Tottenham Hotspur are now into their ninth week of searching for a new head coach.

A whole host of names have been linked with the vacant managerial position in North London, with Gennaro Gattuso proving to be one of the most controversial.

The 43-year-old left Fiorentina earlier this month after just 23 days in charge after it was said that there was a difference in opinion regarding transfer decisions (BBC).

Many Tottenham fans took to social media in uproar of speculation that the former Italian international would become Jose Mourinho’s successor over alleged comments he had made regarding same sex marriage and the role of women in football (Metro).

Napoli player Lorenzo Insigne has revealed his former boss told him there was a ‘bit of mess’ at Tottenham during an exchange of text messages with the pair said to remain close friends.

He told Football Italia: “We’ve texted each other, he told me there was a bit of mess,” 

“But now I am focused on the Euros, while he’s on holiday so I am not going to ask him such questions.”

Gattuso was not the right appointment for Tottenham for countless reasons both on and off the field.  Levy needs to remain true to his promise of appointing an head coach who fits in with the DNA of the club, however, at this late stage it is proving difficult.
