Tottenham want to appoint a new manager in the next 7-10 days, according to Football London.
Ryan Mason has been in temporary charge ever since Jose Mourinho was sacked last month.
The interim head coach finished on a high on Sunday, leading Spurs to a 4-2 win at Leicester City to seal a somewhat undesirable place in next season’s Europa Conference League.
Nonetheless, the victory brought some much needed positivity at the end of a difficult campaign, and it seems the club will now press on with appointing a new manager.
Football London claims Tottenham have finally identified a leading candidate, who they want to appoint in the coming days – possibly by the end of the month.
The problem is that this mystery manager is currently employed elsewhere (as is Spurs’ second choice, apparently), so the Londoners will have to agree compensation to take him away from his current club.
All of which means things could drag on a bit longer than 7-10 days. Let’s just hope it isn’t too long so Tottenham can begin their summer transfer business as soon as possible.
