Praise like that from a rival manager doesn’t come around all too often, and the veteran boss’ story from banker to manager is certainly indicative of his work ethic and just how much he loves the game (BBC).
However, we believe Nagelsmann should still be the number one target due to the fact he is the more exciting younger coach (Goal.com) and viewed by those within Tottenham as the perfect choice (Daily Mail).
