The Guardian have revealed that the managers who are currently out of work would prefer to take over at Tottenham Hotspur during pre-season rather than immediately.

Over the last 24 hours, multiple publications have now started reporting on the possibility of Antonio Conte being relieved of his duties this week.

The Telegraph revealed yesterday evening that Daniel Levy has had conversations with several of his close confidants on the matter and that the expectation is for the Spurs chairman to pull the plug on the project this week.

The Guardian have now reported something quite similar, stating that it is ‘increasingly hard to see’ how the Italian could still remain in charge for Spurs’ next game against Everton on April 3.

The publication explains that the North London club have already begun checking the market for potential replacements for Conte as they look to ‘accelerate’ the 53-year-old’s departure.

However, it is asserted that the one problem for Spurs is that out-of-work contenders such as Mauricio Pochettino, Thomas Tuchel and Luis Enrique, would prefer to step in at the start of pre-season rather than immediately.

The Guardian suggests that Ryan Mason would thus be a contender to take on the job until the end of the season just as he did when Jose Mourinho was sacked back in April 2021.

One can understand why the aforementioned names would prefer to take over in the summer so that they can have a pre-season to get their ideas across to the squad.

However, there is no doubt in mind that it would preferable to put Mason in charge until the end of the season rather than continuing with Conte any longer as the Italian has clearly lost the dressing room.
