‘Won everything’ – Pundit believes German coach is right man for Spurs

Former Tottenham defender, Stephen Kelly has urged the North Londoners to make Joachim Low their next manager. 

Julian Nagelsmann was reportedly Tottenham’s number one target to replace Jose Mourinho but the RB Leipzig boss is no longer an option for Spurs as it has been confirmed that he is on his way to Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

One of the reasons Spurs lost out on Nagelsmann was because of Low’s decision to step down as Germany boss after the Euros, with Hansi Flick subsequently agreeing to take over from the 61-year-old, leaving Bayern in need of a new head coach. 

With Nagelsmann now out of the running, reports indicate that Tottenham are considering the likes of Brendan Rodgers, Ralf Rangnick, Gareth Southgate and Erik Ten Hag.

However, Kelly believes that his former club should look no further than Low, who guided Germany to the World Cup in 2014.

When asked who Spurs should appoint, Kelly said BBC Radio 5 Live: “I think someone like a Joachim Low. He is leaving Germany in the summer.

“He has said that he is going to walk away from the Germany national team. He has been there for a long time. 

“I just feel that if you are looking for a name that’s won everything, maybe he might be someone.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

I do not like the idea of going for a national team manager like Southgate or Low as the demands of a head coach in club football are completely different.

Man management skills are often the most important trait for head coaches of nations like Germany or England, who always have a plethora of talent to pick from.

However, at club level, managers are often competing with sides that have similar resources and thus need to be more tactically astute.
