Lille boss Christopher Galtier slams new Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho for poaching some of his backroom staff.

Lille boss Christopher Galtier has slammed new Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho for poaching some of his backroom staff.

The 56-year-old was appointed Spurs boss on Wednesday, replacing Mauricio Pochettino, and he has since added five new coaches to his backroom team, including two from the French side.

Highly-rated coach Joao Sacramento has been appointed as Mourinho's assistant, while Nuno Santos has arrived as the new goalkeeping coach at the North London club.

Galtier criticised the moves in an interview with RMC Sport, sarcastically saying: "It's really classy. Really classy to act like that."

The former Saint-Etienne coach was appointed Lille manager in December 2017 and he won the Ligue 1 Manager of the Year award last season after guiding the North French club to second place in the league behind Paris Saint-Germain.
