According to an update by Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas, writing on Twitter, a detailed appraisal of Tottenham Hotspur’s situation and how best to move the club forward is now ‘underway‘ and will include inquiries about ‘a number of options‘ over the coming weeks.
Thomas, as well as this, drops a claim in contrast to what most other reliable outlets are reporting in regards to the Spurs managerial timeline.
Sky Sports journalist drops managerial development
football.london and Alasdair Gold, for example, believe that Spurs are aiming to announce their new boss before the end of this season – but Sky Sports now say not to expect a new manager in that time given the coaches up for nomination are already in work.
They believe instead that Spurs will adopt a more patient approach given they’re yet to settle on a preferred candidate after most recent top target Erik Ten Hag signed a new deal at Ajax.
Who should Tottenham appoint?
Indeed, Spurs are ‘underway‘ on a detailed appraisal of their managerial situation and the Lilywhites will inquire about a number of options heading into the summer.
Tottenham’s next boss will need plenty of time to orchestrate transfers and shape the team in his own image, so this update comes as a possible worry for supporters.
Ideally, the hunt for a new boss will not drag on into the European Championships and Lilywhites will be hoping that the club do in fact manage an announcement before the summer months.
Transfer Tavern take
As Spurs need a new top target after the Ten Hag blow, Transfer Tavern recommends out of work 62-year-old ‘perfectionist’ Ralph Rangnick, as described by RB Leipzig forward Yussuf Poulsen.
Dubbed ‘the father of gegenpressing’, Rangnick’s influence stretches over the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Thomas Tuchel, Ralph Hassenhuttl and even Jurgen Klopp (The Telegraph).
Some of these German coaches adopt the same intense high pressing style, and it is believed Spurs are on the look out for a boss who can re-install an attacking brand of football.
Therefore, with Rangnick inspiring a host of these men, he could be an ideal fit for Tottenham.
