The Daily Mail has revealed that Daniel Levy is eager to ensure that Tottenham’s hunt for a new manager does not drag on for too long, with the Spurs chairman narrowing down the list of potential targets.

Julian Nagelsmann was reportedly Tottenham’s number one target to replace Jose Mourinho but it has now been confirmed that the German coach is on his way to Bayern Munich.

The Daily Mail reports that Brendan Rodgers is now viewed by many at Spurs as the ideal option but the 48-year-old is understood to have reservations over taking the role.

Ajax boss Erik Ten Haag is said to be on the North London club’s wish list alongside England boss Gareth Southgate, Belgium boss Roberto Martinez and former RB Leipzig director of football Ralf Rangnick.

The report explains that Levy is aware that that the European Championships will cause significant disruption for clubs and is keen to appoint a new manager quickly so that the new man has the time to implement his ideas before the start of next season.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Ralf Rangnick for DOF if not manager. Who wouldn’t want attacking football, young players developed at not exhorbitant cost. Would have Levy salivating. Dutch managers (Ajax guy) haven’t done well elsewhere a lot of the time. It seems Brendan Rodgers is happy at Leicester. Roberto Martinez was a disaster at Everton. Belgium haven’t won a tournament yet. Not that it’s an easy task. Gareth Southgate is a big no. He can continue with England but could be poor as a club boss. High time Levy got one right. Just Poch and Harry in 20 years!
