Andre Villas-Boas says he is honoured to have become Tottenham boss on a three-year contract and is confident the team can be successful.
Villas-Boas has returned to English football just four months on from his Chelsea sacking after being appointed by Spurs to succeed Harry Redknapp.
He is looking forward to the challenge of trying to build on Redknapp's good work and is enthusiastic about coaching such a talented group of players.
Having spoken to chairman Daniel Levy about the club's ambitions for the future, he has no doubt that there are good times ahead for Tottenham.
"Tottenham Hotspur is a great club with a strong tradition and fantastic support, both at home and throughout the world," he told the club's official website.
"I feel privileged to be its coach. For me, this is one of the most exciting coaching positions in the Premier League.
"I have had several discussions with the chairman and the board and I share their vision for the future progress of the club.
"This is a squad any coach would love to work with and together I believe we can bring success in the seasons ahead."
Levy is also thrilled to have Villas-Boas on board and believes the 34-year-old is the ideal man to keep Tottenham playing stylish football, whilst also developing younger players.
"I am delighted that Andre has agreed to become our new head coach," said Levy. "He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style.
"Andre shares our long-term ambitions and ethos of developing players and nurturing young talent, and he will be able to do so now at a new world class training centre."
Levy added: "We are constantly looking to move the club forward.
"It is important that we now look to develop the potential within the squads at all levels, whilst strengthening the first team in the summer in key positions with players who will become part of the future success of the club."
