The Tottenham Hotspur permanent manager drama goes on and on in the recent couple of months, because of the board’s indecisiveness to pick the best possible candidate in the market. The reports have included many names such as Thomas Franck, Julian Nagellsmann and Ryan Mason, but with the club almost out of next season’s European football (Tottenham is one point behind 7th Aston Villa with one game remaining for both teams) it is extremely hard to lure a great name.
Arne Slot had a fantastic season with Feyenoord, both in Eredivisie and the Europa League. Feyenoord have been crowned champions for the first time since 2016-2017. The Pride of South reached the Europa League quarter-finals and was eliminated by Mourinho’s Roma in the extra time.
Slot could cash on this success with a Premier League move, coaching one of the top-6 teams in the country. It is understood that the Spurs want to appoint a new supporting director before deciding on Conte’s permanent replacement. Slot is the favourite candidate for that position and he wants the job, despite losing the chance to compete with Feyenoord in the Champions League next season. He and his manager are in constant talks with Feyenoord on his future with the club at a point in time where Spurs are on the brink of approaching him formally.
That leaves him alone at the top of the odds list. Luciano Spalletti could enter this discussion, but this is not a possible scenario right now. He is reportedly considering resigning from Napoli’s job after the first Serie A in over 30 years. Daniel Levy already stated that Luciano Spalletti to be the next Tottenham manager is a serious “no”. Spalletti’s appointment could be the key to the club’s transformation, something that Spurs need much.
