Graham Roberts has taken to Twitter to agree with respected journalist Alasdair Gold over his choice of who the next head coach at Tottenham Hotspur should be.

It was reported earlier this morning that Tottenham have ended their interest in former Fiorentina boss Gennaro Gattuso after being heavily linked with a move for the Italian yesterday evening (The Athletic).

With Tottenham having already held talks with Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and having previously attempted to lure Mauricio Pochettino back to North London, the managerial search continues with tomorrow marking the two-month anniversary of Jose Mourinho’s departure.

Gold believes that Ajax’s Erik ten Hag remains Tottenham’s best fit for the job given the current situation at the club and his track record of working with young talent.

Roberts backed Gold’s claim and also acknowledged that the 51-year-old would be a good fit for the younger members of the squad.

Ten Hag has been with Ajax for four-and-a-half years and led his side to the Eredivisie title for a second time in three years last season, however, he did sign a one-year contract extension with the Dutch giants in April which keeps him under contract until the summer of 2023.

Ten Hag is arguably the most suitable candidate left out there given his ability to work with young talent and promote them to become first-team regulars, as we saw with their remarkable Champions League campaign in 2019.
