Tottenham hire Joao Sacramento
After appointing Jose Mourinho as their manager, Tottenham now need to rebuild their backroom staff.
When Mauricio Pochettino left Spurs on Tuesday, his right-hand men also walked out of the club.
Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Antonio Jimenez have all parted company with Spurs this week.
Former Spurs assistant manager Jesus Perez has posted the following goodbye message on social media.

Who is Joao Sacramento?
A Portuguese national, Joao Sacramento has joined Tottenham from Lille. The Telegraph report:
Sacramento has joined Mourinho’s new Spurs staff from Lille, where he held the same position under Christophe Galtier.
The Portuguese was previously a technical assistant under Leonardo Jardim at Monaco, before moving to Lille in January 2017.
It’s unclear if Tottenham had to compensate Lille for pinching Sacramento.
A copy of Sacramento’s full CV, as posted on his LinkedIn page, is below.
Who else have Spurs appointed to work with Mourinho?
The Telegraph also reveal three more appointments to the Spurs backroom staff:
Carlos Lalin will become Mourinho’s fitness trainer at Tottenham while Giovanni Cerra is joining the analysis team and Ricardo Formoshino is joining the club as a scout.

Will Rui Faria join Tottenham?
Having previously been Mourinho’s lieutenant at Chelsea and Man United, Rui Faria isn’t joining Tottenham.
That’s because he’s currently the manager of Qatari club Al-Duhail SC.
Confusion over Silvino Louro
Goalkeeper coach Silvino Louro worked alongside Mourinho at Man United.
Will Silvino Louro be joining Spurs?
The Telegraph say ‘no’, reporting Silvino Louro “is not expected to be part of Tottenham’s new-look backroom team.”
However, the Independent challenge that claim, announcing “Silvino Louro is highly likely to join (Mourinho) once again at Spurs.”
