Tottenham have pulled out of talks with Gennaro Gattuso over the club’s vacant managerial post, according to reports.

Yesterday, Fabrizio Romano and others revealed Spurs had opened discussions with Gattuso following the Italian’s departure from Fiorentina after just 22 days in charge.

However, now it seems Tottenham have decided against appointing the controversial figure.

Romano suggested there had been ‘positive’ talks between Spurs and Gattuso’s people on Thursday evening – but then came the backlash.

A social media campaign branded with the hashtag “#NoToGattuso” began to trend soon after the reports of his imminent appointment surfaced.

The Supporters’ Trust even moved to assure its members they had made the club aware of fan concerns.

And now, The Athletic is claiming Spurs have pulled the plug on a move to bring in Gattuso, citing the ‘huge backlash’ as a possible reason.

All of which means Tottenham’s long, long search for a new manager continues – who on earth will be next?

A new director of football is in place in the form of Fabio Paratici, but Spurs will surely be unable to move forward with their transfer plans until a new manager is appointed.

With that in mind, there is increasing pressure on Paratici and chairman Daniel Levy to bring somebody in quickly.



  1. What a bunch of over paid useless plonkers the gang at spurs are. From the owner, the chairman, the board and now the managing director of football. To be honest I hope no one takes the job just to make them look even more ridiculous than they already are. #thewholelotout.

  2. What a joke our once great club has become; it is like a tv soap.
    It is obvious why Paratici has been brought in- so that Levy can pin the blame on him as we all know that Levy is never wrong…
    No half decent coach is going to want to join us as 10th or lower choice(am talking about Potter, Parker etc .. who as far as I know have as yet not been approached), so it very much looks like we will have to promote from within..
    Levy has been found out but might well be on his way to becoming a famous film producer with this extraordinary soap.
