Tottenham Hotspur are still yet to formally announce their new head coach following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho in April.

Following a managerial merry-go-round over the past 50 days which has seen the likes of Antonio Conte, Mauricio Pochettino, Erik ten Hag and Roberto Martinez linked with the post, it appears that Spurs have settled for Paulo Fonseca.

The BBC claimed yesterday that Spurs were close to confirming the former AS Roma boss as their new head coach with talks nearing a successful conclusion (BBC).

The Telegraph claim that Fonseca is set to be joined in North London by his ‘trusted ally’ Tiago Leal, who has been at the Portuguese’s side during his stints as manager at Roma, Shakhtar Donetsk, Braga and Pacos Ferreira.

The 36-year-old also left Roma at the end of last season following the departure of Fonseca works as a match analyst.

Leal revealed in a previous interview with the official AS Roma YouTube channel that he does not sit with the rest of the backroom staff on the bench, but instead positions himself high in the stand from a higher vantage point to get a better view and shares the footage with Fonseca and the rest of the team as the match unfolds.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Hope this one works for us. DL does have our best interest despite what tosser Adrian Dumdum tells “I don’t hate Arsenal. I don’t hate Spurs. I don’t support Manure.”
    If he is a professional journalist, he must be unbiased and not stimulate controversial issues fired by twat fungus (old fartrod).
    He just used the word “spursy” when the news mentioned Fonseca.
    DL has done well by not going for dicks like Bending Todgers and Bobby Fartinears.
