Report: Levy believes deal for out-of-work coach would be ‘difficult to pull off’

The Independent have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are of the belief that it would be difficult to convince Luis Enrique to take the job.

While discussing who the North London club could turn to after their pursuit of Arne Slot has fallen through, the report names Luis Enrique as one of the names at the top of the Lilywhites’ wishlist.

The publication states that Daniel Levy ‘greatly values’ the former Barcelona coach, who has been out of work since parting with Spain after last year’s World Cup.

However, it is explained that the Spurs hierarchy sees a deal for the 53-year-old as being ‘difficult to pull off’, particularly given the list of demands he made when Chelsea previously interviewed him.

Enrique is also thought to be on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain, with Le Parisien revealing on Thursday that the Spaniard is the Ligue 1 side’s number-one choice to replace Christophe Galtier at the helm this summer.

While Enrique’s sides play possession-based, high-intensity football, Spurs might have reservations about the Spaniard’s temperament as he has fallen out some of his players in the past. 

He is also not really a project manager and could get frustrated if his processes do not have the intended results straightaway.
