‘Great possibility’ – Journalist tips former Chelsea boss as a possible Mourinho replacement

Italian journalist Raffaele Auriemma believes that the Spurs hot seat would be a good fit for Maurizio Sarri.

There has been plenty of speculation over Jose Mourinho’s future at Spurs, with reports indicating that the Tottenham boss needs to turn results around quickly if he is to keep his job.

The likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Brendan Rodgers have all been touted as potential replacements for Mourinho.

However, Auriemma believes that the North London club might go for Sarri, who has been out of work since being sacked by Juventus at the end of last season.

Sarri made a name for himself at Napoli and despite winning trophies at both Chelsea and Juve, the Italian boss spent only one season at either club.

Auriemma believes that the Tottenham and Arsenal jobs would be ideal fits for the 62-year-old.

The journalist told Si Gonfia La Rete (as relayed by Area Napoli): “I have the feeling that the coach of Figline Valdarno can go to coach one of these three teams: the Tottenham, Arsenal or Barcelona.

“We are talking about three teams that may need a new technical guide. These are of course only hypotheses.

“Barcelona will refound a lot, but it is clear that they have only one goal: to win. They should also play well. As for Arsenal, however, we are not talking about a winning team.

“In recent years it’s not like they have achieved such sensational results. If I were in Maurizio Sarri I would choose Tottenham or Arsenal. It would be a great possibility.”

I do not think any of the Premier League’s top clubs are likely to go for Sarri. The Italian’s next job will likely be in the Serie A. While Hasenhuttl would have likely been at the forefront of the Spurs hierarchy’s mind until a couple of months ago, that does not appear to be case on the back of Southampton’s recent decline. It does seem like Naglesmann is the club’s number one choice should they decide to part ways with Mourinho.
