Tottenham: Tuchel contending for Spurs job

Tottenham: Tuchel contending for Spurs job - Premier League News

Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is ‘in the equation’ to replace Tottenham manager Antonio Conte.

The Lowdown: Spurs planning for future?

Reports claim that sporting director Fabio Paratici has drawn up a list of Spurs managerial targets with Conte unlikely to stay beyond this Premier League campaign.

The Lilywhites have an option to extend Conte’s stay by a further 12 months but all signs are pointing towards the Italian’s inevitable exit.

Spurs are currently chasing a top four finish after being knocked out of both the FA Cup and Champions League in the space of a week, potentially motivating the club to think beyond this season.

The Latest: Tuchel in contention…

Numerous names have been linked to taking the Spurs job, including fan favourite and ex-head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy has claimed however that Tuchel, who is out-of-work since leaving Chelsea, is also in contention to replace Conte.

Indeed, the German is apparently ‘in the equation’ for Spurs alongside a plethora of other shortlisted coaches.

The Verdict: Great candidate…

A Champions League-winner, clinching ten pieces of silverware in total throughout his career, Tuchel stands out as a serial winner who is readily available.

His past ties to Chelsea are one factor but, by his own admission, the 49-year-old did support Spurs as a child.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

Tuchel also has proven experience in the English top flight managing many superstar players – yet another incentive for chairman Daniel Levy to consider a move.

Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle called his work at Chelsea ‘fabulous‘ with their left-back Ben Chilwell also seriously endorsing the ‘unbelievable’ coach.

If Tottenham can’t get Pochettino back, they may have a very viable alternative also without a club.
