Gennaro Gattuso walked away from Tottenham job because of the club’s ‘mess’

Speaking to Football Italian (h/t Daily Mail), Napoli and Italy forward Lorenzo Insigne has shed light on the reasons behind why talks between Tottenham and Gennaro Gattuso failed.

Tottenham have been looking for a new manager for over two months now and having failed with their attempts to sign the likes of Brendan Rodgers and Antonio Conte, the club turned to Gattuso.

The AC Milan legend looked poised to take over the reins of the club only for talks to break down all of a sudden, leaving Spurs’ hotseat still vacant. And Insigne, who is a close confidant of Gattuso, having played under him at Napoli last season, has revealed what he heard from his ex-manager about the whole situation. (h/t Daily Mail)

“We’ve texted each other, he told me there was a bit of mess. But now I am focused on the Euros, while he’s on holiday so I am not going to ask him such questions.”

It has been over two months since Tottenham sacked Jose Mourinho. But a replacement is yet to be named. Former midfielder Ryan Mason saw the rest of the 2020/21 campaign through as the interim manager, failing to take the club to a top-six finish.

The situation has got a bit chaotic at Tottenham. With the pre-season set to start in a matter of weeks, an appointment needs to be made at the earliest. With clubs already concentrating on signing new players, Spurs cannot risk being left behind.
