Tottenham Hotspur’s managerial search sees the club looking to appoint a new head coach who considers the job in north London to be their first choice, rather than someone who has higher priorities elsewhere, according to Football.London.
Spurs have been without a permanent head coach since the departure of Antonio Conte at the end of March following his explosive post-match press conference at Southampton which saw the club make the surprising decision to appoint his assistant, Cristian Stellini as acting head coach for the remainder of the campaign.
The club are keeping their options open until the summer when more managerial candidates could arise and the futures of some could be decided with many clubs including Chelsea currently seeking a permanent appointment.

If Tottenham are looking for an elite manager who puts the club at the top of their list ahead of some of the other vacancies likely to be around this summer, it will be a very short list.
The club is in disarray from the bottom to the top, which manager in their right mind would look to harm their reputation by taking the poison chalice in north London which has seen the likes of Jose Mourinho and Conte fail to turn things around.
