According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Tottenham are to return for Belgium manager Roberto Martinez as their managerial search continues.
The Lowdown: Chaos reigns
Tottenham sacked Jose Mourinho as their boss two months ago, yet they are still without a permanent replacement.
After deciding not to move forward with the Italian next (via The Daily Mail), they are now back to the drawing board in what is fast becoming a quite remarkable saga.
The Latest: Back to Martinez
Spurs had been linked with a move for Martinez earlier in their search, but once the Euros started that speculation died down as he focuses on his task with Belgium.
Now, though, Daniel Levy is set to return for the former Everton manager as the chairman has had his palate tickled – a wonderful choice of words from the Italian outlet.
The Verdict: Solid record
At this point, Tottenham simply have to make a decision and fast – they can surely not afford to go too much longer without a boss at the helm as they prepare for the transfer window and new season, so it may become a case of taking the best they can get.
However, as last resorts go, Martinez would not be a bad one.
Would you take Martinez as boss?
At Everton, he led the Toffees to a fifth place finish in the Premier League, although there were questions raised in regards to his defensive set-up (via The Daily Post), and of course his crowning achievement was leading Wigan to FA Cup success over Manchester City.
Now, with more top-tier experience under his belt and an enhanced reputation having managed truly elite talent with Belgium, he could be a good appointment if he were to arrive in north London.
In other news, Tottenham are interested in this up-and-coming striker.
