Alasdair Gold has confirmed that Tottenham are hoping to appoint a new manager before the end of the season.
It’s nine days since Daniel Levy called time on Jose Mourinho’s reign in north London, and Spurs have been linked with a host of potential replacements following his departure.
Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers appeared the two standout contenders, but the Leipzig coach will replace Hansi Flick at Bayern Munich, whilst Rodgers has confirmed that he wants to stay at Leicester, who’re above Tottenham in the table and in the FA Cup final.
Having missed out on those two targets, Ajax boss Erik ten Hag has emerged as the new favourite, although Gareth Southgate, Nuno Espirito, Scott Parker, Maurizio Sarri, Graham Potter and Eddie Howe have all been mentioned.
Interim head coach Ryan Mason will continue to lead the team for the final five Premier League matches, with just over three weeks until Spurs end their campaign at Leicester on 23 May.
And Gold believes that the Tottenham hierarchy are planning on having a new manager in place before then.
