Tottenham begin looking for an AVB replacement, Yakin & Capello in the running [Telegraph + Mail]
- November 30, 2013
Are Andre Villas-Boas’ days numbered at White Hart Lane?
The Sunday Telegraph and Mail have both splashed the leading pages of their sports section by talking up the supposed imminent sacking of AVB from the Tottenham hotseat.
According to the papers, Daniel Levy is ready to wield the axe on his Portuguese manager following frustrations built up from Spurs’ big summer spending, the Lilywhites current position in the Premier League, and the humiliation that is still surrounding the club after their 6-0 whooping by Manchester City.
According to the Telegraph:
Among those Tottenham are believed to be considering as potential successors to Villas-Boas is Basel coach Murat Yakin, whose side beat Chelsea home and away in this season’s Champions League. Baldini was in Basel last Tuesday to watch the Swiss side win 1-0 against Joe Mourinho’s team.
Yakin’s future at Basel has been in some doubt even though the 39-year-old former defender will navigate the Swiss club into the last 16 of the Champions League is they avoid defeat against Schalke in their final tie.
Over in the Mail on Sunday another candidate is promoted for the Tottenham hotseat:
Fabio Capello has been mentioned in discussions at Tottenham as a shock candidate to take over if current boss Andre Villas-Boas is sacked.
