Tottenham Hotspur have made progress in their search for a manager to join them during the summer and have reportedly cut their shortlist back to two candidates.
What’s the news?
Tottenham have intensified their search for a new manager after caretaker manager Cristian Stellini was sacked following a dramatic 6-1 loss away at Newcastle United. Ryan Mason has taken over, but the former midfielder is set to step down at the end of the season. Meanwhile Spurs have been looking at candidates to take over and now two candidates remain: Feyenoord head-coach Arne Slot and former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann. According to the Dutch affiliate of ESPN, Slot would already have held talks with Tottenham last week and the same would apply to Nagelsmann. Both candidates would be open to a job in London and so the choice lies with Spurs owner Daniel Levy. He would reportedly like to make a final choice before the end of the season.
In the meantime…
Tottenham have lost sight of the top four after their dramatic 4-3 injury time loss at Liverpool this weekend. The Londeners have dropped into sixth position on the table and could drop down even further if Brighton Hove & Albion win any of the three games they have in hand over Spurs and Liverpool. Tottenham themselves have four games to play this season, starring with a home game against Crystal Palace on Saturday. After that they will travel away to Aston Villa, play Brentford in London and end the season with an away game at troubled Leeds United.
