Spurs want Nagelsmann to replace Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur are keen on appointing Julian Nagelsmann, currently the head coach at RB Leipzig, to replace the recently sacked Jose Mourinho, according to The Telegraph.

Amid everything that has been going on since the announcement of creation of the so-called ‘European Super League’, Spurs chose to sack Mourinho on Monday morning, with many believing the two things to be related. However, the North-London club have dismissed such rumours, insisting that the Portuguese had lost his job purely due to recent poor results.

Spurs have appointed former midfielder Ryan Mason as a temporary solution,  and they apparently see Nagelsmann as a worthy candidate for the permanent job. They could, however, face competition for his services from Bayern Munich, with Hans-Dieter Flick leaving the Bavarians at the end of the season. It seems that Bayern’s interest in Nagelsmann had accelerated the already existing plans of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to replace Mourinho.

If, however, the 33-year-old coach proves unobtainable, Spurs could move for England boss Gareth Southgate, Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, Fulham’s Scott Parker, or Swansea City’s Steve Cooper.
