Tottenham have identified RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann as their preferred replacement for José Mourinho should his poor form continue, it is claimed.
Mourinho is under pressure after Tottenham’s form worsened. They have lost five of their last six league games and have also been eliminated from the FA Cup.
Their form has seen them slide down the league table to ninth. It was a notable drop considering they were the best in the league in December.
Mourinho’s position is now at risk. According to The Telegraph, the next four games will be crucial to your destiny.
Spurs will play the second leg of their Europa League tie with Wolfsberger on Thursday. Then there will be Premier League matches against Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace for the next week or so.
With all three opponents in the bottom half of the table, it could be a critical opportunity for Tottenham to score points.
However, in the event of no results, Mourinho may be asked questions again.
The Telegraph Add that Tottenham already have a possible replacement for Mourinho in mind. Nagelsmann is at the top of his short list.
The 33-year-old is one of the most promising coaches in Europe. Last season, he guided Leipzig to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Many top clubs are aware of its potential; it was an option for Chelsea after Frank Lampard was fired in January. In the end, he rejected them.
The reason was because he was not willing to leave Leipzig in the middle of the season. That may ruin Tottenham’s own plans if Mourinho is fired, but it doesn’t mean their current manager is under less pressure.
