New name in the frame for Tottenham Hotspur job after supporter backlash towards Gattuso

Posted by

It’s fair to say that Tottenham Hotspur have become something of a laughing stock of late, mainly due to their appalling manner of acquiring a new manager.

It was thought that Antonio Conte would join the north London outfit after quitting Internazionale, despite taking them to their first Serie A title in 10 years.

A difference of opinion over finances is believed to be why that deal didn’t get over the line, with similar noises being made about the failed Paulo Fonseca appointment.

Erik ten Hag is now Tottenham’s preferred managerial candidate

Throw in supporter backlash at the news that Gennaro Gattuso then emerged as the front runner for the job, effectively rendering that route moribund, and Daniel Levy finds himself in a real quandary.

However, as ESPN now note, another high-profile name has entered the frame, and this is one that Spurs fans can’t really have any complaints about.

Ajax’s Erik ten Hag has been on the north Londoner’s radar for a while now, which really begs the question why they didn’t just plump for him in the first place.

  1. It’s not a new name, we’ve been linked to him from the start and we were turned down. Then he signed another contract with Ajax.

  2. There common denominator in the successive back offs of prospective managers is obviously D. Levy. He does not seem to go the extra mile to entice only the best, always wringing the meanest deals for both incoming and outgoing managers and players. What good is an Opera House without the tenors or sopranos? We never felt the need for the new stadium, should have invested in the team! ENIC, Levy OUT!!!

  3. Nick benitez b4 he signs for everton is about the only quality option we have left he would do as a temporary measure until we can find a better option like the return of the king (poch)

  4. IF , (and it’s not an if) you have a very small brain.
    you don’t understand the financial future generation of income streams.
    The new Stadium is the long term ( And it is all about long term)
    Future of Football.
