Who are Tottenham looking to appoint as new manager?
As previously stated, it appears that Spurs will not make a permanent move for a manger until after the season (unless they conjure up a pre-contract agreement).
Since Tottenham were knocked out of the Champions League at the hands of AC Milan, there have been all kinds of managers being linked with the job. This includes well-known, high profile names as well as some who many have never even heard of.
Since being abruptly sacked by Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann has been at the forefront of rumors for the Tottenham job.
Nagelsmann ticks all of the boxes for Spurs. He is a young, attacking-minded manager who is quite flexible with his formations and tactics. Nagelsmann is also said to have a soft spot for the club, which fans will enjoy hearing.
However, Nagelsmann’s sacking at Bayern cannot be ignored. Bayern are in a great place despite not having the Bundesliga wrapped up, but because of poor performances, Oliver Kahn felt that a change was necessary.
Maybe the move from Leipzig to Bayern was too big of a jump. Nagelsmann would not be uner the same kind of pressure at Spurs as he would be given time to build the squad in his image.
There can never be a managerial rumor about Spurs without Mauricio Pochettino being thrown in the mix. The man seems to be waiting for the club to give him a call.
Pochettino also ticks all of the boxes. He loves the club, wants his side to play on the front foot, and would love to be at Spurs for the long haul.
However, this would mean that Levy must admit failure in sacking Pochettino the first go-around. But if Pochettino was given a better transfer budget than his first stint at the club (and hopefully not going several windows without signing a single player), he could bring Tottenham back to prominence.
