Following Tottenham’s decision to part ways with José Mourinho, the club announced that Ryan Mason would take over until the end of the season.
The 29-year-old has been given a big responsibility ahead of the Carabao Cup final, although few will expect miracles in the coming weeks.
His job will be to see out the campaign, and whatever happens, happens.
Beyond that, it’s fair to say that Tottenham will be looking for a new manager, with names already widely circulating.
The most common has been Julian Nagelsmann, but with Hansi Flick announcing he will be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the campaign, the German manager could stay in his home country.
That’s why we’ve seen the likes of Maurizio Sarri and Max Allegri linked, and Calciomercato.it push those names again.
They state Spurs have ‘already had contacts’ with the former, even if ‘he would not be well received by the fans given his recent past at Chelsea’.
That remains to be seen, since Sarri was only at Stamford Bridge for one season, and it’s no secret José Mourinho also managed the Blues on two separate occasions prior to accepting the Spurs role.
As for Allegri, the option ‘should not be discarded’, although that’s all they have to say on the matter.
Nagelsmann and Erik ten Hag are also mentioned, although they seem to be more logical suggestions instead of anything based on information.
