There has been a mixed reaction on social media from some Tottenham fans to suggestions that RB Leipzig manager Julien Nageslmann is being eyed by North London club.
The Athletic have reported that Nageslmann has admirers at Tottenham as the pressure continues to mount on Jose Mourinho in light of his side’s poor run of form.
However, it has been suggested that the Portuguese coach’s job is not under threat at the moment, with Daniel Levy seeing this as a long-term project rather than an immediate fix.
Nageslmann’s reputation has blossomed as he has done a stellar job at Leipzig on the back of impressing at Hoffenheim.
Despite being just 33 years of age and relatively inexperienced at the top-level, the German coach’s is already one of the most sought-after in the world and some Spurs fans have urged Daniel Levy to move quickly for him.
However, others insisted that Mourinho deserves to be backed in the transfer market so that the 58-year-old can show how far he can take the club.
I've said it before, but Nagelsmann is a very Levy manager.

When will this board realise they need to back their manager

Hiring a new manager isn’t the problem. The problem is the board, it’ll be the same issues even with a new manager. Give Jose sometime

Pochettino had 5 years, Mourinho deserves more time to get rid of the terrible players in this squad so we can play how we know we can under one of the best managers in history

Great interview with Aurier here, and done words for Spurs fans to listen to. Mourinho is a winner and wants to win at Tottenham. Yes the last couple weeks have been tough but time and patience (and a new centre back) is what Jose needs. #THFC #COYS https://t.co/h5UiM0belf

We wouldn’t win anything unless we invested in the squad heavily… should back Jose before looking at other managers
No point trying to play like Liverpool and Man City when we’d never get the players they have

Spurs Web Opinion
Based on a rough estimation of the mood on social media (which is obviously not a great way to access any fan base), I would say that the majority of Spurs fans are still not calling for Jose’s head. While the 58-year-old has come under some criticism, I believe most fans are ready to give him until the end of the season to turn things around. However, extreme voices are always amplified on social media and there is now a vocal minority who seem to have already made up their minds that his time is up.
