According to an update by reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold, writing for football.london, ‘strong new candidates’ are ‘constantly emerging’ behind the scenes and ‘making their interest known’ for the Lilywhites job.
The Lowdown: Spurs still on the manager chase
It’s now been over a month since Spurs sacked former head coach Jose Mourinho and chairman Daniel Levy has still not announced his new manager.
It had been previously reported that the club were hoping to appoint Mourinho’s heir by the end of this campaign, but with Spurs’ last game of the season coming tomorrow, this now appears dead in the water.
The Latest: Gold drops encouraging behind-scenes update
Sharing an encouraging update on what is going on behind closed doors, Gold has claimed that ‘strong new candidates’ for the job are ‘constantly emerging’.
As well as this, Gold believes that they are also ‘making their interest known’ in the position despite all the toxicity surrounding Spurs at the moment.
The football.london journalist also reports that Levy will attempt to speak to all of his managerial candidates face to face once the season ends, rather than over a video call.
The Verdict: Promising update for Spurs fans
The mere notion many ‘strong’ candidates are now displaying their fondness for the Tottenham job should come as music to the ears of some supporters.
Spurs have suffered many blows recently in the race for a new manager, with former top target Julian Nagelsmann turning down the job and instead opting for Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Brendan Rodgers, said to be another one of Levy’s preferences, publicly ruled himself out for the Tottenham managerial vacancy and his move to north London seems more unlikely than ever after Leicester City’s FA Cup win.
In a breath of fresh air, Gold’s managerial update surrounding the ‘constantly emerging’ wave of candidates come as very encouraging, as it appears top dogs are queuing up for the gig, rather than Levy being forced to scrape the bottom of the barrel.
