Tottenham to name new manager before the end of the season, claims Alasdair Gold
Taking to Twitter, Football.london’s Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has claimed that the club will make the announcement of a new manager before the end of the season.
Tottenham sacked Jose Mourinho from the managerial position last week after a disappointing run of results since late last year. Former midfielder Ryan Mason has been named in charge of the club till the end of the season on an interim basis.
At the same time, Tottenham are searching for a new full-time manager and have been linked with a host of names over the past few days. Julian Nagelsmann had been a top target, but is set to take over at Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is another target high on the wishlist of Tottenham Hotspur. However, the potential lack of Champions League football at the club next season could be a major roadblock in his pursuit.
RB Salzburg boss Jesse Marsch was the newest entry on the list of managerial candidates for Tottenham. But, we are set to miss out on him as well, as he will now be replacing Nagelsmann at RB Leipzig before next season. Ajax’s Erik ten Hag is a strong contender for the job now. (h/t Daily Star)
Amidst all the speculations and setback, the ever-reliable Alasdair Gold has now revealed that the club intends to make an appointment before the end of the season, which is only three weeks away.
Understand Spurs are aiming to announce their next manager before the end of this season. So just over three weeks to get that done and dusted.
