Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that there is no truth to reports suggesting that Tottenham are considering replacing Jose Mourinho with former Chelsea and Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri.

There has been plenty of speculation regarding Mourinho’s future in light of Tottenham’s struggles over the last few months.

Many names have been mooted in the press as potential replacements for Mourinho, including Brendan Rodgers, Massimiliano Allegri and Diego Simeone.

However, it is RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann who has been most heavily linked, with the German coach said to have many admirers at Spurs.

It remains to be seen if the North Londoners would be able to attract Nagelsmann as Bayern Munich have also been credited with an interest in the 33-year-old.

Sarri, who has been out of work since leaving Juve a year ago, was the latest coach linked with the Tottenham hotseat this week.

However, Gold ruled out the possibility of Levy moving for the Italian and also added that Spurs are unlikely to make a decision regarding the managerial position until the end of the season.

When asked about the rumours linking the club with Sarri, the journalist said in a Q&A: “I understand there’s no truth in Spurs looking to bring Maurizio Sarri in.

“On Mourinho, I think he will be given the chance to manage the club in the final. Let’s be honest, in terms of one-off games on the big occasions he does have previous there, even if this season has been disappointing.

“There’s also an issue as I’ve said before in making any decisions before the summer due to the lack of candidates around who would be happy with managing the club for just two months.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Given that Levy’s main reasoning behind bringing Mourinho to the club was to help us win silverware, it would be pretty pointless to sack him before the Carabao Cup final. He has shown that he can motivate his players to get over the line in one-off finals against Pep Guardiola’s sides. However, even if we somehow manage to cause an upset in the final, I do not think it would be enough to save his job.
