A new report on Tottenham Hotspur’s managerial search suggests Julian Nagelsmann has been ‘left in the dark’ regarding the club’s interest in him.

Tottenham have been hunting for a new permanent manager after parting ways with Antonio Conte at the end of March.

His former assistant, Cristian Stellini, lasted just four games before being sacked after the disastrous defeat to Newcastle United.

The saga surrounding Nagelsmann has been a fascinating and ultimately frustrating one for anyone connected with the club.

The German was relieved of his duties by Bayern Munich around the same time as Conte left Spurs, and he has been linked with Spurs ever since.

The 35-year-old was seemingly out of the race to become the next Spurs manager, after the club apparently did not see him as a good fit (Evening Standard).

However, more recently it has been suggested that Nagelsmann could be back in the running if Spurs’ next Director of Football were to like him for the role (Telegraph).

According to The Times, Nagelsmann is even on course for fresh talks with Spurs and could be interviewed in the aftermath of Arne Slot falling by the wayside.

In the latest from the Daily Mail, it is claimed the man himself is just as confused by the situation as everyone else.

Apparently, “several agents around Europe” have held initial contact with Spurs regarding some top coaches in the game, but “no follow-up calls” have occurred.

Now, Nagelsmann feels “left in the dark” and is unsure whether Spurs even have an interest in hiring him.

Spurs Web Opinion

I cannot understand why we are messing around so much when a manager like Nagelsmann is sitting there waiting for us to speak to him.

Get him in, put this farcical manager search to an end, and let’s get started on a difficult summer as soon as possible.
