Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham have decided on their top candidate to replace Jose Mourinho as manager and hope to appoint him in the next seven to 10 days.
The Lowdown: The search continues
Although we are now at the end of the season, it remains unclear as to who the next Spurs manager will be. Brendan Rodgers was said to be Daniel Levy’s priority, but the Leicester boss has all but closed the door on a move to north London (talkSPORT).
The Latest: Gold makes new boss claim
In an article for football.london, Gold was unwilling to reveal who the new manager would be, but he says that Levy has decided on his number one target.
The journalist added that the Lilywhites hope to unveil the new man in charge in the next “seven to ten days”.
The Verdict: Time is of the essence
With the season now over, Tottenham know exactly where they stand going into the next campaign. While they will have been hoping for Champions League or even Europa League qualification, they will still be playing European football in the new Conference League, and they will need to prepare accordingly for that competition.
Do you expect a managerial announcement within 10 days?
However, they cannot embark on any real transfer negotiations before the new manager is in charge. Whoever that is will have his own ideas on which players need to be brought in, and if Spurs want a successful partnership, they must be willing to work with those targets. Therefore, time is of the essence with regards to this next crucial appointment.
In other news, Levy made an enquiry in February for this star striker.
