Tottenham’s hunt for a trophy fails again as another manager is fired.
Antonio Conte departed Tottenham on March 26 amicably following a Champions League elimination and a shocking Premier League draw with Southampton.
From Conte, Cristian Stellini took over but after a 6-1 loss by Newcastle last weekend he has been fired. Ryan Mason, a dependable stand-in, stepped over in what is likely to be a temporary appointment after Cristian Stellini.
As potential candidates to permanently replace Conte, a number of names have already surfaced we look into some of them.
Australian Postecoglou, who is currently in charge of a strong Celtic squad, has previously been mentioned in connection with a number of Premier League jobs.
Postecoglou is a desirable option for Spurs because of his career-long trophy-winning streak.
However, the 57-year-old seems completely content at the Hoops and is determined to stay in Glasgow for at least another season as they attempt to regain their position as a major power in Europe.
Roberto De Zerbi
After joining Brighton at the beginning of the 2022–2023 season, the young Italian coach wasted little time in attracting attention in England.
The Seagulls are in great form in the Premier League under De Zerbi, and after defeating teams like Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea this year, they have a real opportunity to qualify for Europe next year.
The 43-year-old has prior experience with Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk; in 2021, the latter team and the 43-year-old won the Ukrainian Super Cup.
Could Tottenham actually hire again their previous manager? There’s no reason Pochettino wouldn’t be considered a legitimate choice.
Since leaving PSG in the middle of 2022, the Argentine has not been in management. Despite his brief stay in Paris, Pochettino managed to win silverware there — three trophies, in fact — something he was unable to do with Spurs.
Tottenham may be tempted to rehire Pochettino now that he has that experience, and he appears receptive to doing so.
The Argentinian is well-liked by everyone in north London, and because he is currently jobless after his time at PSG came to an end last year, the Lilywhites wouldn’t have any trouble hiring him.
The young German coach would be a fantastic addition to Spurs after being unexpectedly fired from Bayern Munich.
The 35-year-old had great success with Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig while managing Bayern, losing just 10 of his 84 games.
Nagelsmann won’t be cheap, though, and might need persuading to join Tottenham.
The Danish boss is rightfully on the radar of several teams after doing miracles at rival Premier League club Brentford.
Frank is already a resident of London, so he wouldn’t have to move away to take the Tottenham position, and he has demonstrated his capacity to make the most of what he has, which would be music to Daniel Levy’s ears.
Frank, however, appears to be under the Bees’ control when they gave him a new long-term contract in 2022. It’s also difficult to imagine him attempting to force his way out with the team maybe flirting with a spot in Europe next season.
In his first managerial position in England at Burnley, Vincent Kompany, one of the most well-known players in recent Premier League history, has done an outstanding job, convincingly securing the title and automatic promotion.
Additionally, he is a pupil of Pep Guardiola, and we know that several of his previous pupils have achieved great success, such as Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.
Since this is only his third season on the sidelines and none of them have been in one of the top five leagues in Europe, one would wonder about his lack of experience.
However, the Championship features 46 games in a season in addition to cup competitions, so he should be ready to lead a club through a long season.
However, it is improbable that Kompany would leave Burnley so soon to the season’s end given that they will play in the Premier League next year. Despite this, Kompany might be the one to help Tottenham qualify for the Champions League.
