Tottenham Hotspur are in preliminary talks with French coach Laurent Blanc according to Sky sources.

Blanc is currently at Euro 2012 where is he managing France, Sky claim that preliminary talks have begun and that he is one of a number of candidates that Tottenham are talking to.

More on this as we get it.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Please let it be Blanc

    If there is a Lord, not AVB he will drive me bonkers. As soon as he loses a game the pressure will mount and he won’t be able to handle it

    Blanc please

  2. This would be a bit more like it. League and cup winner in France and currently on a 23 game unbeaten streak. I likes.

  3. I’d be very happy. France play nice football and his Bordeaux team were very good when he was in charge. He can handle big pressure and even bigger egos and, after an illustrious playing career and promising start to his managerial career, he would be able to convince quality players to stay/join the club. Lots of articles on the internet are warning against another French manager taking over at WHL but Blanc is very different to Santini and his methods would better suit the club.

  4. Yes def, get him in and Txiki Begiristain as DoF and were looking very very good, we can then attract some very decent talent with those guys at the helm!!!!!!

  5. A great choice, he is no Santini. A top record at Bordeaux where he won the double and has transformed the French side that got booted out in 2010. And he plays the Spurs way. He is head and shoulders above the rest.

  6. quality wouldn’t mind any of the 4 aformentioned moyes, avb, martinez or blanc. whould prefer blanc though the class of player and now manager and person would be a major coup for us come on mr levy

  7. Big difference between blanc and santini, is that blanc speaks english (two years at united would have seen to that). IMO, what the squad needs now is a manager capable creating/maintaining a good spirit within the team, plus someone who’s appointment will give the WHOLE club a lift after what has begun to feel like a disappointing season. I believe Levy knows this and thats why I think the AVB rumour is nothing more than paper talk.

    Jurgen Klinsmann would be another great appointment, while another manager I’ve always admired is Owen Coyle although a move for him would be highly unlikely considering the season he just had.

  8. if we are in with a sniff for Blanc, Levy need to gett his man. Young, talented and respected. Good track record and perfect for us. Do it Dan!
