Tottenham’s Next Permanent Manager Outright Odds

Manager Betting Specials

Earlier this week, Daniel Levy decided to sack Jose Mourinho on the week the Carabao Cup final. This came as a huge surprise seeing that Mourinho was brought in to win trophies but the quest for a new manager has already begun.

These are the outright favourites to get the job on a permanent basis.

Maurizio Sarri (3.00)

Maurizio Sarri is rumoured to be eyeing a return to London, which is a surprise considering the fact that the one year he spent at Chelsea didn’t go too well. This is despite the fact that the 62 year old won the Europa League and finished third in the Premier League in his first and only season at the club. Chelsea fans were unhappy with the Italian’s team selection and his possession-based style of football which sometimes lacked conviction and intensity

His one year stint at Juventus was pretty much more of the same. The fans were not too pleased with the style of football that Juventus played which was the one of the two main reasons why he was sacked. Another one would be getting knocked out by Lyon in the Champions League round of 16.

This appointment would not make sense at all unless Sarri would bring the quality he showed at Napoli where he made a name for himself with a unique and entertaining style of football. Napoli gave Juventus a run for their money in the title races in the three years he spent at the club

Julian Nagelsmann (4.50)

Out of all the managers who are linked with this job, Nagelsmann would be the best fit for Tottenham. He is a young German manager who’s already made a name for himself at the highest level. The 33 year old has done an exceptional job at RB Leipzig. He guided them to the Champions League semi-finals last season.

He’s been at RB since 2019 and has taken them to the Champion League in every season. Two of the main reasons Nagelsmann would be a great fit for Tottenham are; his team plays a similar style of football to Maurizio Pochettino and like Pochettino, he doesn’t need to have the best players in the world to succeed. He is able to improve and get the best out of the players at his disposal.

German managers have been doing well recently; when you look at Klopp, Flick and Tuchel. You can also add Nagelsmann to that list even though he is yet to win a trophy in his young managerial career. He’s done a great job at Leipzig and would most likely do the same in North London

Brendon Rodgers (6.50)

Brendon Rodgers would be another ideal fit for Spurs. He has proven that he is a good manager in his time at Liverpool and now at Leicester. If The Foxes are to finish in the top 4 this season, it will be a wonderful achievement for the Northern-Irishman as his team faded away last season to finish fifth after being in the top 4 for the majority of that season.

Unlike the other two managers, Rodgers has learned to be more pragmatic in the big games which has boded his team well this season with wins over Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea.

The only obstacle Daniel Levy would face, is prizing him away from the King Power Stadium. Why would Rodgers leave Leicester for Tottenham? Or why would Leicester allow him to leave? Especially if they qualify for the Champions League next season.
