Jose Mourinho will now be coaching Victor Wanyama's side Tottenham Hotspurs, hours after the club fired Mauricio Pochettino.
Wanyama and MacDonald Mariga now becomes the first soccer siblings to be trained by the same coach in different clubs.
Mourinho signed Mariga at the Italian side Inter Milan.
During the reign of Pochettino, Wanyama had been linked to various transfer rumours. His former club Celtic and club Brugge were longing for his service.
Mauricio Pochettino's departure comes at a crucial time when Victor Wanyama's fate is unknown at the London-based English Premier League side.
After the arrival of Jose Mourinho, will Victor Wanyama survive? Will he get playing time at Tottenham? will Wanyama gain his lost glory?
Considering that Mourinho likes playing more defensive type of game, will he make Wanyama great again?
The Harambee Stars skipper has been struggling to get regular time at Tottenham, just playing 23 minutes for the club after having a succession of injury with the stiff competition of Tanguay Ndombele and Harry winks.
Mourinho's tactics have been questioned in the latter years of his coaching career, given that he publicly criticises his own players.
He has never spent more than 3 years in any club.
