Newly-appointed Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has praised former manager Mauricio Pochettino for his efforts at the club.
The former Chelsea manager was appointed as the Argentine's replacement less than 12 hours after he was sacked by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy for their poor fortunes in the Premier League so far this campaign.
