According to The Telegraph, Tottenham have found another new name in their managerial search, as they are now interested in appointing Roberto Mancini.
The Lowdown: Spurs continue farcical search
It is now more than two months since Daniel Levy sacked Jose Mourinho as the club’s manager, yet he is still to hire a replacement.
Paulo Fonseca (The Mirror), Antonio Conte (football.london) and Gennaro Gattuso (The Athletic) have all reportedly been close to a move to north London, but those deals have fallen apart for a number of different reasons.
The Latest: Mancini now on Spurs radar
Now, it seems Spurs have an eye on former Manchester City manager Mancini, who is currently the boss of Italy.
As of yet, though, there has not been an official approach – mainly because the Azzurri are still participating at Euro 2020.
The Verdict: Star quality
Hiring Mancini as Tottenham’s next boss would be a huge coup for Daniel Levy. The Italian has already proven himself in the top flight, leading City to their first Premier League title, while he has won domestic leagues on four separate occasions throughout his career.
Would you want Mancini as boss?
With Italy, he is doing an astounding job. Incredibly, the national side are unbeaten in their last 30 games in all competitions (Goal.com), and have won all three of their games so far at the European Championships without conceding a goal (Sky Sports).
Prising Mancini away from his current job would be difficult, but it is definitely worth a try for Levy given his track record.
