The latest report on Tottenham Hotspur’s arduous search for a new manager has thrown Marcelo Gallardo’s name into the hat.

Tottenham have been without a permanent manager for two months now since Antonio Conte left the club at the end of March.

Cristian Stellini took over as interim manager but lasted only four games before being relieved of his duties in the wake of the huge defeat to Newcastle United.

Ryan Mason oversaw the remainder of the campaign as Acting Head Coach. While the young coach inspired a slight improvement in terms of performances from the team, results still left much to be desired.

Tottenham finished eighth in the premier league and will be without European football next season for the first time in a decade.

With a huge overhaul of the squad needed, no director of football in place, and the lack of a continental competition to play in next season, the Spurs job is not a project many managers are throwing themselves at.

In fact, most who have been linked with the role have distanced themselves from the speculation and committed their future to their current employers.

Arne Slot decided to stay at Feyenoord last week, while Xabi Alonso will remain with Bayer Leverkusen, and Vincent Kompany opted to stick with Burnley despite Spurs’ interest (DailyMail).

In a new report from the Daily Mail, it is suggested that former River Plate manager Gallardo could be the man for the job at Spurs.

The report claims Gallardo “could emerge as a late option” as Tottenham assess their remaining options. 

The 47-year-old left River Plate in December of last year and has been without a role since.

Things do seem to go right whenever an Argentinian is involved with Spurs and I wouldn’t be against Gallardo coming in. His no-nonsense approach could be exactly what this squad needs.
