Tottenham in no hurry to appoint new manager, contrary to reports
According to a latest update from BBC, Tottenham Hotspur are in no rush to appoint a new manager contrary to what reports have been claiming over the past week.
Tottenham made the move to sack Jose Mourinho from the managerial position on Monday last week following a dire run of form that saw us crash out of cup competitions and drop down the Premier League results.
Ever since, the rumour mill has been buzzing with reports of Tottenham going after manager after manager, with the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag the most strongly linked. However, Nagelsmann has agreed to join Bayern Munich while Rodgers and ten Hag have committed their futures to Leicester City and AFC Ajax respectively. (h/t BBC)
This has painted Tottenham in a poor light due to their supposed inability to land their managerial targets. The report from BBC though has claimed that the club is being treated unfairly as there have been no approaches made over the appointment of Mourinho’s successor as of yet.
Indeed, it is stated that Tottenham have held no discussions over the job vacancy with any of the aforementioned managers and even if they had, they would have been pointless. Instead, chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to take his time and identify the right man for the job, with him yet to narrow down on a preferred candidate. (h/t BBC)
This claim comes in complete contrast to that of Football.london’s Alasdair Gold, who earlier this week, had insisted that Tottenham want to appoint a manager before the end of the current season, which is in a couple of weeks’ time.

It remains to be seen when an appointment is made and who Levy decides to rope in. For now, though, Ryan Mason will continue to remain in charge and look to guide us to a top-four finish.
