Tottenham make approach for ex-Barcelona boss following Gattuso rejection

Tottenham make approach for ex-Barcelona boss following Gattuso rejection

A fresh update on the ongoing and at times laughable managerial search at Tottenham Hotspur has come to the fore over the last 24 hours.

Gattuso, Fonseca & more

Ongoings on the white half of North London have of course taken centre stage in the media over the last couple of weeks.

This comes amid the Lilywhites’ ongoing efforts to appoint a new manager ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Since the decision was made to dismiss Jose Mourinho back in April, a whole host of tacticians from across the continent have been tipped to take up the reins at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

To this point, however, the efforts of Daniel Levy and co. have proven fruitless.

Both Antonio Conte and Paulo Fonseca, for example, have looked near locks to take up the reins at Spurs at one point or another since the beginning of the month.

A combination of indecision and lack of financial backing, however, ultimately saw deals for both collapse.

Gennaro Gattuso, meanwhile, was the latest name tipped to bring an end to the managerial hunt in the English capital earlier this week, but negotiations with the Italian, too, eventually came to nothing.

Valverde eyed

In turn, with the options continuing to thin out, and pre-season ahead of the 2021/22 campaign just weeks from getting underway, those in a position of power at Tottenham will need to act fast, if they hope to avoid becoming a legitimate laughing stock across the European football landscape.

As per the reliable Fabrizio Romano, though, Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici indeed already appear to have another potential option for the club’s bench lined up.

The tactician in question? Ernesto Valverde.

It is suggested that the Spurs hierarchy are now back in contact with a number of candidates, chief among them former Barcelona boss Valverde, for whom an ‘approach’ has been made.

Also still on the wishlist in North London are both Ralf Rangnick and Erik ten Hag.
