Tottenham Hotspur: Journalist stunned by N17 development

Tottenham Hotspur: Journalist stunned by N17 development - Tottenham Hotspur News

Quoted by LaRoma24, translated by Sport Witness, Italian journalist Massimiliano Magni has been left stunned by a development at Tottenham Hotspur involving Paulo Fonseca.

The Lowdown: Spurs and Fonseca…

As widely reported, it looks like Fonseca is now the overwhelming favourite to become Tottenham’s new manager.

Only true Spurs fans will get 100% in this impossible 2020/2021 season quiz...who was Daniel Levy's first summer signing?

Talks had been held with elite candidates like Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte, but moves for both men eventually fell through.

Paris-Saint Germain stood firm and refused to grant a Pochettino return to north London, meanwhile talks with Conte broke down due to an alleged difference in plans for Spurs.

Now, Fonseca has reportedly emerged as the prime candidate thanks to incoming sporting director Fabio Paratici.

The Latest: Magni left stunned…

Indeed, talks are apparently at a very advanced stage over the 48-year-old’s appointment and Italian reporter Magni just can’t quite believe the development.

“Tottenham fire Mourinho and take Fonseca, it’s a surreal thing,” he explained (via Sport Witness).

“They went from Conte to Fonseca. There are things that can’t be understood at Tottenham.”

The Verdict: Right to be bemused…

Swapping Mourinho for Fonseca is, on paper at least, a pretty bizarre move by the club – even if he wasn’t the prime candidate to begin with.

Compared to Roma’s 2020/2021 season under the Portuguese, Tottenham’s league record from last campaign is practically identical.

As per Sky Sports (via Football Daily), both teams carried the exact same number of games won (18), games drew (8), games lost (12), league points (62) and even goals scored (68).

The only difference between both sides is Roma managed to concede more goals in the league (58).

Therefore, it’s little wonder those in the media are feeling a little bemused.
