Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites made recent Roger Schmidt approach

Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites made recent Roger Schmidt approach -Tottenham Hotspur News

According to SportBILD, as shared by Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur made a recent enquiry to appoint PSV Eindhoven manager Roger Schmidt.

The Lowdown: Spurs bring in Conte…

After originally sacking Jose Mourinho at the end of last season, Tottenham’s managerial search lasted two whole months before they elected to hire Nuno Espirito Santo as the Portuguese’ direct heir.

Can you name all of these forgotten Spurs wonderkids? This guy was once called 'the next Didier Drogba'...

Not fairing any better, the former Wolves boss’ reign lasted just four months before he too was shown the N17 exit door – coming after he attracted criticism for his style of football and lack of intensity.

Over what has been a torrid few months for Spurs as they try to get back fighting among the Premier League’s biggest sides, they have now managed to appoint serial winner Antonio Conte in what is a very exciting move by the club.

However, as reported by SportBILD (via Sport Witness), Tottenham also made a recent enquiry for another title-winner.

The Latest: Spurs made recent Schmidt enquiry…

Indeed, as per the German news source, Tottenham and Everton both made approaches for the PSV boss who is apparently a man in demand – especially given the fact his contract is up at the end of this season.

An Austrian league title-winning coach with RB Salzburg, there is no mention on how recently the Lilywhites lodged an enquiry, but is claimed they were interested as Schmidt eyes a possible move to England or Spain.

The Verdict: Interesting claim…

The 54-year-old wasn’t a bad candidate taking into account his solid points per game tally of 1.84 and the fact Pep Guardiola is an admirer.

During his time at Bayern Munich, the Man City boss heaped praise on Schmidt and admitted that he is a ‘big fan’ of both him and his playing style at former club Bayer Leverkusen (ESPN).

However, Spurs eventually managed to secure the right man for their tough job in Conte, who has a glittering CV and spotless record almost everywhere he goes.

The Italian was certainly worth the wait and Lilywhites supporters may well be glad they didn’t go any further with Schmidt as a result.
