According to a report in Sport1 (as relayed by Frankfurter Rundschau), Oliver Glasner, who was mooted as a target for Tottenham not too long ago, could now be sacked by Eintracht Frankfurt.

Although it was initially suggested by some sources last month that Glasner is on Spurs’ radar to replace Antonio Conte (Fabrizio Romano –YouTube channel), the speculation linking the Austrian to the North London club has died down over the last couple of weeks.

According to the most recent updates, it is Julian Nagelsmann, Arne Slot and Vicent Kompany who have emerged as the three leading contenders to take over in N17 (Football Insider).

Glasner continued to be linked with moves to Premier League clubs until a couple of weeks ago, with German outlets even suggesting that the Bundesliga side were trying in vain to tie the Austrian down to a new contract (Sky Germany).

However, if Sport 1’s latest update is to be believed, the 48-year-old is now in danger of losing his job at Frankfurt as the club have only won one of their last 12 matches.

The report states doubts are festering behind the scenes at Deutsche Bank Park, with the players seemingly losing faith in Glasner.

It is suggested that the coach, who guided Frankfurt to Europa League glory less than 12 months ago, could soon be out of a job.

Glasner’s fate at Frankfurt should perhaps serve as a warning to other up-and-coming coaches like Arne Slot to strike while the fire is hot.

It can be a risk to turn down big jobs when your stock is high as there is no guarantee that those sorts of clubs would come calling again. 

While Glasner was being talked up as a potential candidate for the Spurs and Chelsea job just a little over a month ago, he might find it difficult to even get a mid-table Premier League job if he is sacked by Frankfurt.
