Fabrizio Romano reports Tottenham could bring in a surprise new manager

Tottenham borrow £175m to ease coronavirus impact

The Italian journalist has provided a major update on Spurs’ managerial changes.

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a flurry of managers as they are looking to replace makeshift manager Ryan Mason.

Mason assumed the managerial role on a temporary basis after Spurs sacked Jose Mourinho.

The young and inexperienced English manager has fared decently towards the latter end of the season. Yet, he couldn’t help North Londoners qualify for either the Champions League or Europa League.

Now the famous Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has made a fresh claim that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy could appoint a surprise manager from next season.

Speaking of the options, Ajax’s Erik ten Hag was the first to get linked with the job, and Inter Milan’s Antonio Conte soon followed him. The prospect of Conte joining the North Londoners looks implausible as he has recently led the Nerazzurri to the Scudetto after a decade, and his next objective would be attaining similar success in the Champions League.

Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers was said to have rejected the offer from Tottenham, while the shock links of Hansi Flick has proved futile as he looks to have committed his future to the German national team.

Nuno Santo, who recently left Wolves, could be a surprise option, but Romano ruled out the possibility as the Portuguese gaffer is said to be not on the wishlist of Spurs.

Levy has caught in a dilemma in appointing the next manager, who can make Spurs regular contenders for the top-four race.
