Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly targeting former Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann as their next manager following the disappointing tenure of Antonio Conte. Nagelsmann became available after his shock sacking by Bayern Munich, where he was replaced by former Chelsea head coach, Thomas Tuchel. Spurs considered Tuchel as a possible replacement for Conte, but they are now setting their sights on the 33-year-old coach Nagelsmann.
This is not the first time that the English club has been interested in Nagelsmann. Last year, they also pursued him, but he had already set his sights on Bayern Munich from Red Bull Leipzig. Nagelsmann won the Bundesliga title in his first season with Bayern Munich, and the club is currently second in the table. However, following erratic results and performances since the World Cup, the club decided to let Nagelsmann go.
Spurs’ next manager will inherit a team that is currently struggling in the Premier League, currently sitting at seventh place with seven points behind Chelsea, who is in fourth place. The next manager will also face another tough decision as the Spurs face Manchester City in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The club has also shown interest in several other managers to replace Conte. One of the popular choices among fans is Mauricio Pochettino, a former Spurs manager, but it is unclear if he or the club would want an emotional reunion. Other potential candidates include Luis Enrique, Roberto De Zerbi, Rúben Amorim, and Vincent Kompany.
In any case, the next Spurs manager is going to have to work hard to bring back the glory days of the London club. With a talented squad, the right coaching, and a bit of luck, Spurs could once again become top contenders for domestic and international titles.
