Tottenham hold meeting with managerial candidate who doesn’t even have UEFA coaching licence

The Lilywhites are on the hunt for a new permanent boss

Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Stade Des Reims boss Will Still as they look to find a new manager following the departure of Antonio Conte last month, it has been reported.

Spurs are on the hunt for their third permanent manager in two years after they parted ways with the Italian last month, leaving his assistant coach Christian Stellini and former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason in caretaker charge until the end of the season.

As it stands, it seems as though any decision will be made at the end of the season, however, with the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique and Graham Potter all linked with the vacant role.

Now, a new name has entered the frame in the form of Still, who took over at French side Reims in November and has taken them on an excellent run which currently sees them up in 8th place and scrapping for a European place.

According to reports in Italy, Spurs have sounded out Still over a potential switch to north London this summer, with the hope that a young hungry manager in the Spurs dugout would yield more results than the more experienced route that they have taken in recent seasons with Jose Mourinho and Conte.

Still has yet to earn his UEFA pro licence, and at one point earlier in the season was being fined 22,000 euros per game while in charge of Reims, though he has since confirmed he has started his course to become a fully fledged coach.

The Englishman would certainly be a change from the options already linked with a move to north London, but would certainly bring some fresh blood to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
