Journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke revealed on The View from the Lane podcast this week that Spurs do not have any money worries in their search for a new head coach.

The Lilywhites parted ways with Jose Mourinho at the end of April, replacing him with Head of Academy Player Development Ryan Mason until the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho was one of the highest-paid managers in the Premier League after taking over from Mauricio Pochettino at the North London club, with a £15m-per-year contract at Spurs.

With Tottenham having to pay compensation to the Special One after leaving, it begged the question whether they would have the budget to appoint another big name.

However, Pitt-Brooke has revealed that money will not be a problem for Tottenham in their search for a new permanent head coach for the 2021/22 season and beyond.

He also added that Spurs are not only looking at managers currently out of work, but those currently in roles at other clubs around Europe also.

He said: “One good bit of news is that I know some people have speculated that there wouldn’t be any money for the new candidate. Well, we’ve heard that money isn’t going to be a big problem.

“It’s not like Spurs are only looking at people who are currently out of work. Mourinho is beneficial to Spurs financially.”
