Tottenham have confirmed the appointment of Luis Martins as first team coach.

Martins has previously worked at Sporting Lisbon - where he oversaw the Under-17 and Under-19 sides and was also the club's assistant coach in 2004-05 - and Braga. Last year he travelled to Saudi Arabia to work with the national and Olympic teams.

A short statement on Tottenham's official website said: "The club is delighted to announce the appointment of Luis Martins as first team coach.''

Martins will work beneath new Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas, who has yet to recruit his number two.
