Tottenham Hotspur’s search for a new head coach continues with the club still yet to announce who will be the successor to Jose Mourinho.

Daniel Levy decided to part company with the Portuguese last month after the club were seventh in the Premier League table and had been surprisingly knocked out of the Europa League table.

A host of names have already been linked with the vacant hot seat in North London with Jack Pitt-Brooke claiming that Erik ten Hag, Ralf Rangnick, Roberto Martinez and Graham Potter are in the running for the job (The Athletic).

Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso has been added to the shortlist of possible names for the job, with Gattuso has been ‘watched’ by Levy and is now on a shortlist alongside Antonio Conte and Simone Inzaghi, according to Rai Sport journalist Ciro Venerato who spoke to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli yesterday.

Gattuso is out of contract at the end of the season, with Venerato claiming that his time in Naples will come to an end shortly.

Venerato said as translated by Sport Witness: “Gattuso will not be the Napoli coach from Monday, the Napoli players have known for months that Rino will no longer be the Napoli coach. Lazio and Juventus are on Gattuso, but the news of the day is that Tottenham have put Gattuso on the list of candidates for the next coach.

“The English club have been dealing with Conte for a month, but now also like Gattuso. Tottenham president Daniel Levy has seen many Napoli matches and has watched Gattuso closely. He was impressed by the quality of the game and the quality of the ideas seeing the matches against Milan and Roma.”

  1. Better allow the New manager to impose his style than saying we are hiring you to play the spur way which has never won nothing in 14 years. Styles imposed buy fans, legends and pundits and never gets trophies.
