  ‘As I understand it’ - Alasdair Gold backs reports as club chiefs eye 'perfect' boss for Spurs According to a report by football.london journalist Alasdair Gold, free agent boss Massimiliano Allegri ‘certainly has his admirers’ within Tottenham Hotspur – backing up previous claims in the media.

The Lowdown: Nuno leaving Wolves

The 47-year-old has previously been linked with the vacant Spurs job, and there was much speculation when it was confirmed by Wolves that he would be leaving after the final game of 2020/2021.

Report: Levy in pole position to sign ‘absolutely sensational’ powerhouse for Spurs

  Report: Levy in pole position to sign ‘absolutely sensational’ powerhouse for Spurs According to a report by reliable journalist Mike McGrath, writing for the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are in ‘pole position to land’ Lyon powerhouse Joachim Andersen. The Lowdown: Levy’s centre-back hunt continues… It is no secret that Spurs are looking into signing top class centre-back options for the 2021/2022 season as Daniel Levy looks to shore […]It is no secret that Spurs are looking into signing top class centre-back options for the 2021/2022 season as Daniel Levy looks to shore up a problem position for the Lilywhites ahead of the appointment of a new manager.

Appointed in 2017, there is no doubt he has been a success – having guided Wolves to two seventh-placed finishes, an FA Cup semi-final and the quarter-finals of the Europa League during his tenure (The Telegraph).

However, he hasn’t been able to hit those same heights this season with Wolves set to finish in their lowest position since returning to the Premier League (The Telegraph).

The Latest: Gold drops Spurs update on Nuno

Writing on Twitter, reliable Spurs journalist Gold has quickly moved to quash the notion of Nuno taking the managerial vacancy in north London.

“For those many people asking,” he explained on social media.

“As I said previously and it’s still the case, I understand Nuno Espirito Santo is not a candidate for Spurs’ vacant managerial role.”

''This is painful', 'I'm sobbing' - Lots of Spurs fans flocked to Alasdair Gold's update

  ''This is painful', 'I'm sobbing' - Lots of Spurs fans flocked to Alasdair Gold's update Lots of Tottenham fans have been talking about the latest tweet from Alasdair Gold that emerged on social media.

His tweet stated that Kane was announced to have won three of the club’s Player of the Season awards. The Englishman got an ovation from the Spurs fans and a lady in the crowd was holding a banner which said ‘Harry Kane, Tottenham legend’.

As a result, Spurs supporters are very unlikely to see him come through the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium doors any time soon despite reports he already has a new job lined up after quitting Wolves.

The Verdict: Bad news for Spurs

While Nuno may not be who chairman Daniel Levy is looking for even despite Man City boss Pep Guardiola calling him ‘excellent’ in 2018 (Express and Star), you could argue that time is running out for the Lilywhites to make an appointment quickly enough for a strong 2021/2022.

According to reports, Tottenham had wished to appoint a new boss before the end of this season (football.london), but that now appears dead in the water given Spurs take on Leicester City in their last game this afternoon.

Ideally, Spurs will give their new boss time to shape the squad in his mould and have a say on both incoming and outgoing transfers.

If Levy and co are going to get the fans back on side, sufficient preparation for next campaign is an absolute necessity and appointing their new manager as soon as possible is a huge part of that.
