Doh’ I managed to permanently delete the second half of the recording, apologies for the rather cold ending.
I understand from a source close to the club, Tottenham had been unhappy with José Mourinho for many months. The honeymoon bonhomie of ‘All or Nothing’ didn’t last long.
Alas, the hunt for a replacement for an increasingly frustrating situation for both parties was not a hurried one. First choice Julian Nagelsmann had already made plans by the time Spurs reached out.
Next up is Ten Hag, who did NOT interview badly as some have suggested. In fact, that conversation was short and sweet, because again, of time lost. Mourinho was sacked on April 19th and by May 2nd, Ten Hag had not just won the Eredivisie but triggered a year extension from Ajax as a result.
The respect between Spurs and Ajax is high and mutual. So there were never any thoughts of an audacious raid or some such.
Ten Hag to Spurs could happen if Ajax can or indeed are willing to find a replacement.
Conte discussions did happen, but so much ‘info’ was invented it beggars belief. Those talks were very brief. Very.
Poch discussions absolutely did not happen – total fiction.
