Within a day of officially announcing their inclusion in the long standing and much debated European Super League (ESL), Tottenham Hotspur parted ways with manager Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff in an official club statement giving rise to speculations regarding who is going to replace the 58 year old manager and satisfy the ambitious chairman and fans of the club.
Here’s the list of managers believed to be favourites to take on the Spurs job next-

Brendan Rodgers

The 48 year old Northern Irish manager is one of the most favourite candidate to be announced as the new Spurs boss starting next season. Currently managing Leicester City, Rodgers has got his side to a FA Cup final and the 3rd spot in the premier league, resulting in him getting a lot of praise from the pundits as well as the fans.

Following a successful progressive year at Leicester, Daniel Levy would be eyeing to obtain his services as Spurs look to end their 13 year trophy less run. Rodgers is famously remembered for the 2013/14 season with Liverpool when they were the favourites to win the title until that famous Steven Gerrard slip against Chelsea and the 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace where they blew a 3-0 lead and slipped to the 2nd spot, eventually losing out the league to Manchester City. Notably, Rodgers is yet to win his maiden trophy in England whilst winning 7 of them in Scotland with Celtic.

Julian Nagelsmann

The talismanic coach of German club RB Leipzig is one of the most bright young coaches in Europe famous for his high pressing, attacking football and tactical variations. The 33 year old German coach previously managed Hoffenheim where he took over mid season and saved the then 17th placed team in Bundesliga from relegation in the 2015/16 season. In the following season he shocked the footballing world by taking his club from 15th the earlier season to 4th and qualified for the champions league for the first time in their history.

He has also knocked out Tottenham as manager of RB Leipzig from the Champions League in 2019/20 defeating Jose Mourinho’s men 4-0 aggregate over two legs, leaving a positive impression over the Spurs board. Although, signing Nagelsmann might turn out to be difficult for Spurs as he is also tipped to be the number one preference of Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich as they look to replace Hansi Flick who is looking to leave Bayern at the end of the season and join the German national team after the Euros later this year.

Massimiliano Allegri

The Italian stallion is known for being a serial-winner and is one of the most successful managers of all time in Italy winning the Serie A 6 times, including 5 back to back titles with Juventus. While his winning mentality and past records favour him to be the one who takes the North London club to glory, his pragmatic approach and defensive brand of football can be a concern for Daniel Levy as he would be looking to avoid the same mistake he made with Jose Mourinho, ending up with the players and fans turning on the Portuguese.

On a break from management since he left Juventus at the end of a successful 2018/19 season, Allegri must be looking to get back in action next season and extend his streak of winning trophies.

Who is it going to be? We still don’t have an answer but whoever it will be would have a tough job coming in as his first task would be to convince local lad turned superstar Harry Kane to extend his stay with The Lilywhites and work to get success in his first season itself given Daniel Levy’s no nonsense approach which he showed by sacking Jose Mourinho after just 17 months of joining them – 6 DAYS BEFORE A CUP FINAL.
