After the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo after just 4 months in the role, the next Spurs manager will be given a 45-minute rolling contract by the club’s chairman and co-owner, Daniel Levy.
The contract will come with an option to extend to a full 90 minutes if the club is winning that particular game at halftime.
Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is the bookies favourite to take charge for the first half of Spurs’ next league game, with Eddie Howe lined up should his side be losing at half-time.
It is believed that Levy will consider turning to former Liverpool and England midfielder Steve Gerrard if Spurs end up actually losing their next league game against Everton.
A statement on the club’s website read, “We would like to offer Nuno our gratitude for his efforts, but his inability to get into the Champions League places simply because Daniel clicked his fingers means that he simply had to go.”
Pressure has been mounting on Espirito after a humiliating defeat at the hands of Manchester United, a side many are tipping for relegation, and a side that Spurs should definitely be beating every single time they play them – obviously.
A club spokesman told us, “I would like to assure all Spurs fans that we are interviewing the best and brightest coaches in world football, and whoever is lucky enough to get the job of Spurs manager on a full-time basis will have our complete and unequivocal support.
“Wel, until at least lunchtime tomorrow.”
