Manager hunt: Curtains for Tottenham as Bayern appoint their new manager

Bayern Munich confirm appointment of Tottenham Hotspur target Julian Nagelsmann

According to Italian journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Bayern Munich agreed a £25million deal with RB Leipzig to appoint Julian Nagelsmann as their next manager, with Tottenham Hotspur said to have ‘no chance’ at that stage.

Nagelsmann has been linked with a job at Spurs recently. The links peaked after Jose Mourinho was sacked by Daniel Levy earlier this month.

Spurs are left in the hands of 29-year-old interim manager, Ryan Mason, who failed to deliver the Carabao Cup trophy after a loss to Manchester City this past weekend.

But Spurs are on the lookout for a long-term replacement for Mourinho. However, Naglessmann will not be their man, as the Bundesliga champions later confirmed that they have appointed the 33-year-old for next season. (h/t Bayern Munich official website)

The news comes after Hansi Flick agreed to terminate his contract at the end of this season to take over the German national team in the summer. The former Hoffenheim manager has signed a 5-year contract with them.

No chance for Nagelsmann

After Nagelsmann’s comments following his appointment, it seems that he always preferred Bayern and that Spurs never really stood a chance.

“I always wanted to join FC Bayern, it’s a unique opportunity for me”.

As for Spurs, the search continues. Mason does not seem like the man for the job considering his young age and inexperience at this level.

There were big hopes when Mourinho was appointed in 2019. And after a good start to this campaign, fans dreamt of the club landing a trophy, or at least finishing in the top 4.

But a torrid 2021 saw Spurs exit all cup competitions without anything to show for it and fall behind in the race for the top 4. The next appointment should be done with care and a long-term goal in mind.
