After sacking Jose Mourinho just before the Carabao Cup Final, Spurs are still looking to recruit a new manager. Various managers have been linked with the vacant post at the North London club however the club is yet to make an official appointment.
After Brendan Rodgers (Leicester City) and Erik Ten Hag (Ajax) turned down the opportunity to succeed Mourinho, other managers have made the list on the Spurs shortlist. Among them, are Scott Parket and Graham Potter of Fulham and Brighton & Hove Albion respectively. Both of them are held in high regard domestically with a lot of potential to fulfill but a lot of Spurs fans are arguing that they are not the right personnel to spearhead to club to win titles in the near future.
Elsewhere, Roberto Martinez is another name being linked to the Tottenham hotseat having expressed his desire to return to the Premier League after coaching Wigan Athletic and Everton FC. He famously won the FA Cup with minnows Wigan, beating Manchester City in the 2013 FA Cup Final.
Another manager linked with the role is Marcelo Bielsa who is currently managing Leeds United. The Argentine tactician is other the preferred choices of the Spurs fans having won a lot of admirers through his attacking football philosophy with Leeds United. He is out of contract this summer, and he will certainly be an option for Daniel Levy, considering that he needs no compensation fee to be signed up as their new boss.
Jose Mourinho’s predecessor, Mauricio Pochettino, has also been recently mentioned for this role. Despite replacing Thomas Tuchel as PSG coach at the start of year, Pochettino has been eliminated from the Champions League semi-final and is on the brink of losing the Ligue 1 title to Lille with 2 matches to go. Failure to win any silverware may force the club hierarchy to sack the Argentine boss after less than six months in charge.
It remains to be seen who will take the Spurs hotseat. However sources close to the club have said that club chairman Daniel Levy is looking to make an official appointment by early June.
