With the Premier League reaching its climax as we head towards the final few games, it has to be said that Tottenham’s season has fallen well short of expectations.
The club are currently seventh in the league and remain in a battle to secure any form of European football for next season. Such fortunes have led to the sacking of Jose Mourinho, with Ryan Mason currently in charge on an interim basis until the end of the campaign.
It has to be said that, without the goals of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son this season, you would dread to think where the club would currently be. Last March saw the pair become the league’s best-ever partnership in a single season (Goal).
But one former Spurs player believes that the stars could soon depart North London if the manager situation isn’t sorted in the coming weeks (Football Insider).
The club have failed to secure a man for next season thus far and it is becoming an anxious wait for fans and players alike.
Alan Hutton spoke to Football Insider regarding the current state of the club and the Scotsman believes that Spurs need to find a quick solution.
Hutton stated: “I feel that they need to get a manager over the line soon.
“To really put that plan of what direction the club are going in place. Your top players, if Harry Kane goes, then Son’s looking about thinking: ‘Right well, he’s away, maybe I want to go somewhere else and try something.’
“I think they need someone in with a plan. Even a project, moving forward for the next four or five years, where this club wants to go. It’s a massive club, you’ve got everything in place at the moment to compete at the top.”
The manager situation arguably is not helping Tottenham, with Kane being continuously linked with a move away from the club, and Manchester United being touted to make a £90 million move for the striker (The Sun).
However, any coach walking into the Spurs job will be doing so in the hope to work a player of Kane’s quality.
Spurs Web Opinion:
It has been an anxious wait for fans regarding who will take charge of the club, so one can only imagine how the players must feel. The last thing that any new coach would want is to start their tenure at Spurs with a huge task of replacing the best players, so it is down to those running the club to ensure that doesn’t happen.
