The new Spurs manager will need to look closely at the current squad and consider who has a future at the club. To an extent, his job has been started for him with Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka leaving the club but there may be some fans’ favourites under particular threat.
The Evening Standard claims that West Ham are monitoring the situation closely with a view to making a move for William Gallas.
The French centre half joined us on a free, two seasons ago and showed all his class at the heart of defence when he appeared on the pitch. Last season however he was dogged by injury and rarely featured.
One of the first areas the new boss will need to overhaul is the defence. Ageing and injury prone for some time now, we were down to fielding our only fit players in the centre and surely this won’t continue.
Gallas could still do a job as cover but will he be allowed, or even want to do so?
