According to The Telegraph reporter Matt Law, Markus Krosche is expected to turn down the chance to become Tottenham’s next sporting director.

Tottenham are thought to have stepped up their search for a new sporting director, with Football Insider revealing on Friday that the Premier League club have already talked to multiple candidates about the vacancy.

The publication explained that Spurs have started conversations with Brentford’s technical director Lee Dykes, whose recruitment decisions at the West London club have impressed Daniel Levy, and also German sporting director Johannes Spors.

Meanwhile, The Daily Mail revealed yesterday that Roma general manager Tiago Pinto and Eintracht Frankfurt‘s CEO Markus Krosche were also being considered by the North London club’s hierarchy.

Law has now taken to social media to confirm that Pinto has indeed emerged as a candidate for the Lilywhites’ sporting director role alongside Dykes and Spores but he asserted that Krosche is likely to turn down any approach from Tottenham.

Tottenham are going about the procedure in the right manner by bringing in Scott Munn as their chief football officer and using his help to hire a sporting director, who would in turn give his input on the new head coach.

However, one cannot help but feel that Levy and the Spurs hierarchy could have acted earlier, especially given that Paratici’s future at the club had seemed precarious for a long time.
