Fabrizio Romano confirms Tottenham Hotspur target Oliver Glasner will leave Eintracht Frankfurt
Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Oliver Glasner, who has been linked with the Tottenham Hotspur job, will leave Eintracht Frankfurt this summer. Spurs have been without a permanent head coach since Antonio Conte’s exit in March, with Ryan Mason the current interim boss.
The 48-year-old Austrian manager has been with the Eagles since 2021 and made them into a formidable team in the UEFA Europa League last season, where they went on to win the competition.
“Oliver Glasner will officially part ways with Eintracht Frankfurt at the end of current season. #Bundesliga Glasner, prepared for new chapter in the next months.”
Who to go for?
At the age of just 35, he has already built iconic teams at Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig and won multiple domestic trophies with Bayern Munich. He could have even led them to a good run in the UEFA Champions League this season but was fired midway through it.
If it comes down to Oliver Glasner and Nagelsmann, it will be hard for fans to completely take one’s side over the other. The German is young and has a better C.V. in terms of the team he has managed, and is a more popular figure in world football.
But the saga with him has drawn on for a while. If he was sold on the project at Spurs, perhaps there would have not been a lot of time and trouble for us to get him on board. Glasner has been busy with Frankfurt, so his situation is understandable.
At least the Austrian will leave Frankfurt this summer, making our job easier in case we still want him. This season is more or less over for us. UEFA Europa Conference League football seems like the best we will manage for next season.

It’s best to use this period to earmark who has to stay, who has to leave, and which manager comes in this summer. It is important we hire the next permanent head coach soon so they have ample time for their medicine to work at Tottenham.
