Daniel Levy, Tottenham president, has a job on his hands. The Super League fiasco, from which all English teams have already been erased due to popular pressure, is joined by the dismissal of José Mourinho in a week in which the team plays its first title since 2008. In what can undoubtedly be one of the most convulsive weeks in the club’s history, the Spurs leader, who has signed Ryan Mason as interim coach until the end of the season, must decide the direction to be followed by the entity, and for that he needs a coach who brings with him a stable club philosophy for the coming years. In that shortlist of candidates in which there are names such as Nuno, Nagalsmann or Allegri, The Athletic newspaper assures that Marcelino has entered, with whose representatives they would have already contacted from the London team.
Despite the fact that the Spaniard has just landed, as they say, at Athletic, his failure in two almost consecutive Copa del Rey finals could make him rethink his short-term future. Despite the fact that the former Valencian has a contract until 2022, and that Tottenham would have to pay some kind of clause, Marcelino has never hidden that his intention was for his next project to be with a team outside of La Liga.Therefore, you could be seduced by an idea that would give you a quality leap on the international scene.
However, that there has been a contact does not mean, far from it, that Marcelino is the chosen one. For the moment, the favorite remains Julian Nagelsmann, RB Leipzig coach and considered one of the most promising coaches on the European scene. His offensive football and his fantastic work in the development of young talents make him, surely, the one with the most ballots to replace Mourinho, but, In addition to Bayern Munich having already had an eye on him, his current club also wants a significant compensation for letting him go and that could put back some spurs with a rather delicate financial situation.
