Tottenham Hotspur’s hunt for new manager takes a step forward after meeting with Gennaro Gattuso

According to The Athletic journalist, David Ornstein, Tottenham Hotspur are not going to appoint Gennaro Gattuso as their new manager after talks with him broke down.

Spurs’ hunt for a new manager has been going on for what seems like ages now. We sacked Jose Mourinho back in April and are yet to appoint a new boss to take over the helm.

Ryan Mason’s spell as an interim boss was shaky and it is evident that Daniel Levy wants a capable replacement for the Portuguese. And the search seemed like it was reaching a conclusion when talks with Paulo Fonseca began.

The predecessor of Mourinho at AS Roma looked all set to become the new Spurs boss. However, as reported by The Athletic (Subscription Required) and covered by ToTheLaneAndBack, a deal for the 48-year-old Portuguese fell through.

Gattuso is not the new manager

In light of that, Gattuso was approached by the club and looked like the favourite to land the job. But according to the report, Spurs have decided not to appoint him as their new manager after holding talks with him.

This would come as another blow to Spurs fans who can’t seem to catch a break, with two managers ruled out within the space of several hours.

When other clubs are planning for transfers and preparing for the season ahead, Spurs are still not able to pin down a manager for the next campaign. Even Gattuso seemed like a hurried choice and an alternative rather than a target they would have had as a priority.

He signed a deal with Fiorentina this summer but exited that job within a month. Given the club has waited for so long to appoint a manager, it would be wise to have more patience and not just appoint anyone to appease the fans.
