Tottenham in ‘secret’ talks with five candidates for manager’s job

Speaking to talkSPORT (h/t Daily Star), reputed Italian journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are in secret contact with five different managers to take over the reins at the club.

Tottenham relieved Jose Mourinho of his managerial duties in April earlier this year – a week prior to the club’s Carabao Cup final clash against Manchester City. While Ryan Mason saw the campaign through as the interim boss, Daniel Levy & co. have yet been unable to narrow down on a full-time replacement for Jose.

Several names have been mentioned, setbacks have been faced over the past couple of months, and as things stand, Tottenham are still not close to naming a new boss. While it is important that the club finds the right person to take the team forward, especially after what ensued under Jose Mourinho, leaving things too late don’t paint the club in a good light.

Ernesto Valverde among candidates Tottenham have approached

Nevertheless, efforts to find a replacement continue in the background, with Romano claiming that the club has been in contact with five different candidates, that includes former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde and Ralf Rangnick. The journalist also mentions Erik ten Hag as a key target for Tottenham. (h/t Daily Star)

“They are in contact with many managers and are trying to keep it a secret. They have talked to five different managers in the last week. For example, I’m sure they contacted Ernesto Valverde on Friday.

“They were also talking with Ralf Rangnick, Ten Hag has always been there but it’s not easy, I’m told that Ajax are convinced that he’s staying. They have many managers on the list and I think they will make a decision this week.”

Erik ten Hag can be a brilliant managerial signing for Tottenham

Among the names that are mentioned Ten Hag would be the ideal choice for Tottenham. The Dutchman has tasted plenty of success at Ajax, has the reputation of bringing in and developing young players and sets his teams up to play an attractive, attacking brand of football.

But, as Romano adds, a move for Ten Hag might not be easy. It remains to be seen which way Tottenham decide to go.
