Tottenham set to ‘revisit’ interest in former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann after Chelsea snub

Tottenham Hotspur are set to revisit their interest in former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann after he recently pulled himself out of the running to become Chelsea’s new boss.

This is according to TalkSPORT (h/t Express), who state that chairman Daniel Levy is ‘hopeful’ that Nagelsmann can be convinced of becoming Tottenham’s new boss after being snubbed by him previously.

The German tactician was relieved of his duties at Bayern in March with Thomas Tuchel taking charge at the Allianz Arena. He has since been without a club but one can imagine teams would be lining up for his services already.

The 35-year-old is still very young and is one of the brightest minds in world football. He is surely only getting better with age and will be learning new tricks and tactics with each passing season.

Right move?

He would be an even better manager, and a much more experienced one at that, after his spell at Bayern Munich, where he managed a dressing room with a host of superstars. Nagelsmann is a big name in European football.

He would be one of the safest options Spurs can take when it comes to hiring Antonio Conte’s permanent successor. They have sacked Cristian Stellini, with Ryan Mason becoming the interim boss for the time being.

We need a new boss with a fresh approach to on-field tactics and the transfer market. Antonio Conte made a number of stop-gap signings and never really signed a player who instantly bettered Tottenham in the present, apart from probably Dejan Kulusevski.

It is time we get in a manager who will bring in short-term success but is here for the long run and is invested in the project at N17. We can’t make another mistake like Conte. He was a great manager but never really looked like sticking here for the long run.

Nagelsmann is young and has a lot of time ahead of him. If he can commit at least five years to Spurs, there is no reason why we shouldn’t trust him with the keys to the managerial offices at Hotspur Way. With Chelsea out of the way, hopefully, Tottenham can get their man.
