Conte sack talk at Tottenham gathers pace as report names four options Daniel Levy will consider
Conte sacking speculation at Tottenham heats up as a newspaper identifies four potential replacements. Daniel Levy will think about it.
According to reports, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is already examining four possible replacements for Antonio Conte if the Italian is fired in the coming weeks.
Spurs are now fifth in the Premier League and have advanced to the round of 16 in the Champions League. However, all is not well at the club, and a rising number of fans are dissatisfied with the Italian tactician.
Indeed, Tottenham’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Sunday demonstrated a significant gap in class, as it was the club’s fourth home setback in just ten games this season.
And, with the supporters’ trust writing to Levy to express their displeasure with the club’s current course, it appears that all is not well for Tottenham. They are presently five points behind Manchester United in fourth place. With a trip to Manchester City on the horizon, Conte’s situation may worsen before it improves.
To add insult to injury, Paul Merson has gone all out for Conte, ripping apart a massive Tottenham disgrace.
Conte’s contract at Tottenham is set to end in the summer. He has repeatedly stated that he may leave the club, with his most recent suggestion coming a fortnight ago.
As a result, between now and the conclusion of the season, Levy will have plenty of time to think about Conte’s future at Tottenham.
Pochettino is Tottenham’s top choice to succeed Conte.
Former manager Mauricio Pochettino is at the top of Levy’s wish list.
During his five years at the leadership, the Argentine did miracles. After leading them to the 2019 Champions League, he was fired just a few months later due to an unexpected lack of form.
He has since returned to PSG after an extended absence. However, Pochettino’s stint as manager lasted only 18 months, as he left the Ligue 1 giants in the summer.
He has recently been linked with Chelsea and West Ham as potential replacements for Graham Potter and David Moyes, both of whom are under pressure.
He has, nevertheless, always expressed his affection for Tottenham. And if he feels he has unfinished business in north London, he might return to the club.
Pochettino, though, is not the only option that the source claims Levy is examining.
Furthermore, the Express adds that former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, whom Pochettino succeeded at PSG, could be considered.
Todd Boehly ruthlessly dismissed the German earlier this season at Chelsea. However, their current shape implies that the American made the wrong option.
He will be remembered at Stamford Bridge for leading Chelsea to Champions League victory.
He also seemed to enjoy life in London and would return there if the perfect opportunity arose.
According to the article, another German coach, Joachim Low, is also being considered by Tottenham.
He led Germany to World Cup victory in 2014 and will remain in charge until 2021. Low, now 62, has been out of job since England’s 2-0 victory over Germany at Euro 2020. As a result of this, his appointment by Spurs would likely be viewed as a surprise.
Another former international coach, Luis Enrique, is said to be on Tottenham’s radar.
Already being mentioned as a possible replacement for Diego Simeone, who is under fire at Atletico Madrid. As a result, Enrique is unlikely to be unemployed for long.
It remains to be seen whether a move to Tottenham would entice him.
During his three years in charge at the Nou Camp, he did, however, win nine titles. As such, he could be regarded as a wise choice for Levy.
