Tottenham decide against appointing Gennaro Gattuso as manager

Gennaro Gattuso

That’s right, there has been yet another twist in Tottenham’s hunt to find a replacement for Jose Mourinho, who was sacked all the way back in April.

Tottenham can’t find a manager

Thus far, a number of high-profile names have been linked with the Spurs bench.

Julian Nagelsmann was said to have been of interest to the north London outfit, but he is now set to take over at Bayern Munich.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers had also been tipped as a potential target, but he is thought to have confirmed that he is not interested in the job.

Ajax boss Erik ten Hag was too revealed to be of interest to the Lilywhites, but recently penned a contract extension with the Dutch club until 2023.

Atalanta’s Gian Piero Gasperini was linked with the job, but he quashed such rumours pretty quickly.

Antonio Conte was then named as a target at the back end of last month, but the Italian has since explained why he decided against joining Spurs.

However, it appeared as though Spurs’ long search for a Mourinho replacement had finally come to an end when it was reported on June 11th that former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca had agreed in principle to take over in north London.

Gattuso not joining Tottenham

However, incredibly, reports then emerged on Thursday that talks had broken down with Fonseca.

In turn, it was claimed that Spurs were set to move for Gennaro Gattuso.

On Friday morning, though, word has spread that Spurs will not be making Gattuso their new boss.

As per The Athletic:

Tottenham’s protracted search for a new manager will continue after the north London club decided against appointing Gennaro Gattuso

The Athletic’s report also details the backlash which Gattuso’s potential appointment had been met with on the part of Tottenham’s fans across social media.

This was in relation to past comments made by the Italian regarding the role of women in football, same-sex marriage and racism:
