‘Without a doubt’ – Hoddle reveals who Spurs would have wanted as their new manager

Glenn Hoddle has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur’s search for their next head coach is something that will not be decided overnight.

Daniel Levy decided to part company with Jose Mourinho last month just days before the Carabao Cup final with the club in seventh place in the Premier League table and having suffered a surprise exit in the Europa League against Dinamo Zagreb to further dent their hopes of returning to the Champions League next season.

Ryan Mason was installed as interim head coach until the end of the campaign with the 29-year-old having won both top flight fixtures but saw his side fail to threaten Manchester City in the Wembley showpiece.

With Julian Nagelsmann having been confirmed as the next manager of Bayern Munich, Hoddle believes that there are not many suitable candidates who are currently between jobs.

Ajax boss Eric ten Hag has signed a one-year contract extension with the Dutch giants while Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he is focused on the job in hand at Leicester City.

Hoddle told the Evening Standard: “That is a difficult one because there is no real candidate at this moment in time.

“Julian Nagelsmann was one who Spurs would have been targeting without a doubt before he went to Bayern Munich.

There are not that many options who are out of work and prizing someone away from another club will be difficult.

“So I do not think there is a real candidate there. Spurs have got to think long, deep and hard about the decision. It is not going to be decided overnight and will take time.”
