Luis Campos open to linking up with Jose Mourinho at Spurs – Sky Sports

A wave of change in north London

Lille sporting director Luis Campos is reportedly open to joining up with Jose Mourinho at Tottenham, after he was confirmed as their new manager.

Mourinho was named the new Spurs boss on Wednesday after talks overnight.

The Portuguese manager signed a four-year deal, and will be looking to move Spurs up the table immediately.

After a poor start to the season with Mauricio Pochettino in charge, Tottenham are currently sat 14th in the Premier League.

It certainly won’t be an easy task for Mourinho, either, with reports suggesting that the new boss actually has no money to spend in January.

According to the Guardian, Jose has already been informed that there will be no spending, due to stadium repayments and other factors.

However, a friend of the Portuguese tactician could soon come in to help Spurs transition to the Mourinho age.

The Tottenham dream team

According to Sky Sports, Lille sporting director Luis Campos is open to joining Mourinho at Tottenham.

The pair seem to have a close personal relationship, and Mourinho has been spotted at several Lille games during his time away from management.

According to Sky’s report: ‘Luis Campos would be open to joining Tottenham in a sporting director role to work with Jose Mourinho, Sky Sports News understands.’

It had previously been reported elsewhere that Jose Mourinho was hoping to convince Campos over a move to north London.

Sky go on to explain that Rebecca Caplehorn is currently working as the sporting director at Spurs, while Steve Hitchen is chief scout, and Daniel Levy plays a big role in transfers, too.

Campos, though, has an illustrious track record, unearthing some huge talents in recent years.

Campos oversaw the signings of Kylian Mbappe, James Rodriguez, Anthony Martial, Fabinho, Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy at Monaco.

He also bought and sold both Nicolas Pepe and Rafael Leao for big fees at Lille.
