Tottenham Hotspur have encountered financial issues in their deal to complete the appointment of Paulo Fonseca as their new head coach, according to Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio.

Sky Sport Italia are reporting that Tottenham have now begun talks with Gennaro Gattuso as a possible alternative candidate.

Gattuso left Fiorentina just 23 days after joining as manager, with the decision said to be down to a disagreement over transfer strategies (The Athletic).

Fonseca was expected to be confirmed as Tottenham’s new head coach this week on an expected three-year deal after talks progressed well last weekend (Guardian).

First, the Mauricio Pochettino to return rumours, followed by the Antonio Conte talks and now the issues with Fonseca.  Tottenham’s managerial search has been nothing short of a PR disaster and has the club looking foolish in the eye of the footballing world.

You have to wonder that the likes of Harry Kane are truly thinking when they are watching these scenes unfold.
