Report: Premier League club braced for Spurs approach for manager

Tottenham Hotspur have earmarked Thomas Frank to be in contention to become their next head coach with Brentford braced for an approach, according to talkSPORT.

The north Londoners are currently searching for a replacement for Antonio Conte, who departed the club in the wake of Tottenham’s 3-3 draw at Southampton in late March.

Frank has helped to transform Brentford during his time with the Bees, who are in contention for a place in Europe next season.

Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagleslmann, however, news filtered out on Friday to claim that they were not considering him for the role (BBC).

Some Tottenham fans had called for the return of Mauricio Pochettino and sung the name of the Argentine during the latter stages of the Conte era and while Cristian Stellini was in temporary charge.

Daniel Levy has however decided to ignore the calls from the fanbase and instead has given Chelsea a free run at their former head coach.

Reporter Alex Crook told talkSPORT: “Thomas Frank is name that increasingly keeps coming up in conversations as someone Tottenham have an admiration for.

“I would go as far as to say that Brentford are even anticipating an approach for Thomas Frank.

“Would he be a big enough name to keep the Spurs fans satisfied?

“They need to make a decision because they’re just in a state of flux at the moment.

“Ryan Mason is doing his best to try and get results between now and the rest of the season.

“I think they’re probably going to miss out on Europe, there will be Spurs fans who say, ‘well that’s not a bad thing, because we can do what Arsenal did, we can have a complete reset.’

“But they need a new director of football, they need a new manager and they need some direction.”
