Reliable Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold has denied that Spurs want to replace Jose Mourinho with former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri.
The Italian has been out of work since leaving Juventus at the end of last season, and Sports Witness appeared to believe that Daniel Levy is lining up Sarri to replace Mourinho should he lose his job following increased speculation surrounding his future at Tottenham.
Pressed cranked up on the Spurs boss after Sunday’s defeat to Manchester United left his side six points behind the top four and in serious danger of missing out on European football for the first time since 2009.
But Gold said in a Q&A on Twitter that there’s no truth in the rumours linking Sarri to the north London outfit, whilst he expects Mourinho to stay until at least the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City later this month.
Sarri has a reasonably impressive track record at Chelsea, Napoli and Juventus, but should Mourinho get sacked, this isn’t a potential appointment we can see materialising.
