After the separation of Antonio Conte at the English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, according to media reports, Julian Nagelsmann, who has just been released from FC Bayern, is one of the top candidates for the vacant post. As the “Daily Mail” reports, club boss Daniel Levy wants to talk to the 35-year-old about possible availability. Nagelsmann had just been replaced in Munich by Thomas Tuchel, who had been the Spurs’ new coach for a long time.
The London club announced the immediate separation from the Italian on Sunday evening. A step that had long been expected after Conte’s angry speech after the 3: 3 at bottom FC Southampton a week earlier. The former Chelsea FC manager, for example, described his players as “selfish” and accused them of not being able to play under pressure. This also has something to do with the history of the club, which had only won the League Cup once since 1991 (2008).
For the time being, Conte’s assistant coach Cristian Stellini will take over the coaching job. Fourth in the table, the Spurs are still fighting for a place in the Champions League. In addition to Nagelsmann, other prominent names are traded, especially Mauricio Pochettino enjoys an excellent reputation at Tottenham. The Argentine coached the club between 2014 and 2019, leading them to the Champions League final, among other things. Pochettino would currently be available immediately.
Again and again the name of Frankfurt’s Oliver Glasner is mentioned. The Austrian enjoys an excellent reputation after winning the Europa League last year, and there was also a clash between Spurs and Eintracht in the Champions League preliminary round. Glasner still has a contract in Frankfurt that runs until 2024 and has recently been very dissatisfied with the performance of his team. Another candidate in Tottenham is said to be Luis Enrique, who quit as national coach after the disappointing World Cup with Spain.
For club boss Levy there is also another problem to be solved. Goalscorer and club legend Harry Kane’s contract expires in 2024. The striker is associated with record champions Manchester United, and FC Bayern is also being traded as a possible new employer.
