Who are the remaining Tottenham managerial contenders after Arne Slot rejects them

With Arne Slot out of the running to be the next Spurs boss, 101 Great Goals takes a look at where the north London club could turn next...


Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a major blow in their pursuit of a new manager this morning with Arne Slot staying at Feyenoord.

The Dutch coach looked set to join Spurs, however, in an extraordinary turn of events, the 44-year-old will instead sign a new contract.

Slot even ruled himself out of the job by revealing: “I have been hearing a lot of rumours going around about other interest in me.

“Although I am thankful, my wish is to stay at Feyenoord and continue working on what we created last year.”

Now, Daniel Levy and co must start their search for the next candidate for the job.

Ryan Mason

Ryan Mason is sure to be a contender for the Tottenham job.

He has done a fairly decent job whilst as interim, but for the club’s supporters, it would be significantly underwhelming.

There is also a feeling that with just a few games under his belt as a coach, this job has come around far too soon for him.

Brendan Rodgers

Having done very well at Swansea, Liverpool, Celtic and Leicester, Brendan Rodgers’ stock is still very high.

But for many fans, this may also feel pretty underwhelming considering his final season at Leicester.

The Foxes look set to go down following a dismal season in which Rodgers was sacked.

Rodgers is a manager Spurs have admired for many years though.

Ange Postecoglou

Ange Postecoglou would certainly be able to provide the attacking football Tottenham supporters are craving.

He has made his Celtic team a real force, with the Scottish champions netting 109 times in the SPL.

However, there will be some doubts as to whether the Australian coach can step up to the Premier League.

Rúben Amorim

Rúben Amorim is doing an excellent at in Portugal with Sporting CP.

The 38-year-old has won four major titles with Sporting and worked wonders with several of their players.

However, his project there is going very well and it is unlikely that he will want to leave for Spurs.

Julian Nagelsmann

Julian Nagelsmann looks to be off the table following a collapse in talks.

However, if Spurs can sort the right sporting director out, they may be able to convince him.

But at this stage, the German becoming the next Tottenham boss looks highly unlikely.

Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique could once again become a top contender.

He had been a target for Fabio Paratici, who left the club last month.

There are major doubts though over his style of football, suitability for the Premier League and another man who could clash with the board.
