Some Tottenham Hotspur fans feel that the club went after the wrong man, by not appointing Massimiliano Allegri instead of Jose Mourinho.

The Guardian reported last night that Allegri was keen to take the Tottenham job, but quickly found out that Jose Mourinho was their first choice.

Mourinho was named as Tottenham’s manager this morning, with Spurs making a swift appointment following Mauricio Pochettino’s departure.


Mourinho’s arrival at Spurs certainly creates a lot of intrigue, but not every supporter of the North London club has backed the decision.

And there are some Tottenham fans who think that Allegri would have been a better choice.

Allegri has been out of work since leaving Juventus at the end of last season.

The 52-year-old boss won five Serie A titles during his time with Juve, and became renowned as one of the finest managers in world football during his time in Italy.
