yes and no - his reputation comes from his time alongside mourinho i believe, as much as his 1 year/3 trophies at porto.
it's a bold move, and one that could quite easily backfire. i thought the same when he went to chelsea (paid a LOT of money to get him if i remember correctly). i'm looking forward to it, because there are far less egos at spurs than chelsea, and some good promising players. in addition, if he continues the high line of defence, provided our players are fit (ha!), then we have a bit more pace at the back than john terry to play that way.
think there will be a fair few ins and outs transfer-wise too.
