Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Michael Brown has admitted that he has been left shocked by the news that Paulo Fonseca could become the club’s new head coach.
The Athletic reported last night that the former AS Roma manager is Fabio Paratici’s main choice to succeed Jose Mourinho and is in advanced talks with Tottenham.
Fonseca departed the Italian outfit at the end of the season with Roma having finished in seventh place in Serie A.
Brown has suggested that Daniel Levy could have been running out of managerial targets having appeared to have set their sights on Fonseca following links previously with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte.
The 44-year-old admits he is looking forward to seeing what the club’s stance is on the situation and whether the manager will receive the financial backing he will need, given the fact that the squad needs strengthening ahead of the new season.
🗣”It has come as a little bit of a shock.”
