heartbreak for Spurs fans, it is going to be absolutely blockbuster entertainment - for the remainder of the season, at least. 

We await the run-down buzzcut Mourinho in a few months.
