Paulo Fonseca enjoying holiday with wife, 30, before formally joining Spurs

Paulo Fonseca has been enjoying some downtime with his family before moving to the Premier League with Tottenham – having been replaced at Roma by former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.

The 48-year-old Portuguese former professional defender, was let go by the Serie A giants following two seasons at the helm, winning 53 of his 102 games in charge.

While the decision would've been a disappointing one, we will now be feeling refreshed following a short holiday with his wife ahead of what will be a busy preseason.

Katerina Ostroushko, who is 18 years younger than her partner, married the boss back in 2018, having been the former press secretary of Shakhtar owner Rinat Akhmetov, Fonseca's former club.

She is said to have quit her job when he was offered the head role at Roma, and they are now set to relocate to London with the son they welcomed in 2019.

Fonseca was previously married to Sandra, with whom he shares two children.

"He loves all of his three children dearly, he’s an ideal dad," she told Italian publication Wedding Industry Academy.

"He spends every spare minute he has with Martin, who is absolutely crazy about his father and I sometimes feel jealous."

While Fonseca’s first competitive game as their new head coach will to come against reigning champions Manchester City – he might be there without Harry Kane.

While Daniel Levy is said to value his forward at £150million, his desire to win trophies could see him force a move away from his childhood club for a lesser sum.

With the England skipper fully focused on England's clash against Scotland on Friday, Fonseca will be boosted by a new deal for Son Heung-min according to The Telegraph.

They add that Fonseca will be joined by his 'trusted ally' in Tiago Leal, who worked with him at all his past four clubs in Roma, Shakhtar, Braga and Pacos Ferreira.

Fonseca said after leaving Roma: "Over these last two years we have experienced a number of highs and lows, but I have always given my all for this club and this city – a city that has always been so welcoming.

"I would like to thank the Roma fans, everyone we have worked with at Trigoria, the players, and all those who have helped us during this journey – in particular Dan and Ryan Friedkin, for their continuous support since they arrived, and Tiago Pinto, an incredible professional, whom I wish the best as he continues his work for the club.

"We still have some very important games in front of us this season that we want to win, and we will continue to give our all in order to do so."
