Speaking live on Sky Sports News (via Football Daily), journalist Kaveh Solhekol has shared news on Tottenham Hotspur and their hunt for a new manager.
The Lowdown: Big past 24 hours
In the past 24 hours, we’ve seen a handful of major stories come out of the woodwork which could really affect Tottenham Hotspur and their search for an heir to Jose Mourinho.
The Athletic then lifted the lid on Spurs talks with former boss and fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino as he becomes a possible contender for the role.
The Latest: Solhekol shares all on Conte…
Sharing news on the Conte situation amid his links to Spurs, Sky Sports reporter Solhekol has now revealed what he knows after ‘talking to people close’ to the 51-year-old.
“Obviously, we’ve been making some phone calls, talking to people close to Antonio Conte,” explained the journalist live with Sky Sports on Wednesday (via Football Daily).
“What they’re telling us this evening is they think that Spurs are looking for a softer manager who’s personality would be easier to manage.
“I don’t think you could describe Antonio Conte as somebody who’s a soft manager or somebody who has a personality who’s easier to manage.
“From people close to him, he doesn’t look like he’s going to Spurs.”
The Verdict: Makes sense…
Amid the huge news of Pochettino’s talks with Tottenham, it’s hardly surprising that Conte’s move to north London seems unlikely given the difference in profiles.
Tottenham had been thought to want an open, attack-minded manager in the image of Pochettino and the 51-year-old arguably doesn’t fit that bill.
One person who does, of course, is Pochettino himself – and the recently emerged negotiations to bring him back to Tottenham appear to be taking precedence.
However, it is believed that PSG will fight tooth and nail to keep him with chairman Daniel Levy possibly facing a difficult task.
