Swansea City’s Steve Cooper linked with Tottenham job after Jose Mourinho sacking

According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur hugely admire Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper and may consider him to replace Jose Mourinho as the manager of the club.

Mourinho was sacked by Tottenham on Monday morning after a spate of poor results. The Portuguese’s job was hanging by a thread ever since Spurs were eliminated from the UEFA Europa League in a disheartening manner against Dinamo Zagreb.

And, with the team failing to win each of the last three Premier League games – the most recent one being a 2-2 draw against Everton on Friday, the decision was made to let go of Mourinho and his coaching staff.

Until the end of the season, former Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason has been given the reins as the interim manager as the club devises a plan for a long-term successor for the ex-Chelsea and Real Madrid manager.

RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann is high on the wishlist of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. However, the hierarchy is also looking at other options such as Belgium national team manger Roberto Martinez and England’s Gareth Southgate. In addition, Fulham’s Scott Parker, a former Spurs player and academy coach, is also someone that the club is considering. (h/t The Telegraph)

Perhaps, the most surprising name on the list, though, is that of Steve Cooper of Swansea. A former Liverpool youth coach, Cooper has done a fine job at Swansea, almost leading the Welsh club to promotion last year and likely to lead them to a playoff finish again this term. The report adds that he is someone Tottenham really admire.

Cooper has built a good team at Swansea that play enterprising, attractive football. However, a step up to a club of Tottenham’s stature would be too soon for him. Instead, the club must look at accomplished names such as Nagelsmann or even Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers.
