Report: Tottenham are now considering appointing the 'best coach in the world', not Nagelsmann
A fresh claim suggests that Tottenham Hotspur are considering appointing Arne Slot as their brand-new manager.
While Julian Nagelsmann’s name has been thrown into the hat as the prime candidate to take Antonio Conte’s job as N17, the Feyenoord boss’ name has come into consideration, who Alireza Jahanbakhsh branded as the ‘best coach in the world’ once.
Whether Tottenham Hotspur fans would be happy with the appointment of Arne Slot is a conversation for another day but he is certainly being considered.
Tottenham mulling over Arne Slot appointment as next manager
Slot has done an impressive job in the Eredivisie, with his side looking dead set to win the league title, sitting six points clear at the top of the table so far this season.
Feyenoord also find themselves in the semi-final of the KNVB Cup, as they prepare themselves to lock horns against Ajax in April.
The Times have reported that seeing how promising Arne Slot has looked up until now, he has impressed some members of the Tottenham board, who are considering his name as their potential next manager.
However, it has been mentioned that chairman Daniel Levy remains insistent on bringing Julian Nagelsmann on board to steer the ship.
Tottenham should listen to Daniel Levy in this instance
Not to say that Arne Slot would not make for a capable appointment as Tottenham manager but when Julian Nagelsmann is available, Daniel Levy is right to reportedly prioritise bringing him in.
Nagelsmann is undoubtedly one of the best coaches in Europe, with the building job he did at RB Leipzig exactly what Spurs are in need of, whilst being one point behind Borussia Dortmund in the league whilst being in the Champions League quarter-final emphasises how unjust his sacking was.
The German is a managerial wonderkid in a sense and to pass up on the opportunity of working alongside him would be unacceptable.
