Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and Luis Enrique are open to the idea of holding discussions over the possibility of the former Barcelona man replacing Antonio Conte at the end of the season.
The Italian’s contract ends at then end of the season and there seems to be no indications that he will be extending his stay at the club. The club have already started looking for replacements with a number of different managers linked with the job.
According to The Times, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and Luis Enrique are ‘open’ to the idea of discussing the possibility of the Spaniard taking over the reins at the North London club. Enrique, who has previously been labelled as one of the best coaches by Pep Guardiola, is said to be very interested in a job in the Premier League and would be ‘open’ to any approach from Tottenham.
The 52-year-old Enrique, who won the “World’s Best Coach” award in 2014/15 with Barcelona, has an attacking style of play and his preferred formation is a 4-3-3. He won nine trophies with Barcelona, including the Champions League. His pedigree and successful track record may be able to convince Tottenham’s star striker Harry Kane to sign a new contract with the club and attract big name players.
Tottenham have also been linked with former manager Mauricio Pochettino, who had a successful stint at the club before departing for Paris Saint-Germain. However, some senior figures at the club are said to be against the idea of bringing Pochettino back to Tottenham.
Enrique is reportedly the favoured candidate of Tottenham’s new managing director of football, Fabio Paratici. With Paratici’s support and Daniel Levy’s interest in Enrique’s attacking style, the Spaniard could be a strong contender for the Tottenham job.
It remains to be seen who will be appointed as Tottenham’s next manager, but the club is said to be determined to find a suitable candidate who can lead them to success in the Premier League and in Europe. With Enrique’s impressive track record, he could be the man for the job.
