After the swift departure of Harry Redknapp as Spurs manager in the early hours of the morning, the question is, who will be the next manager at White Hart Lane?
At the time of writing this, the favourites for the job are: David Moyes, Roberto Martinez and AVB. So, who should Levy appoint as Redknapp’s successor?
The current Everton manager has undoubtedly done well at Goodison Park with the limited funds he receives. But, could he successfully manage a top-four side? Well, in the 10 years Moyes has been at the club, they have qualified for the UEFA Cup 3 times and the Champions League once. However, the season before the top 4 finish Everton finished 17th, and the season after struggled to break into the top half of the season and finished 11th. So is this the man to take Spurs forward?
The Wigan manager has been linked to every single vacant managerial position for months, so could this be his big break? Unlikely. Martinez has shown that he can create the passion and enthusiasm which has seen his time overcome teams such as Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. But, I can’t help but feel that he is the person who gets them in that position initially. Regardless of the fact, I have no faith in him that he could be the person to secure Champions League football for Spurs, especially considering he has struggled to break out of the bottom half of the League.
A young, vibrant and accomplished manager. Winning the UEFA cup, he has accomplished a continental trophy which majority of the current Premier League managers have failed at winning. Of course there will be the people who say he is a failed Chelsea manager, but Spurs aren’t Chelsea. Levy will have patience and considering the club are in the UEFA cup this season, it would give AVB a chance to show that he is one of the best young managers around.
Wanting revenge against Chelsea and feeling that he has a lot to prove, AVB would relish at the chance of being able to manage an ambitious club who have developed a new training ground and planning for a new stadium, and therefore preparing for the long term.
Even though he took Chelsea to around 6th place for the majority of the season, it was his first job in the Premier League and now that he has become accustomed to the tempo of play, if AVB is to tackle the EPL with any team, he will surprise many people regardless of the team he manages.
