Tottenham's next manager latest: Mauricio Pochettino, PSG, the timeframe and other candidates

Tottenham Hotspur's attempts to bring Mauricio Pochettino back to the club have hit a major roadblock in the shape of PSG but they have not given up yet, football.london understands.

It has now been more than six weeks since Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and a fortnight since the Premier League season came to a close with interim head coach Ryan Mason guiding the club into seventh place in the table.

Tottenham's managerial search was first launched with the profile for their ideal next manager being that, while age was not important, the top candidate must be progressive in outlook, attack-minded, favouring possession-based football and most importantly would fit into the club's culture.

Spurs were using cutting edge techniques in much of what they did in the coaching and physical side during Pochettino's five-and-a-half years at the club and there was a desire among many within Spurs to get back to that modern form of management with sports science at the fore.

The reference point for the next manager was always Pochettino himself, with the club looking to recapture the lightning in the bottle that saw the Argentine coach young and relatively inexpensive players to four straight top four finishes - with three of those finishes coming consecutively in the top three as they finished above some of Europe's rich and powerful elite clubs.

A long initial list of potential managers was eventually whittled down to a shortlist, but there was always the feeling that the reference point and best fitting candidate was Pochettino himself and a close eye was kept on PSG's season in case his situation changed.

There is a certain irony of course in the man perceived to the best fit for the Spurs job being the very manager Levy decided to get rid of 19 months ago and should he return it would be the clearest indication yet of the chairman admitting a mistake was made in removing the manager rather than revamping his stale squad.

The Argentine has remained close with many inside Tottenham and maintains a good relationship with Levy despite the decision to relieve him of his duties as manager in 2019, the pair messaging each other regularly.

football.london understands that when it was put to him, Pochettino indicated his interest in a return to north London.

The 49-year-old has made no secret of his intention to become Spurs boss again one day and admits he has unfinished business in N17 after two title challenges and a Champions League final appearance without silverware at the end of it.

Pochettino has not yet settled in Paris is believed to still be living in a hotel in the French capital with his coaching staff, while his wife Karina has, on the whole, remained back in their UK home as their youngest son Maurizio continues his professional career with Watford.

There is also the internal politics of managing a 'super club' like PSG and all of the demands that entails for a manager like Pochettino, who prefers to foster a close-knit family atmosphere at his clubs and did so at Tottenham, Southampton and Espanyol.

There was a hope within Tottenham that a return could be tied up within a fortnight of their final day victory at Leicester City but that hope has been hit by the desire of PSG to keep their man.

There had been an expectation that after winning the Coupe de France and the Trophee des Champions but falling in the Champions League semi-finals and missing out on winning the title with a club that has finished top of Ligue 1 for eight of the past nine seasons would see PSG look to replace Pochettino and the French media reported similar.

However, the French giants have done exactly the opposite and have dug in their heels over the Argentine, with reports across the Channel claiming that they have taken up an option to extend his contract by another year until the summer of 2023.

As it stands, PSG have no intention of allowing Pochettino to leave the club, with Real Madrid also believed to hold a long-standing interest in him succeeding Zinedine Zidane.

football.london understands that Tottenham have not given up hope yet of bringing Pochettino back to the club next month and much could come down to the man himself and his relationship with the PSG hierarchy.

Spurs have a little bit of time on their hands but not much, with the transfer window opening on June 9 and the new manager set to have the final say on who arrives at and leaves the club, while pre-season training must be planned for ahead of the non-international players' return in just over a month's time.

The other issue for Spurs is that if they allow the saga to drag on for too long and with it being so clear that Pochettino is their number one choice, they risk losing other potential candidates.

Tottenham like Erik ten Hag and the Dutchman is believed to have shown an interest in a move, despite Ajax extending his contract by a year. The 51-year-old is seen as having similar qualities to Pochettino in his ability to coach the best out of a squad, while also developing young stars.

There have also been links with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte after he suddenly became a free agent following his exit from Inter Milan. Both men won the league titles this month in their respective countries.

Other candidates could yet come into the picture late on should Spurs fail in their attempts to bring Pochettino back and situations change at other clubs across Europe as financial realities hit them hard in the wake of the pandemic.

For the frustrated Tottenham fans desperate for either Pochettino to return or a new manager to be appointed, the wait looks set to continue for a little while longer.

Tottenham considering Nuno Espírito Santo as their next manager

Nuno Espírito Santo is being considered by Tottenham to take over as manager as they attempt to replace José Mourinho following a protracted recruitment process that has seen negotiations with several candidates break down.

The former Wolves manager is understood to have emerged as a candidate despite the Spurs board having previously indicated that they were not interested in him. Fabio Paratici, the club’s new managing director of football, is believed to hold Nuno in high regard and maintains a good relationship with the 47-year-old’s agent, Jorge Mendes.

Nuno left Wolves in May by mutual consent after four seasons and has been linked with the vacancy at Everton after talks with Crystal Palace broke down this month. Palace were close to appointing the former Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre but that deal has also now fallen through.

Tottenham are also understood to have sounded out the former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde last week to gauge his interest. The 57-year-old is believed to be open to a return to management despite not having worked since being sacked by Barça in January 2020. He has spent the majority of his career in La Liga but had two spells at Olympiakos in Greece.

Last week Gennaro Gattuso, the former Italy midfielder, became the latest in an increasingly long line of candidates to fall by the wayside. Tottenham were close to appointing Paulo Fonseca after a contract had been verbally agreed with the former Roma and Shakhtar Donetsk manager, only for the deal to collapse, according to sources close to him, because of issues relating to tax. Spurs had previously called off talks with Antonio Conte.

Mourinho was sacked on 19 April, with Ryan Mason placed in interim charge until the end of last season.

Tottenham Hotspur name Nuno Espirito Santo as new manager

Tottenham Hotspur have named Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

ESPN had previously reported on Espirito Santo's discussions to take over at the north London club.

- Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S. only)

Espirito Santo left Wolverhampton Wanderers after four seasons where they achieved promotion to the Premier League in 2018 after a six-year absence and retained their status as a top flight side over three seasons. He previously also managed Valencia and Porto.

"When you have a squad with quality and talent, we want to make the fans proud and enjoy," he said in a statement on the Tottenham website.

"It's an enormous pleasure and honour, there's joy and I'm happy and looking forward to starting work. We don't have any days to lose and we must start working immediately as preseason starts in a few days."

Espirito Santo's appointment comes after Tottenham hired Fabio Paratici as their new director of football earlier this month. The 48-year-old was previously the chief football officer at Juventus for 11 years.

Espirito Santo, 47, was close to taking over at Crystal Palace before talks collapsed and became the latest recommendation by Paratici, who is believed to have a good relationship with Nuno's agent, Jorge Mendes.

Paratici and Espirito Santo met with club chairman Daniel Levy on Wednesday to finalise the deal. Paratici has driven the appointment having wanted to take him to Juventus previously.

"I've spoken already about the need to revert back to our core DNA of playing attacking, entertaining football," Levy said. "Fabio and I believe Nuno is the man who can take our talented group of players, embrace our young players coming through and build something special."

Espirito Santo's appointment to take over the north London club ends what had become a convoluted and troubled search to succeed Jose Mourinho following his sacking in April. Among the candidates linked to Spurs the last several months had been Antonio Conte, Gennaro Gattuso, Paulo Fonseca, Brendan Rodgers, Julian Nagelsmann, and Erik ten Hag.

Spurs appointed 29-year-old coach Ryan Mason as interim boss until the end of the season after Mourinho's exit and the club began drawing up a list of candidates.

Rodgers has a contract until 2025 and showed no interest in leaving Leicester City while Nagelsmann opted to leave RB Leipzig for Bayern Munich, leaving Spurs to sound out former boss Mauricio Pochettino over whether he would be tempted to rejoin the club from Paris Saint-Germain.

However, sources told ESPN that Pochettino never asked to leave the Ligue 1 club, who in any case exercised an option to extend his contract by a further year to 2023.

Ten Hag has also extended his deal to stay at Ajax amid interest from Spurs.

Discussions with early front-runner Conte -- fresh off of winning the Serie A title with Inter Milan -- failed to deliver any progress, prompting the club to enter into discussions with other candidates.

Spurs got as close as drafting a contract for ex-Roma manager Fonseca -- two years with an option for a further 12 months -- before pulling out at the 11th hour and turning their attentions to Gennaro Gattuso after he surprisingly left Fiorentina. However, a backlash among supporters to Gattuso's possible appointment led to Spurs starting again in their search.

Tottenham begin their new league campaign at home to champions Manchester City on Aug. 15.

Next Spurs manager: Daniel Levy wanted a 'bigger name' amid Potter & Martinez update

Brighton and Hove Albion manager Graham Potter has admirers within the Tottenham Hotspur squad, according to a report on the print edition of yesterday's Sunday People (page 62). 

What's the latest Tottenham manager news?

They claim there is a belief from within the Spurs camp that the 46-year-old's philosophy would suit the club's style. 

Initially, chairman Daniel Levy was said to want to bring in a bigger name than Potter amid links with a move for the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte, although he is no longer working from the shortlist. 

Former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been strongly linked with the job after a protracted search to replace Jose Mourinho, while the report also suggests Belgium manager Roberto Martinez could still get the job. 

Football Terrace: The Done Deal Show gives you all the latest on Harry Kane's potential move to Manchester City...

What is Potter's style of play? 

During an interview with Sky Sports in February, Potter talked about how he was keen to stick to his ideals, even if Brighton's league position pointed to a struggle.

"If you lose football matches, people want something else and pretty quickly things can unravel," he said. 

"You have seen it many times before. People change playing styles and want to go down a different direction. But that does not always work in a positive way.

"I witnessed in Ostersund how an identity, how a clarity, can give you alignment with everything and that can give you a significant advantage over a period of time."

Indeed, the piece talked up his team's ability to 'consistently' create more chances than their opponents, as well as their transformation into 'a front-foot team with more in common with the elite sides than their fellow strugglers'. 

According to FBREF data, only seven teams averaged more shots per game than Brighton (12.53) and Potter's side finished behind just the so-called 'Big Six' plus Leeds United in terms of passes attempted (19456). 

Defensively, Brighton boasted the joint-third highest pressing success rate (31.6%) behind Manchester City and Leicester. 

Would that suit Tottenham? 

On paper, yes. 

Attacking football backed by a high-pressing team typified Pochettino's Spurs and Levy has spoken about returning to the club's values and traditions after the Mourinho experiment failed. 

Clearly, things rarely work as easily as that and, even if Potter did start to implement his own style on Spurs' squad, he'd still have a long way to go before matching the aforementioned Argentine's exploits. 

However, it's clear Spurs are in need of a rebuild and perhaps moving for a man who has shown ab ability to help transform a team's style could help get things back on track long-term.

Tottenham next manager odds – Potter favourite for Spurs job if Nuno is sacked, Lampard, Gerrard & Pochettino in the mix

GRAHAM POTTER is the frontrunner to become Tottenham's next permanent manager.

That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who've installed the highly-rated Brighton boss at 3/1 to replace Nuno Espirito Santo.

Graham Potter is favourite to be appointed Tottenham's next manager



However, there are plenty of other candidates tipped to challenge including Brendan Rodgers, Eddie Howe and Mauricio Pochettino.

Nuno was appointed on a two-year deal in June after a turbulent search to replace Jose Mourinho.

And things couldn't have started better for the 47-year-old, who claimed August's Manager of the Month.

His side were top of the division after beating Manchester City, Wolves and Watford in his opening three Premier League fixtures.

But Tottenham's form has taken a nosedive.

Spurs have lost three-consecutive top-flight fixtures including a 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Arsenal on Sunday.

Tottenham next manager

Betfair odds

  • Graham Potter - 3/1
  • Brendan Rodgers - 9/2
  • Eddie Howe - 5/1
  • Mauricio Pochettino - 6/1
  • Roberto Martinez - 15/2
  • Scott Parker - 9/1
  • Erik ten Hag - 10/1
  • Simone Inzaghi - 10/1
  • Julen Lopetegui - 10/1
  • Jurgen Klinsmann - 14/1
  • Antonio Conte - 14/1
  • Steven Gerrard - 17/1
  • Ernesto Valverde - 20/1
  • Lucien Favre - 25/1
  • Paulo Fonseca - 25/1
  • Frank Lampard - 25/1
  • John Terry - 35/1


They've recorded the second-lowest attempts on goal in the Premier League - five less than rock-bottom Norwich.

Supporters are growing frustrated and Nuno's odds of being the first manager sacked this season have shortened from 40/1 to 9/1.

If chairman Daniel Levy pulls the trigger - Brighton's Potter is the standout favourite.

Potter has enjoyed a tremendous start to the campaign with the Seagulls having won four of their opening five fixtures.

The 46-year-old was on Spurs' four-man shortlist over the summer before Nuno was appointed.

Elsewhere Brendan Rodgers is available at 9/2 with former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe a 5/1 shot.

A sensational return for Mauricio Pochettino is offered at 6/1 with Roberto Martinez and Scott Parker priced at 15/2 and 9/1 respectively.

Erik ten Hag, Simone Inzaghi and Julen Lopetegui are all 10/1.

England legends Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard also also in the picture at 17/1 and 25/1 with John Terry the outsider of the group at 35s.

Sarri, Nagelsmann, Rodgers, Benitez? - Who will be appointed new Tottenham manager?

Tottenham Hotspur have a new permanent head coach. Or at least, that’s what everyone WANTS you to think. Paulo Fonseca has been the Head Coach in Waiting for at least a week now, but it’s not really clear when he’s actually going to take charge. Past reports suggested that yesterday was the day we’d get an official announcement from the club, but yesterday came and went with no announcement. There were also reports that we’d see something by “next week” sometime.

Now, according to Alasdair Gold, it’s “before the end of the month.”

It seems as though Fonseca is currently on holiday in Ukraine, which makes sense — Fonseca’s wife is Ukrainian and maybe they’ve had this planned for a while now. (I know my family would be irritated if my job forced me to have to cancel a planned family vacation because of work responsibilities.) Gold also mooted the possibility that Italian tax law is forcing Fonseca to “wait until the end of the second year of his contract start date in Italy before officially beginning a job in a new country” in order to get the big sports tax break.

Whatever the reason, he’s still not here and won’t be for a bit. That means that Spurs are in a weird position where they have a new head coach, but also DON’T have a new head coach. Schrödinger’s Manager, anyone?

Could Potter Weave Some Magic at Tottenham?

The betting apps now make Graham Potter the most likely man to replace Nuno Espirito Santo, with the Brighton & Hove Albion manager having enjoyed a strong start to the 2021-22 campaign, with the Seagulls flying high near the top of the Premier League table.

Potter has enjoyed an interesting career trajectory which saw him take charge of Swedish club Ostersunds and perform a magic act with them to qualify for European football, with the Englishman then managing Swansea City before Brighton came calling for him as their replacement for Chris Hughton.

It's logical to assume that chairman Daniel Levy might look in Potter's direction should things continue to go awry under Nuno and the former's stock is certainly rising considering that he's not had a huge amount of money to spend at the AMEX Stadium.

Brendan Rodgers Might Have Taken Leicester As Far As He Can

Brendan Rodgers might not have achieved the ultimate aim of securing Champions League football for Leicester, although he landed the FA Cup with the Foxes last term and it might be that the Northern Irishman feels as though he's taken the Midlands club as far as he can.

Leicester have struggled to get going this season and a 2-2 draw against Burnley means they sit thirteenth in the Premier League table after a modest return of seven points from six games played. Jamie Vardy continues to bang in the goals, although it's already a tall order to see them challenging for the Champions League spots again.

Rodgers has previously enjoyed the Midas touch at the King Power Stadium since deciding to call time on his role at Celtic to take charge at the Midlands club and it’s hardly a surprise to see the former Liverpool manager linked with the Tottenham role considering that he’s achieved a great deal on a modest budget at Leicester.

The Foxes have twice narrowly missed out on a Premier League top four spot which would have meant Champions League football this term and the club also won their first ever FA Cup after beating Chelsea in the final, with Rodgers having made Leicester into one of the best football teams in England since taking charge.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham make an official approach for someone who isn’t short of ambition and will want to continue his successful managerial career at a club who have the potential to challenge for major domestic honours, although Rodgers might decide he’s better off sticking with his current club.

Eddie Howe Could Throw His Hat into the Spurs Ring

It might be the case that we always regard Eddie Howe as a one-club wonder, with the 43-year-old inextricably linked to his time in charge at Bournemouth. The former defender enjoyed two stints with the Dorset club and the second spell saw him lift the Cherries up two divisions to the Premier League before keeping the team afloat for several seasons.

Howe has previously been linked with the Celtic job and he left the Vitality Stadium at the end of the 2019-20 campaign after Bournemouth were relegated. Since then, he has been keeping a low-profile for the past few months, although his age suggests that he isn’t ready to walk away from football management just yet and we might see him lined up as Nuno’s eventual replacement.

While some supporters might regard Howe as a risk considering that he’s only ever worked with modest budgets and not had too much pressure or expectation on his shoulders, he has commanded a strong reputation in the football world and would once again appeal to fans who want to see their team play vibrant attacking football which seems to be vanishing under the current manager.

Roberto Martínez Might Look to Switch From Belgium

Roberto Martinez has been in charge of the Belgian national football team since 2016 although at the age of 47, he might well be eyeing a return to the bread-and-butter of club management, with the Spaniard currently trading among the betting favourites to replace Nuno.

Martinez is considered to have done a good job with the Red Devils although he did inherit a talented crop of players which made it to the semi-final stage of the 2018 World Cup and that run included a victory over Brazil before a slender defeat to eventual champions France. At Euro 2020, Belgium overcame Portugal in the knockout stage before losing to eventual winners Italy.

Martinez has previously managed Everton in the top flight, while he also won the FA Cup with Wigan Athletic, although his time at Goodison Park came to a slightly sorry end and the attacking style of football regularly saw the Toffees exposed, with the manager having been unable to steer them any higher than 12th during his final campaign.

Ten Hag Waiting in the Wings

Erik ten Hag has previously occupied the top of the next Tottenham manager betting market, with the Dutchman currently in charge of Ajax and he’s had a successful time of things with the leading Netherlands club, although it might now be the case that he’s ready for a bigger challenge with a larger volume of resources at his disposal.

The 51-year-old has been in charge at the Amsterdam club since 2017 and steered Ajax to the Champions League semi-finals two seasons ago before they were actually thwarted by Spurs after holding a commanding lead, with the Dutch side having previously knocked out Real Madrid and Juventus.

Ten Hag has been linked to high-profile English clubs before and has also spent time coaching at Bayern Munich where he was in charge of the second team at the Allianz Arena, with some betting sites making him the favourite to land the Spurs manager job.

Could Pochettino Return to Tottenham?

It would be a real turn up for the books if we saw Mauricio Pochettino return to the north London club considering he parted company with Tottenham nearly two years ago, although perhaps Daniel Levy now realises it might have been a mistake to let the Argentine leave.

Poch is currently in charge of Paris Saint-Germain although a failure to win Ligue 1 along with a Champions League semi-final defeat against Manchester City has put him behind the eight-ball and perhaps he might be yearning for a return to a club that he steered to several top-four finishes and a Champions League final.

Bookmakers' Next Permanent Manager Markets

Would Tottenham Take a Punt on Parker?

Scott Parker is now among the Spurs manager betting favourites and it would be a calculated gamble should chairman Daniel Levy decide to install someone whose sum managerial experience has taken place at Fulham and Bournemouth. The Cottagers veered between the Premier League and the Championship under his guardianship.

Although Parker is largely regarded as having done a good job at Craven Cottage, it would be a massive step up should he take charge of a team who underachieved last season based on expectation levels, with the former Tottenham midfielder having to get the best out of leading players such as Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min, although Harry Kane might respond to his coaching.

Despite recently taking charge of the Cherries, there is little doubt that Parker would jump at the chance to take this managerial role and perhaps Levy has been impressed by the way that he's quickly got a tune out of Bournemouth this season..

Conte Among Favourites After Going Close Last Time

Antonio Conte famously won the Premier League title with Chelsea FC and perhaps the Italian is ready to return to London in an attempt to repeat the trick with a Tottenham Hotspur squad who are packed with quality players despite the fact that they have largely been in underachievement mode for the past few seasons.

The 51-year-old has just won the 2020/21 Serie A title with Internazionale and Conte decided that he achieved the ultimate aim with the Milan club. Let’s not forget that he was able to steer Juventus to three successive Scudettos between 2012-14.

Conte is noticeably animated as a manager and has also enjoyed a stint in charge of the Italian national team, with his stock incredibly higher after toppling Juve domestically this season and ending their long stranglehold when it comes to the Serie A table.

Could Steven Gerrard Be on the Tottenham Shortlist?

It’s fair to say that Steven Gerrard has made a huge impression north of the border, with the former Liverpool captain having landed the Scottish Premiership title with Rangers, who went the league season unbeaten, and he has cemented his name in Old Firm folklore by ending the Celtic stranglehold in Scotland.

Gerrard has gone about his business at Ibrox extremely smartly and the 41-year-old will look for his team to challenge heavily in the Europa League this term, although it would be interesting to see if the Liverpudlian was open to the prospect of taking charge at White Hart Lane and testing himself in the Premier League.

It’s patently clear that the former England midfielder wants to be the next manager of Liverpool but it seems as though the Anfield hot seat won’t be vacant for several years to come. However, the chance to manage Spurs could be an attractive one and it’s clear that Gerrard has thrived at Rangers despite massive pressure and expectations at the Old Firm club.

Is It Too Late to Say Sarri For Spurs Job?

Another of the early favourites in the Tottenham manager betting was Maurizio Sarri, with the Italian being backed to return to England after previously being in charge at Chelsea FC. The 62-year-old has been out of work since being replaced as Juventus manager by Andrea Pirlo at the beginning of the 2020/21 season, although it appears that the Italian is open to the prospect of the Spurs role.

Sarri is a highly-respected European football coach who has a wealth of experience, having started his managerial career in 1990, with the manager really catching the eye during his reign at Napoli which saw him crowned Serie A coach of the year during the 2016-17 campaign.

While he arrived at Chelsea with a reputation for playing dynamic football, it was often the case that the Blues were a fairly low-scoring side during his tenure, although he did win the Europa League with the London side during the 2018-19 campaign and also steered the team through to the EFL Cup final in the same season.

Inzaghi Now In Charge of Inter Milan

From seemingly out of nowhere, Simone Inzaghi previously leapt to the head of the Spurs manager market in the summer. There was widespread media speculation linking the Italian to the White Hart Lane hot seat following the departure of Jose Mourinho.

Inzaghi had been in charge at the Stadio Olimpico since 2016 and he’s something of a Lazio legend having helped the club to land the Serie A title as a player during the 1999-2000 season, while he has steered the Rome club to a Coppa Italia success during the 2018-19 season along with two Supercoppa Italiana successes in 2017 and 2019.

However, Inzaghi has recently taken charge at Inter Milan and might not have an appetite to England at this moment in time. There is likely to have been talks last summer where the 45-year-old passed up the chance to take charge and he's only ever known professional football in Italy.
