The 47-year-old impressed throughout his time as a club manager, leading Swansea to the Championship and developing an attractive style of play that subsequent managers, including Brendan Rodgers, followed.
Most famously he led Wigan to their first ever FA Cup trophy in 2013, beating Manchester City in the final just three days before the club were relegated from the Premier League.

Ryan Mason has been in interim charge of the club since Mourinho’s departure and secured a seventh place finish, which will see Tottenham compete in the new Europa Conference League next season.
They may be entering that competition without Harry Kane after the striker rocked the club by asking to leave this summer.
The striker is yet to win a trophy with the north London side, despite scoring 221 goals in 336 games, and is linked with moves to Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.
