Tottenham Hotspur Linked With Zinedine Zidane, Make Contact With Nagelsmann




Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly linked with French tactician, Zinedine Zidane days after they sacked their Italian tactician, Antonio Conte.

Aside from Zinedine Zidane, reports in the United Kingdom claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with Julian Nagelsmann who was sacked by Bayern Munich a few days ago.

Naija News recalls that Tottenham Hotspur sacked Conte after serving as the club’s manager for 16 months. Though under him, Tottenham crashed out of the Champions League in the round of 16 and currently struggling to finish in the top four, it is believed that the 53-year-old tactician was sacked for criticizing the club’s management and players during a post-match press conference.

Hence, a hunt for a new manager has begun while Conte’s former assistant coach, Cristian Stellini, remains in charge of the club until the end of the 2022-2023 season.

The Premier League side is making every effort to have a permanent coach ahead of this summer transfer window and it seems Spurs are aiming for some of the biggest names in the game.

According to a report by Sky Sports Italia, Zidane who has not accepted any managerial job since he terminated his contract with Real Madrid at the end of the 2020-2021 season has been shortlisted by the Premier League club for the job.

Recall that the 50-year-old won a record three Champions League in a row during his first spell at Real Madrid which makes him a hot cake in the managerial world.

Before now, he was heavily linked with the head coach job of France’s national team but he was not given one. Reports also claimed that Paris Saint Germain has shortlisted him as a possible replacement for Christophe Galtier who could be sacked at the end of this season.
