Antonio Conte and the Spurs had a mutual agreement to part ways as it seemed that the two sides had nothing in common for a long time. The only question remaining is: who will be the next Tottenham manager? The team stated that Conte’s assistant, Christian Stellini, will take charge of the team for the rest of the season as acting head coach, with Ryan Mason his assistant head coach. It is unlikely though to keep this position though, as the club searches already for the next permanent manager.
The hottest name is of course Julian Nagelsmann. Despite being sacked by Bayern Munich recently, the German head coach helped the team qualify in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, winning every game possible. He left the club just one point behind Borussia Dortmund ahead of Der Klassiker on April 1st. Thomas Tuchel (a well-considered Conte replacement) was appointed as Bayern’s new manager, leaving many players in awe.
Some consider it a better choice to trust the “new blood” in terms of coaching experience. Ryan Mason was Conte’s assistant, but he also served the club as a player. He ended his career prematurely due to a serious head injury back in 2017. He now has the chance to learn near Stellini and be a considerable candidate for the next Tottenham manager.
Next on the line is a familiar face. Mauricio Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham in 2019, after spending five years in the club as head coach. He was then appointed by PSG, also winning the Ligue 1 title. He is the most famous choice amongst the fans, as he knows exactly the pros and cons of the club. It remains to be seen if the board will choose Pochettino, a manager without a job since July 2022.
The others worth mentioning are Luis Enrique, Thomas Frank and Roberto De Zerbi. Enrique hasn’t worked since stepping away for a Spain job. The only problem is that he hasn’t managed a club since 2017, meaning that he will have much to prove. Frank and De Zerbi are worshipped as Gods at their respective clubs, Brentford and Brighton. They would risk leaving their work in progress to move to one of the most problematic benches in the Premier League. The same applies to Oliver Glanser and Ange Postecoglou, two coaches who would choose to move to England only for the Premier League spotlight.
