After the mutual termination of Antonio Conte brought the number of Spurs managers in the last four years to four, it has been decided by the club’s chairman and co-owner, Daniel Levy, that the next Spurs manager will only be given a 45-minute rolling contract.
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 Bayer manager Julian Nagelsmann is the current bookies’ favourite to take charge for the first half of Spurs’ next league game, with former boss Mauricio Pocchettino lined up should his side be losing at half-time.
It is believed that Levy will consider turning to former Rangers and Aston Villa boss 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 Antonio our gratitude for his efforts, but his inability to secure a trophy simply because Daniel clicked his fingers means that he had to go.”
Pressure has been mounting on conte after clutching a draw from the jaws of victory against a Southampton side battling relegation, 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.
“Well, until at least lunchtime tomorrow.”
Meanwhile, Levy himself has asked fans not to be concerned by the fact that he keeps hiring world-class managers with a track record of winning trophies, but they all seem to fail the very moment they are forced to work under him.
