Tottenham Hotspur draw up four-man shortlist including Luis Enrique and Luciano Spalletti to replace Antonio Conte

With each passing week, Antonio Conte’s departure from Tottenham Hotspur seems more and more likely. The Italian manager is in the last four months of his deal in N17.

He is yet to pen a new deal and there haven’t been any strong signs that he will commit his future to Spurs. Conte saw his side get eliminated from the UEFA Champions League by AC Milan earlier this week.

Winning the Premier League this season only remains an impossible situation that is termed ‘implausible’ only due to a mathematical possibility. We trail Arsenal by 18 points with 12 games left.

Luciano Spalletti emerges as an option for Tottenham Hotspur should Antonio Conte quit.

We are also out of the FA Cup and the EFL Cup. This season will be another trophyless season at Tottenham and a very poor campaign on Conte’s illustrious C.V. Amidst this, the possibility to retain Cont seems smaller and smaller each day.

Who should Spurs get?

As a contingency plan, Spurs seem to have four names on their list that they could consider. According to the Athletic (Subscription Required) [h/t the Sun], the list includes Ruben Amorim, Luciano Spalletti, Oliver Glasner and Luis Enrique.

Amorim faced Spurs twice as Sporting CP’s coach in the Champions League this season. He helped the Portuguese club lift the league title two years ago and is widely regarded as one of the brightest young managers in Europe.

Glasner currently works at Eintracht Frankfurt and has ample experience in Bundesliga. One name that will catch the eye is that of former Barcelona and Spain manager Luis Enrique.

He won the treble with Barca in the 2014-15 campaign. Enrique recently left his job with Spain after a disastrous 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign, but he has a very impressive C.V.

Spalletti, meanwhile, is on course to win the Scudetto with Napoli, who play a very attractive brand of football under him. These four names are promising and are all managers that could perhaps lead us to silverware.

Any of them could do the trick, as long as we make sure we don’t compromise and get whoever is identified as our No. 1 target. The job at Spurs -a ‘big six’ Premier League club, could be seen as an attractive challenge for them to prove their worth as world-class managers, and to make an entry into English football at a very high level.
