Jose Mourinho has hired Joao Sacramento as assistant manager after being announced as Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement at Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Manchester United manager has already begun the process of assembling a new backroom team after Pochettino’s assistants joined him in departing the club.
During his time in the country, Sacramento worked under Gary Speed and Chris Coleman as a performance analyst intern at the Welsh FA.
This provided the starting point for his career; a year later in April 2014, he was hired as a technical assistant at Monaco, where he worked alongside Leonardo Jardim.
In January 2017, he became the assistant manager at Lille under Christophe Galtier.
The Portuguese has long been Mourinho’s second-hand man, stretching back to their early coaching days at Barcelona.
Over the course of their careers, the two men have joined forces at Porto, Chelsea (twice), Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Man Utd.
But it doesn’t look like Faria will be joining Mourinho this time around.
Lille’s goalkeeping coach, Nuno Santos, has also been given the green light by the Ligue 1 club to join up with Mourinho at Spurs.
Meanwhile, The Daily Telegraph says that Carlos Lalin will become Mourinho’s fitness trainer while Giovanni Cerra and Ricardo Formoshino are set to join as an analyst and scout respectively.
