Tottenham eyeing Erik ten Hag as next manager after Mourinho sacking

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham have now made Ajax boss Erik ten Hag as their top candidate to become the club’s next manager after the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was let go of by Tottenham last Monday following a run of disappointing results. Ex-midfielder Ryan Mason has been given the reins of the club on an interim basis till the ongoing season is over.

While the 29-year-old has a gargantuan task at his hand to lead us back into the top four in the remaining five fixtures, the search for a new permanent manager is ongoing.

Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City has been touted as one of the top candidates being considered while Julian Nagelsmann was another who was high on the shortlist. However, the former is happy at Leicester and might not consider a move while the latter is set to sign for Bayern Munich at the end of the season. (h/t Daily Mail)

This has left Daniel Levy searching for options, with the Tottenham chairman intent on replacing Mourinho with an attack-minded coach after the Portuguese’s style did not go down well with the fans.

Now, Erik ten Hag of Ajax has emerged as a target for Spurs. The 51-year-old has been with De Godenzonen since 2017 and has built a fine, young team that plays enterprising, attacking football, Tottenham came face-to-face with ten Hag in the semi-finals of the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League and will know what the Dutchman is all about.
