Eintracht Frankfurt manager Oliver Glasner could become Tottenham Hotspur manager if Antonio Conte walks
Conte’s contract at Spurs expires this summer. There is no news or indication that he will pen fresh terms with the Lilywhites.
Amidst this, Daily Mail has claimed that Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper, free-agent Mauricio Pochettino and Eintracht Frankfurt manager Oliver Glasner could all be options for Spurs if the former Inter Milan manager walks.
Poch, of course, knows Spurs inside out. He basically built the current Spurs team that has become a contender for the top-four spot week in and week out.
Glasner to Spurs?
The Argentine had a subpar spell at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and is a free agent since leaving the role as Les Parisiens boss. Glasner’s name is also an interesting inclusion.
The 48-year-old Austrian is currently Eintracht Frankfurt’s manager. He won the first major trophy of his career when he guided the Eagles to UEFA Europa League glory last season.
It is never easy winning a European competition, that too with a club not considered by some as a true supergiant. He has been at Frankfurt since the summer of 2021 and is on a contract that expires at the end of next season (Transfermarkt).
Before this, he was VfL Wolfsburg’s manager for two years from 2019 to 2021. It would certainly be interesting to see us going for Glasner, who isn’t as popular a name as Pochettino and Conte are.

But perhaps this is what we need. Not going after the glamorous names but relatively younger managers who have fresh ideas and the hunger to succeed.
