Peter Crouch slams embarrassing Tottenham Hotspur manager search
Former Tottenham Hotspur star Peter Crouch has slammed the North London side for their embarrassing search to appoint a new manager.
Antonio Conte parted ways with Spurs a few months back. However, since then, several names have been linked with the Lilywhites, but nothing concrete has been done about filling the vacancy in the club’s dugout.
Speaking via the Daily Mail, Crouch, who spent a few years on Tottenham’s books, has expressed his disappointment in the shambolic approach the North London side have taken to find a permanent head coach.
“It’s a really difficult one. They’ve had so many people in the running and then ruling themselves out, it’s become a little bit of an embarrassment to Tottenham.”
Conte was appointed the Lilywhites’ head coach in the middle of the previous campaign after the dismissal of Nuno Espirito Santo. The Italian did well last season and got us into the top four.
Unfortunately, in the 2022/23 terms, the former Inter Milan and Chelsea boss was unable to get the best out of the team. Spurs then appointed his assistant Cristian Stellini as the interim manager. But that backfired as well.
Ryan Mason has been in Tottenham’s dugout for the past few weeks, but the North London side have still been inconsistent. The ex-midfielder has struggled as well.
Arne Slot was close to being appointed Spurs’ next manager. However, the Dutch manager seems to have snubbed the Lilywhites and put pen to paper on a new deal with the Eredivisie champions.
Ever since Mauricio Pochettino’s departure, Tottenham have struggled to keep a hold of a head coach for a considerable period. There has been a revolving door policy over the last few seasons.

Hopefully, Daniel Levy and the others in charge will soon find the next successor to take the North London side forward. But it remains to be seen whether the hierarchy will go for an experienced gaffer or someone with promise.
