Gareth Southgate, Roberto Martinez in the fray for Tottenham job after Mourinho sacking

According to The Guardian, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez and England boss Gareth Southgate are in the fray for the managerial vacancy at Tottenham after Jose Mourinho was sacked.

Mourinho’s stint as the manager of Tottenham came to an end on Monday as the Portuguese tactician and his entire staff was let go of following a run of poor results. As things stand, the club has named former midfielder Ryan Mason as the interim head coach until the end of the season.

But the list of candidates to replace Mourinho full-time is already being drafted, with RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann said to be high on the wishlist of the club. Along with the German, Tottenham are also potentially looking at Belgium manager Martinez as well as England manager Gareth Southgate. (h/t The Guardian)

Martinez has experience in England having managed the likes of Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton. Since taking over the Belgian national team, the Spaniard has taken them to the top of the FIFA World Rankings, while also spearheading them to a third-place finish in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Southgate, meanwhile, has done a fine job with the England national team, impressing in the 2018 World Cup as well as the Three Lions’ qualifying campaigns for Euros and the Nations League.

He has previously stated his desire to return to club management at some point and his relationship with Tottenham star Harry Kane could make him an appealing candidate. (h/t The Guardian)
