“Coaches Julian Nagelsmann, Mauricio Pochettino, and Roberto De Zerbi on Their Coaching Journeys”

Tottenham in Search of New Manager Following Conte Departure

Tottenham has parted ways with their manager Antonio Conte with ten games remaining in the season. While the club remains in contention for next season’s Champions League, the scathing outburst against the team and club owners by Conte after the 3-3 draw against Southampton was the last straw. Cristian Stellini and Ryan Mason will manage until the end of the season while the club looks for a new permanent boss. Some hot favourites to manage Tottenham include former boss Mauricio Pochettino, Luis Enrique, and Brendan Rodgers. Here we will discuss the candidates.

Mauricio Pochettino

The most obvious choice for Tottenham is Pochettino. The Argentine is familiar with the club after spending five years there, and some of Tottenham’s best moments in recent history came under his guidance, including a Champions League final in 2019. The 51-year-old is currently unemployed and has been linked with Premier League jobs in the past, which may indicate he is looking to return to England. Spurs averaged 1.89 points in the Premier League under Poch, more than Conte and Jose Mourinho, but Levy sacked him four years ago. Returning to your old club is rarely a successful move, and it may require Levy to swallow his pride.

Brendan Rodgers

Rodgers could be a brave choice. Leicester is having a disappointing campaign, and the fans have started to turn on Rodgers, who has already been told to leave by portions of the support. Spurs do not need another ‘nearly’ man, and while attractive football might win over some fans, the desperation for a trophy is more intense. There have been signs of mental cracks in teams under Rodgers in the past, and that is already a clear problem at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Julian Nagelsmann

The 35-year-old is highly-rated and only lost three games before being sacked by Bayern Munich. Real Madrid has been linked with Nagelsmann, while he was thought to be keen on Spurs before Jose Mourinho took the job.

Frank Lampard

This would be vastly unlikely, but the club has hired former Chelsea managers before. Lampard had a disastrous time at Everton, where they were free-falling this season and battling to stave off relegation. Still, the Chelsea legend’s work with young players and on tight budgets cannot be understated. Young stars such as Oliver Skipp, Djed Spence, Alfie Devine, Troy Parrott, and Jude Soonsup-Bell might also appreciate his arrival, as they would get a better chance of first-team football than under Conte.

Luis Enrique

Enrique always surfaces when big Premier League jobs become available, and he seems destined to take one soon. While coaching Barcelona from 2014 to 2017, he led one of the best sides ever seen, winning the treble in 2015. His links with Spain can help Tottenham bring in youthful, attacking players – something the club desperately needs. There is a caveat that he has no experience managing in the Premier League.

Thomas Frank

The Danish coach is the reason behind Brentford’s success, leading them to the Premier League where they are competing for Europe this season. His work has not gone unnoticed, with some significant clubs said to be interested in him. Tottenham could be one to come knocking in the summer, and it might work out well for Frank.
