Tottenham’s managerial search has taken another unexpected twist as former AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso is now in advanced talks.

Paulo Fonseca was on the verge of replacing Jose Mourinho in north London following successful talks over the last few weeks since Antonio Conte’s move to north London collapsed, but Spurs pulled the plug on the ex-Roma boss at the very last.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Fonseca had verbally agreed to become Tottenham’s new manager, but the deal fell through due right at the death due to tax issues.

Romano then confirmed that Spurs’ attention swiftly turned to Gattuso, who only left his post at Fiorentina last week after a 22-day stint.

Gattuso, who’s managed both AC Milan and Napoli previously, won the Coppa Italia in 2020 with the latter before he was sacked and then hired by Fiorentina last month, is now in advanced talks and is expected to sign a two-year contract should the deal go through.



  1. Levy showing what a rubbish chairman he really is. The stadium spend doubled in price now after sacking the manager he can’t get a new one. What a embarrassing club we have become under this clown. Every fan laughing at us. I hope no one takes the job.

  2. At what point does Daniel Levy accept that Paratici is a terrible appointment? Conte? No. Donnarumma? No. Fonseca? No. [email protected] Gatttuso? For spurs? Theres the joe jordan thing even if we pretend gattuso isnt a horrible manager…

    This paratici is absolutely ridiculous so far.

    Get Ten Hag. Give him :

    Pau Torres to replace Vertonghen
    Teun Koopmeiners to replace Dembele
    Matheus Pereira to replace Eriksen
    Daichi Kamada to replace Lamela
    Leo Dubois to replace Aurier
    Dusan Vlahovic to replace Kane

    BOOM – top side in the making, football we can actually watch and combinations that can get results

  3. Just when we think that there is nothing else to add to this circus, we are hit with another act.Not sure it will ever stop.
    Actually thinking of applying for the job myself but don’t think I really want to take it.
    How about giving it to the local village idiot; would work a treat with our retarded chairman.

    • Very interested to hear the views of the people who praise levy and say he is a great chairman. Would love to hear how they can defend him and enic on the manager thing. A complete joke.

  4. Gattuso left Fiorentina 23 days into his new job because of “disagreements on transfers”.
    Best if he doesn’t even start négociations with us as if he takes the job,he will leave after 23 hours.

  5. If you are going to interview Italians for the Managerial job then you are going backwards. Give Mason the job and spend what is saved on getting defenders and influential midfielders.
