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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. So the club are according to our billionaire chairman a little short on cash. We cannot afford conte even though he is free to get. A proven winner who will give the whole club a good kick up the arsr like they need. How about the chairman who caused 99% of the problems by buying rubbish players, by letting the spend on the stadium double in price giving us debts close on 1 billion how about he works for nothing. Not as if he is short of a pound. If he really loves the club he will do it save the club some money or better still how about Daniel Joe and the board just sell up clear the clubs debts and clear off.
