Writing on Twitter, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has shared news of an announcement from Tottenham Hotspur involving Paulo Fonseca.
The Lowdown: Tottenham manager search over?
Tottenham have been without a head coach since they sacked Jose Mourinho back in late April with a plethora of names being linked to the role.
The likes of Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers were early top contenders, but after Spurs failed to get anywhere with them, they turned their attention to other targets.
The Latest: Romano drops major Fonseca claim…
Writing on Twitter, Romano has now shared a major update he’s hearing on Fonseca and the job at Tottenham Hotspur.
Indeed, the reporter claims that Fonseca is ‘set to sign’ his contract with Spurs with the club now ‘already planning’ for an official announcement and working on transfer strategy.
“Paulo Fonseca is set to sign his contract as new Tottenham head coach,” said Romano.
“Club now already planning for official announcement and transfers strategy together with the Portuguese manager.”
The Verdict: Right move?
After all the talk involving both Conte and Pochettino, Fonseca seems like quite a downgrade by comparison – but his style could actually be suited to Tottenham.
An experienced title-winning manager at previous club Shakhtar Donetsk, he also promotes an open, attacking brand of football and is known for promoting youth (Evening Standard) – fitting right into chairman Daniel Levy’s requirements going by his end of season letter to supporters.
While not the glamorous big name, there could be hope that Fonseca does in fact deliver at Tottenham.
