Writing on Twitter, journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke of the Athletic has shared news on the next managerial step for Tottenham Hotspur which will occur ‘in the next few days’.
The Lowdown: Tottenham back to square one…
Spurs have now been dragged back to square one in their search for new boss after talks with both Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso broke down last week.
Indeed, this has prompted past candidates to re-enter the fray for Tottenham – with names like Ralf Rangnick and Erik ten Hag coming up again in the conversation.
Time is running out for Spurs to appoint a new boss, however, as non-international players will return for pre-season training on July 5.
The Latest: The Athletic reporter shares next step for Spurs…
As per Pitt-Brooke of the Athletic, writing on his social media, Tottenham will now take a step in the right direction over appointing their next boss.
Indeed, the journalist explains that chairman Daniel Levy wants a coach ‘who plays the right way’ and will move to ‘re-examine’ the original shortlist of managers ‘in the next few days’.
This list of candidates includes the likes of ten Hag and Brighton boss Graham Potter – coming after new managing director Fabio Paratici deviated away from those names in favour of Fonseca and Gattuso.
The Verdict: Good news for Tottenham?
One good thing about Tottenham’s original shortlist was the clear profile of boss.
Levy included the original requirements in his end of season letter to supporters and it outlined a manager who prefers an open, attack-minded style of football who can also give opportunities to promising youngsters.
As botched and ridiculous the manager search has become over these past two months, a slight glimmer of light could be this news that Spurs are now re-considering that originally enticing profile of new head coach, rather than veering off to less desirable candidates out of desperation.
