Tottenham Hotspur make “casual request” to speak with this man about managerial vacancy

Tottenham Hotspur have made a “casual request” to speak with Julian Nagelsmann about their managerial vacancy. The German was recently relieved of his duties at Bayern Munich and is reportedly the leading candidate among a 10-man shortlist to replace Antonio Conte at Spurs.

However, no concrete talks or negotiations have taken place between the two parties, and Nagelsmann is expected to take time over a decision about his future.

During his 20-month spell as Bayern head coach, Nagelsmann won 60 of his 84 games in charge across all competitions, while he managed to get his hands on last season’s Bundesliga title and two German Super Cups. Prior to managing Bayern, Nagelsmann spent three years at Hoffenheim and two years at RB Leipzig.

If Tottenham fail in their pursuit of Nagelsmann, they may look to target former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique, who is currently out of work after leaving his post as Spain head coach after the 2022 World Cup.

The likes of Porto’s Sergio Conceicao, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Oliver Glasner, Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou, and Brighton & Hove Albion’s Roberto De Zerbi have also been linked with the Spurs managerial vacancy.

Spurs announced on Sunday night that head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual consent after just 16 months in charge. Cristian Stellini – Conte’s former number two – has since been promoted to take the reins until the end of the season, with Ryan Mason acting as assistant coach.

Conte departs the North London club after enduring disappointing FA Cup and Champions League exits earlier this month before a 3-3 draw away at Premier League basement club Southampton sparked a scathing attack by the Italian on his players and the club’s hierarchy.

Daniel Levy is now set to embark on a busy few months as he searches for Conte’s successor, and a host of managers have already been linked with the Spurs vacancy.
