Spurs chiefs don’t feel ‘unbelievable’ 49-year-old manager is right for them – journalist

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a host of managers in recent weeks.

And with Spurs boss Antonio Conte appearing to be on the brink at N17, speculation has intensified massively.

One manager linked with the Tottenham reins is Thomas Tuchel, formerly of Chelsea.

Earlier this week, ESPN journalist James Olley claimed there was a real possibility he could join Spurs.

However, CBS reporter Ben Jacobs has now reported that Tottenham’s hierarchy isn’t too keen on Tuchel.

Apparently, they don’t see him as quite the right fit for Spurs.

And in wake of Conte’s interview last weekend, the Tottenham board is especially keen to land the right personality.

Jacobs wrote on CaughtOffside on Substack: “My understanding has always been Thomas Tuchel is not a leading candidate.

“He is obviously a top coach, but not seen as quite the right fit by the senior leadership team at Spurs.

“And after Conte’s outbursts, finding the right type of personality, not just coach, may well prove important.”

Spurs after calming influence in the dugout?

There’s no doubting Tuchel is an ‘unbelievable’ manager.

He hit the ground running at Chelsea and took them to Champions League glory months after joining.

Tuchel has won a total of 12 trophies in his career as well as the World’s Best Club Coach award in 2021.

However, the 49-year-old has been deemed to have a ‘more abrasive and contentious side’ too.

And after Conte and Jose Mourinho, Spurs perhaps may want a more calming influence in the dugout.

That could be a reason why Tottenham don’t fancy Tuchel at the moment, even though he clearly has all the right credentials.
