Tottenham are once again linked with manager who was close to taking the job in 2021

By Mehdi Gokal -

Paulo Fonseca is the latest manager to be linked with Spurs and he is not a name new to Tottenham fans.

Fonseca had previously been linked with the job when Jose Mourinho was sacked, but the club eventually appointed Nuno Espirito Santo instead.

Fonseca, the former AS Roma and Shakhtar Donetsk manager, had claimed that he and Paratici don’t share the same principles, raising questions about how well the two would work together at Spurs.

Fonseca revealed to RMC Sport about why his move to Spurs back in 2021 failed:

“After my departure from Roma, everything was closed (with Tottenham), everything was almost finalised.

“But there was the arrival of a new general manager (Fabio Paratici) who opted for another coach (Nuno Espirito Santo).

“It was done at the last moment but that’s football. It’s a matter of choice.”

And now, according to a latest report by But! Football Club, Spurs are once again interested in hiring him.

And this time around, Fabio Paratici will not be around who had to resign following his ban on football activities by Italian football which was extended globally by FIFA.

It will be interesting to see how the situation develops in the coming weeks, as Spurs weigh up their options and look to make the right decision for the club’s future.

Pressure will be on Daniel Levy to get the appointment right. Who becomes the new manager is also going to have an impact on Harry Kane’s future at the club which remains uncertain at the moment with the likes of Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and PSG lurking around.
