Marcelino addresses links with Tottenham Hotspur managerial hotseat

According to Football.london, Athletic Bilbao boss Marcelino has responded to speculations linking him with the Tottenham Hotspur manager job. The 55-year-old has been heavily linked with the Tottenham manager’s post following the sacking of Jose Mourinho this past Monday.

The Athletic claimed that Tottenham had even initiated contact with the representatives of the former Valencia and Villarreal manager to explore the possibility of him taking over the reins at the club next summer.

Marcelino had been without a job since leaving Valencia back in 2019. He returned to management in January earlier this year with Athletic Bilbao and led them to the Copa del Rey final, where his team were beaten by Barcelona.

Marcelino has a contract with the Basque outfit till the summer of 2023. However, Tottenham had still been linked with a move for the former Sevilla boss. The 55-year-old, though, has claimed that he is very happy at San Mames, in the process distancing himself from the Spurs hotseat.

“I have nothing to say about Tottenham. I am happy here at Athletic Club.”

The report goes on to add that Tottenham are eyeing for a manager who is attack-minded and favours possession-based style of play. Julian Nagelsmann of RB Leipzig and Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers are both in the fray for the job while Brighton & Hove Albion’s Graham Potter is also said to be under consideration.

Marcelino, too, would fit the profile of the manager that Tottenham are looking for. But the 55-year-old has pretty much denied any interest in the job.

Apart from the aforementioned names, former AC Milan and Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri also interests Tottenham, along with Ajax’s Eric ten Hag. It will be interesting to see who the club decides to bring in for the next season. For now, Ryan Mason will see out the rest of the season in an interim capacity.
