Jose Mourinho's First Training Session At Spurs Is A Fascinating Watch
Seeing Jose Mourinho as Spurs manager is going to take some time to adjust to, especially for their fans, but the new boss seems to be adapting to his role pretty well already.
Despite the rumours it still came as a shock when Mauricio Pochettino was sacked on Tuesday night and replaced by Mourinho just 12 hours later.
With fans trying to get their heads round it the former Chelsea manager was already hard at work taking the first training session. It made for an interesting watch, especially with Jose's interactions with some of the star players.
My favourite bit of the full video from the first training session is Jose Mourinho shouting 'Danny Rose never moves' at the left-back during a rondo. It's true, he doesn't. https://t.co/RNWSMssCnu- Alasdair Gold (@AlasdairGold) November 20, 2019

Mourinho isn't always well known for his man management and is more obviously known for his fall outs with star names as things start to go wrong.
The 56-year-old does though create a core group of players who do usually follow his every order with Chelsea spine of Petr Cech, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba most famously fitting into the category.
Harry Kane, Eric Dier and perhaps especially Dele Alli all seem like Mourinho style players who the former Real Madrid boss is likely to get the best out of.
Life under Pochettino had soured for many of the Spurs players and they'll be hoping that the new manager can start to return them to their best.
Whilst the trio of English players aren't likely to leave in the near future it'll be interesting to see how the former Manchester United boss deals with Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen, all out of contract in the summer.
How will Mourinho fare at Spurs?
