Jose Mourinho was appointed as Spurs boss on Wednesday, following Mauricio Pochettino’s sack on Tuesday night.

Premier legend Alan Shearer doesn’t seem too impressed with the sack of Pochettino after the work he has done for Spurs and thinks that Mourinho has a huge boot to fill.

“They say nothing should surprise you in football but it has moved really quickly,” Shearer told the BBC.

“I was suprised by Pochettino’s sacking, you would think what he has achived in the five years – turning them into regular top-four contenders and visitors to the knock-out stages of the Champions League – that he would have something in the bank, that he would be given a few months to turn things around.

“Mourinho has been waiting for a big job and now has got one. He has big boots to fill to try and better what Pochettino has done.

“The Argentine may not have won a trophy by the way that Pochettinho delivered his football and that Champions League final was very special and will live with Spurs fans for many years.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho has gushed at the new Tottenham stadium and was in awe at the facilities at his new club, hailing them as the best in Europe.

He told the official Tottenham website: “When you say, ‘beautiful stadium’, you are too humble. You have to say, ‘best stadium in the world’. I think that is the reality. The training ground is second to none. It probably can only be compared with some American Football training grounds. You cannot compare with European football at any level – and I’ve been in the majority of the best places.

“It’s impossible to compare anything [to] the stadium. I think it’s something that has to make us all very, very proud. But not just that, the conditions you have to work in are absolutely amazing.”
