Michael Carrick tipped for Tottenham Hotspur job

According to TalkSPORT’s transfer guru Alex Crooks (h/t the Sun), Michael Carrick, the current manager of Middlesbrough, has been tipped as a potential candidate for the Tottenham Hotspur job, which has been vacant since Antonio Conte’s departure.

Carrick, who spent two years at Spurs before joining Manchester United, has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Boro, transforming them into promotion contenders after taking over from Chris Wilder in October.

Tottenham initially had Cristian Stellini as caretaker before replacing him with Ryan Mason after a humiliating 6-1 defeat at Newcastle United. Vincent Kompany, who led Burnley to the Championship title, was initially linked with the job.

However, Carrick’s name has been thrown into the mix by TalkSPORT’s transfer guru Alex Crooks, who believes the 37-year-old would be an interesting candidate to keep an eye on. The Red Devils legend has had a great start to management.

“Michael Carrick I think would be an interesting one to keep an eye on if Middlesbrough don’t go up.”

His experience as a player for the club and his knowledge of the Premier League would make him an ideal candidate for the job. He has shown his managerial skills this season by transforming Middlesbrough’s fortunes and leading them to the playoffs.

However, expertise as a player does not necessarily translate into management – you do not need to look further than Frank Lampard to realise that. A job at Tottenham might be too soon for Carrick.

Tottenham’s search for a new permanent manager is crucial, and it is essential they get it right this time. After the turmoil of the last few seasons, the club needs someone who can bring stability and a sense of direction.

Tottenham must weigh up all their options carefully. Nagelsmann is a highly regarded manager, and his appointment would signal a statement of intent by the club. We need a manager who is established rather than someone who is finding his feet. Let’s see who we eventually go for.
