Report: Spurs now considering English manager as potential Conte replacement

90 min have claimed that Graham Potter remains in contention to take over as Tottenham’s next head coach.

Over the past week and a half, multiple sources have indicated that Julian Nageslmann, Luis Enrique, Arne Slot and Vincent Kompany are the four front-runners to replace Antonio Conte (Fabrizio Romano – Here We Go Podcast).

However, some other names have also been put forward over recent days, with De Telegraaf claiming on Monday that Bayern Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso is also in contention while ESPN suggested on the same day that Mainz head coach Bo Svensson is also on the North London club’s shortlist.

Meanwhile, the speculation linking Brendan Rodgers with a move to Spurs has also not died out, with Journalist Graeme Bailey claiming on Talking Transfers Podcast recently that the Norther Irishman cannot be ruled out of contention as Daniel Levy remains a fan of the 50-year-old.

90 min have now suggested that Spurs are also considering another manager who was recently sacked by a Premier League club in the form of Potter.

The report suggests that Tottenham expressed an interest in the former Brighton boss before they hired Nuno Espirito Santo in 2021 and claims that the English coach remains in the running after he parted ways with Chelsea last month.

In some ways, I felt that Potter was quite unlucky at Chelsea as he seemingly faced the impossible task of integrating so many new players and was working under quite a dysfunctional setup. 

However, the 47-year-old did struggle to cope with the increased expectations, which might put off Spurs and other big clubs from pursuing him anytime soon.
