The football world was shocked by the appointment of Jose Mourinho as Tottenham Hotspur manager on Wednesday morning and Betfair are offering a host of specials on the Portuguese boss.
Tottenham Hotspur’s poor form since the turn of the year led to Mauricio Pochettino’s surprise sacking from the club on Tuesday night and less than 12 hours later, fans were shocked again to find that former Chelsea and Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho had been appointed as his successor in North London.
Mourinho is box office material and will undoubtedly create plenty of drama, not only in the Premier League but in the Amazon Prime documentary that is centred on the club’s fortunes this season. Betfair are offering a host of intriguing specials as the eyes of the football world focus in on the Lilywhites to see how Mourinho fares in his latest conquest.
There are offers on players to be signed by the Portuguese boss – including some fairly realistic ones such as Gareth Bale, a player he has been a long-term admirer of, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is keen on a return to Europe following his time with LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer.
There are also some not very realistic transfer specials – you can get 50/1 on Mourinho to reunite with Paul Pogba, a player he constantly clashed with during his time as head coach at Manchester United.
If you fancy Spurs to turn their season around and finish in those coveted top four spots you can get odds of 11/4 and there are some intriguing prices if you fancy Mourinho to haunt his former clubs – you can get 9/2 on Spurs to do the double over United in the Premier League and 11/2 on them to do the double over Chelsea.
Whatever happens, it’s going to be fun to watch!
